Just last week there were plenty of post on social media claiming that Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BNSL) is beating every other operator out there by launching a plan that gives its customers an unbelievable 20GB of 3G data for just Rs 50. As many would have suspected the hard to believe news was fake.

Many even went on to claim that the 20GB of data was actually subsidized thanks to Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Digital India’ initiative. Adding to that was something more unrealistic, that the plan could also be shared among five friends with the other four using the data for free.

Times of India confirmed from an official source pointing out that “BSNL has not officially declared any offer like 20GB 3G data for Rs 50 and neither does the company intends to do so.”. Putting all rumours to rest.

BSNL was recently in the news for other reasons. The state-run telecom firm BSNL on Tuesday said its customers using its hosting and email services will soon have a facility to retrieve their mails deleted as long as 30 years ago.

The facility is now available for customers using @bsnl.in’ , ‘@sancharnet.in’, ‘@dataone.in’ and domains hosted with BSNL. While the company has started offering service to retrieve e-mail deleted in last 15 days for free, it will start service for longer duration soon.
