Patanjali Sim Cards
Reportedly, Patanjali is going to launch it’s new SIM Cards which will be known as Swadeshi Samdriddhi SIM Cards. He has already partnered with the state-run telecom operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited to fulfil this project on Patanjali Sim cards. Baba Ramdev himself and the whole community of his belief in Swadeshi. For the same reason, he has chosen BSNL to serve this purpose as BSNL is India’s telecom operator.
Apart from that Patanjali has already launched a new tariff plan called BSNL Patanjali Plan, where users will get data benefits with unlimited voice calling for 30 days at Rs 144 only. We will discuss in more details about this new BSNL Patanjali plan below in this article. For employees of Patanjali, the service has been started already. But normal people, as well as the normal public, will be soon introduced to the whole telecom service of Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali. Not only that, users who are anyway a member of Patanjali will also get some exclusive discounts on the pricing of Patanjali products.
Update 30 May 2018: BSNL and Patanjali tie-up is only for employees of the company and linked organisations. Patanjali are not entering the telecom sector to launch their own SIM cards. That’s only for company employees, not the general public.
The BSNL Patanjali Plan Details And Benefits
As mentioned earlier in this article, that Patanjali has partnered with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) to make this happen in reality, BSNL users as well can avail this plan. But for members of Patanjali and the Swadeshi Samriddhi Sim Cardholders will get extra benefits with this too.
Now come to the BSNL Patanjali plan details and benefits. The plan offers 2GB of high-speed data per day. Along with that, users will also get unlimited voice calling to any network excepting the Mumbai and Delhi circle. And the voice calls do not have any limit like other telecom operators. Roaming calls are also free of cost. Apart from that, users will also be given 100 of SMSes each day. The whole plan comes with the validity period of 30 days. The final price of this plan has been set to Rs 144 only. I also think that this all-new BSNL Patanjali Plan will serve most of the user’s purpose as 2GB of data and 100 SMSes a day are more than enough for normal internet users.
And not only that, if users subscribe for a longer period at once, they will be charged less than the actual price of the plan. For this, it has provided three different subscriptions. First one comes with 30 days of validity at Rs 144 which is normal, then for the 180 days validity, it will charge Rs 792 instead of Rs 864. So, with the second subscription plan, you are saving Rs 72. And the third subscription plan comes with 365 days of validity period at Rs 1584 where the actual price should be around Rs 1752. So, there, you will save Rs 168 by availing the plan for the whole year of the validity period.
Which Benefits Are Offered Along With Patanjali Sim Cards?
First of all, I would like to mention that, both Patanjali Sim cards and Swadeshi Samriddhi SIM cards are two different names of the same thing. So, do not be confused with these terms. Both represent the same. With, these Patanjali SIM cards, you will get exclusive tariff plans which are not available with any other telecom operators. But that is not enough as all the major telcos like Reliance Jio, Airtel, Vodafone, etc. are offering very competitive pricing for almost save benefits.
But there are some extra benefits and advantages which are available exclusively only with Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Sim cards. Once you get one for you by submitting all the required documents with the process described below, you will also get free health, accidental and insurances. Reportedly, in an interview taken by a news reporter, Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev’s has told that the Patanjali Sim cards also known as the Swadeshi Samriddhi Sim Cards will offer medical insurances worth Rs 2.5 lakh and life insurance worth Rs 5 lakh too. However, the insurances are available in case of road accidents only. Apart from that, in the same interview, Baba Ramdev also said that the whole SIM card concept is for prosperity for charity. And the list of benefits does not end here. Swadeshi Samriddhi sim card holders will also get extra 10% discount on all the products made by Patanjali. What do you think? Is not it great news?
