How to recharge BSNL Prepaid online safely!

This is the safest way to recharge BSNL prepaid online. Read if you don't know the how to do that or don't know the exact denomination of BSNL prepaid.

It is very easy to recharge bsnl prepaid online safely from the official BSNL portal. Yes BSNL official site, That’s because you don’t need to worry about the exact denomination of a recharge. You may get the current data plans from here but again this may vary Rs. 3 by circle to circle. This is why I will not recommend many other good sites which offers electronic recharge for your BSNL mobile.

If you already know the denomination about your online recharge then you may try other site. But there is one more dark side for recharging BSNL mobiles from other sites. Sometimes recharge may failed due to any technical reason and your money will be debited. In the case they (the site you used for online recharge) may take up to 7-14 days to refund your balance. If you will recharge your BSNL prepaid online from BSNL portal then you will not have to worry about failure in recharge as compared to non-official sites.

So, feel free to recharge your bsnl mobile number from official website.

    Thanks…how do we print the Prepaid (iPad Dataplan) recharges that was done in the past? For Postpaid, I am seeing the Transaction history or receipts. But for Prepaid, if I accidentally close the browser, there is no way to get back to the site and print the receipt. There is no email receipt or anything.
