There were widespread reports that BSNL were to offer 20GB data for just Rs.50, and thanks to thousands of shares within minutes, it spread like wildfire. But as Digit reports, the story turns out to be yet another hoax that managed to fool anybody and prove once again that people would share anything and everything without checking the facts.
Sanjay Kumar, GM, Sales and Marketing, BSNL has confirmed that news of such a plan are untrue, Digit reports.
BSNL has no plans to offer 20GB of 3G of data for Rs.50, Mr. Sanjay Kumar said. “We also don’t know where this story is originating from. As of now we don’t have any such plans,” he told Digit. Rumours had been out saying that this plan was going to be under the Prime Minister’s Digital India initiative, but as it turns out, the reports were, sadly for many, fabricated.
Well played, the evil mind behind the story.
