Users can avail unlimited voice calla and data per month with BSNL's Rs. 97 pack. The handset also comes bundled with BSNL SIM card. That said, unlike JioPhone, Bharat 1 will no be restricted to BSNL's network, and can be used on any network, which means you can use SIM card of any other network including Jio to access 4G VoLTE services. It's worth mentioning that BSNL does not 4G VoLTE services live yet.
