BSNL added one more plan to its bouquet, Vennela match plan. It is available for both 2G and 3G prepaid customers in Andhra Pradesh circle.

BSNL cleverly combined all the existing plans to derive this plan. Free monthly messages offer which is missing from Match plan is included in this plan, as well as friends and family offer. One more good addition in this plan is reduced night calling charges, which is missing in vennela and nestham plans.
