The Department of Posts will release a commemorative stamp in the city to mark Mother Teresa’s canonisation in the Vatican on September 4.

Mother Teresa will be declared a saint on Sunday. Minister of State for Communications (Independent charge) Manoj Sinha will release the stamp at a function organised at Divine Child High School auditorium here, which would be attended by the Chief Post Master General of Maharashtra and Goa circle, a senior India Post official said.

He said issuing of the stamp is a gesture of respect and gratitude for the Nobel laureate nun for her exemplary humanitarian service towards the mankind. A commemorative stamp is a postage stamp, often issued on a significant date, such as an anniversary, to honour or commemorate a place, event, person or object.

“The decision to release a commemorative stamp on the canonisation for Mother Teresa has been taken by the advisory committee of Philately. September 4 is going to be a special day for India too, the day several other countries are also honouring the great lady,” the official said, adding India has been the ‘karmabhoomi’ of Mother Teresa.

The Vatican had earlier chosen Mumbai-based graphic designer Karen Vaswani’s logo as the official emblem for the canonisation ceremony. Vaswani’s design depicts the classic pose of Mother Teresa looking affectionately at a child whom she holds in her arms.

BSNL to Offer 1GB per 1 Rupee

Reliance's Mukesh Ambani has made a historic entry into the telecom market recently making announcement for unlimited calls and 4G data at only Rs.50 per 1 Gb. When everyone was so happy to hear this news, state owned BSNL has come up with new broadband plans.

BSNL today said it will soon launch a promotional unlimited wireline broadband plan that effectively translates into less than Re 1 per GB download cost for subscribers if they use up to 300GB data in a month.

Attempting to take Reliance Jio's 4G offer of Rs 50 per GB head-on, BSNL is looking to hook new customers to its wireline broadband offering. 

BSNL's Chairman and Managing Director has today said in a press state that "Under this plan, customers can download unlimited Broadband data without bothering about any data limit in GB. BSNL shall offer 2 Mbps speed under this plan."

He also said that if customer uses the plan continuously in a month they can download up to 300GB data by paying just Rs.249 only.

"Hence, 1 GB of data download will effective cost comes out as less than Re 1 per GB. After six months, customer will be migrated to one of the regular broadband plan based on the choice of the customer," BSNL said.

Shrivastava added that BSNL is the only operator offering lowest per GB data download cost plan under broadband services in the country.

This is the first counter step to Reliance JIOs data storm. Lets see how other operators will react to this. Ultimately our people are going to get data at very very less prices in future,

Aee..!! Is Reliance Jio providing free unlimited 4G. Who told you..??

So far so Good. Gone those days of Jio’s free Unlimited 4G data. There’s no more unlimited data in Reliance Jio 4G.
As expected!! They aren’t here for charity. Preview offer was just to attract customers. With the launch of Jio Welcome offer, Reliance has abolished its “unlimited” term for 4G Data. Under the welcome offer, people will get only 4 GB data per day, post which speeds will be reduced to 128 Kbps. It’s not truly unlimited.
In this welcome offer, you will have only 4GB data, that will be uniformly debited if you use Video Calling and Its own Jio apps like Jio TV, Jio Cinema etc.
  • P.S. This Welcome offer is available till 31st December of this year.
Now, I’m asking you? Is Reliance providing unlimited 4G data?
A Big no, gone those days.
  • All, Reliance Jio is providing free is it’s VoLTE calling. This is the only thing for which Reliance is not going to charge you even in future.
  • Now, coming to the Jio Commercial plan (Starting from 1st January, 2017)
Has the plan attracted you? I guess, you have liked some of the plans. But I’m sure after reading the term and condition behind, you won’t like even a single plan from above list.
The Evil Side of Jio Commercial Data Plan.
  1. “Unlimited at Night” pertains to data used between 2AM – 5AM.
  2. Wi-Fi data benefits in the plans pertain to Wi-Fi data availed in the Public Wi-Fi hotspots of JioNEt 
  3. The data used by the consumers for Jio applications, Video calls and other content available on internet would be uniformly debited against plan data allocation.
  4. Unutilized free benefits will be forfeited at the end of validity.
  5. The prepaid packs with denominations Rs.19, Rs.129 and Rs.299 cannot be availed as a First recharge by new subscribers.
  6. 25% additional 4G WiFi data (can be used only through public Jio Hotspot) benefits will be provided to students on providing a valid identity card, as per process.
  7. There is a 49 rs top up for availing call conference ( min 4 people max 9 people )
  8. The above plans can only be availed by customers possessing a LTE compatible handset.
  9. One person can avail one sim of jio only , same handset cannot be used for availing two sims.
