Bad network? Poor connectivity? Well, your problem is solved if you are a Patanjali employee. Yoga guru Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali in an alliance with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is launching a SIM card specifically for Patanjali employees.

While reports on Monday, 28 May, suggested that Patanjali was officially entering the telecom sector after a tie-up with BSNL, according to the press release, the tie-up is exclusively for Patanjali employees.

There is no official clarification yet on if the SIM cards will be available to everybody.

The plan of Rs 144 will come with:

  • Unlimited calling on local and STD calls
  • 2 GB data pack
  • 100 outgoing SMSes
  • Medical insurance of Rs 2.5 lakh and life insurance of Rs 5 lakh (subject to a number of conditions)

Sunil Garg, BSNL chief General Manager, who was present at the launch, hailed the new offer as “BSNL’s best plan”.

Patanjali’s plan is BSNL’s best plan. In Rs 144, one can make unlimited calls from any part of the country. We are giving 2 GB data pack, 100 SMSes. The members of Patanjali just have to show their identity and their SIM will be activated soon after some paperwork.
