On the 18th of last month, I received my BSNL Bharat Fiber (FTTH) connection. Should I make a monthly payment?

From the date of activation to the final day of the preceding month, BSNL will be sending recurring charges. This implies that you just need to pay the corresponding fees, or fees from the 18th to the 30th of the prior month.

For instance, if you have the Bharat Fiber 500GB CUL Plan and pay a monthly fee of Rs 777, the proportional costs from the 18th to the 30th of the preceding month would be computed as follows:

  • Monthly Rent = Rs 777/-
  • (Rs 777) / (30 Days) = 25.9 is the daily rent.
  • Charges from the 18th to the 30th (13 Days) in proportion: Rs 25.9 x 13 Days = Rs 336.7
