MTNL has come up with an interesting 3G plan called the Jeevansathi data plan targeted at tablet users. They are offering 10GB of 3G data valid for 60 days along with 20 minutes of free video/voice calls, all this for Rs. 800 only.

The Jeevansathi data plan is currently available for MTNL users who are subscribed to any of its prepaid plan. These users can opt for the Jeevansathi plan wherein they get a new kit (essentially a SIM) with lifetime validity. The SIM will be active even after the plan expires.

For Rs. 800 users will get a SIM with 10GB data usage, that they need to consumer within 2 months. Once this plan expires, users can choose from other 3G plan or simply stop using it. The unused data cannot be forwarded or merged with other plans.

Jeevansathi 3G data plan Key features

  • SIM card with Lifetime validity.
  • 10GB, 20 min video / voice calls free – to be consumed within 60 days.
  • Price Rs. 800 (one time).

Though the MTNL plan is targeted for Tablet users in mind, I think you can simply get the SIM and use it on your phone too.  However MTNL is smart enough to make this offer available only for prepaid users (existing MTNL customers).  For more information on this plan or to subscribe to, call MTNL.
