    Smile Bsnl online 3g data plan recharge :alternative

    I am from Guwahati,Assam. I couldnot recharge my 3G data plan at portal.bsnl.in. This option is not available at all circles. Now I have found an alternative to it-Rechargeguru. Her you can do online recharge of BSNL 3G data plan if you failed at BSNL site. Some extra charges will be levied.
    STEPS:
    1.
    REGISTER
    2.
    Select BSNL recharge.
    3.Select BSNL On Demand or Custom Made Online Recharge


    4.
    Press the "Add to Cart" blue button to go to next page.
    5.
    Press Order Now button.
    6. At "Special Instructions or Comments About Your Order" entered following -"Please recharge my 3G Data Plan with with Rs.275 data plan" Then press "Continue Checkout".
    7.
    At payment page select this option E-Billing Solution v2.5 Indian Rupee (INR) Payment Gateway | ITZ Card payment for payment.Some extra charges will be levied but its better than going to BSNL franchisee or office.
    8.
    After payment my data plan was recharged within 10 minutes.My advise contact the site ad before doing any 3G Data recharge, so that they can provide you information whether online recharge for your area is available or not.

    Thanks for providing info

    i will try this in future.

    Recharge with in 10 min will be good, when i recharged 606 recharge from bsnl portal it took 1 day for recharge.






    Reason for delay : Mobile recharge will be initiated on confirmation from the bank.

    Thumbs up Thanks for the info.I think we can re charge all operators !

    Dear sarma
    Thanks for the detailed step by step documented tutorial.
    Normally Iam very averse to any online re charge. But for a site like "Re charge Guru", on line re charge/ payment thro internet gateways is bread and butter. So they wont mess it up and it will be instant .
    I will sign up with re charge Guru and keep it for emergencies and I prefer payment thro internet banking and not credit card.
    ( Though I like to go my favourite retailer and chat a bit while doing business while doing re charge and finding out market info)
    By the way for the Rs 275 recharge you did -what was the charges ? Flat minimum or % varying upon the re charge amount ?

    In my opinion also it should be done only for emergency purposes. Local vendor who does BSNL recharge through mobile can do 3G recharge also. We can do this online recharge when we are traveling and there is no other way to recharge.

    By the way for the Rs 275 recharge you did -what was the charges ? Flat minimum or % varying upon the re charge amount ?
    I had to pay Rs.297/- for Rs.275/-. Rs.5 is charged as a fixed amount and plus "Low Amount (Bank/Credit Card Charges)" keep on varying according to amount of recharge. I just checked that Rs.606/- recharge will cost Rs.647/-. So its cannot be a alternative to Regular Vendor Recharge but can serve as a alternative to peoples of BSNL circles which don't have the online recharge facility through portal.bsnl.in.

    Thanks Sarma for the reply regarding charges.
    It is a bit steep but handy if you are travelling and wants out of state re charge.
    (Internet recharge- no home state/out of state problems like you face while going to a physical shop and re charging in home sate or out of state)
    (sometimes shops in out of state not able to re charge your voice/data packs)

    Yes PayTm is best. I am also using this site. Recharge is fast. I have tried with recharge guru. Once it worked but in 2nd time the transaction is still pending from last 25 - 30 days.
