New Delhi: Intensifying the war on telecom tariff started by Reliance Jio, state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited has introduced a new prepaid plan offering unlimited calls and 1GB data per day for 1 year.

Under the BSNL plan called 'Maximum' prepaid plan, users in India will get unlimited data access for 365 days and unlimited voice calls (Local and STD) for 181 days at Rs 999.

However, the new plan will not be available in North-East India including Assam and Jammu and Kashmir circles.
