    I had a similar experience with my old 3G sim.

    I recharged from the portal and the expiry date got extended. :D

    there is an option thats says

    after that login and do a normal recharge. Do a basic amount (depends on the state) for me its Rs.55/-

    I never thought about that. I never cared look into that page just made payment :p

    from what you said in OP about SIM validity i thought it was sim expiry date (see your expiry date is 20/02/2015)

    here is my screenshot.

    See my sim expired.

    It happened many times like this and i recharge the same Rs.55/- and the expiry date gets pushed further.

    I guess that the amount received from the recharge is valid until it gets used all out

    from this link http://www.bsnl.in/service/tariff_excel_pre.htm#RC the validity should be 30 days

    Just do a topup and the validity increases proportionally plus you get the normal talktime as usual. Topup for 100 and you get 90 days validity and so on as given on their site -- www.bsnl.in/service/tariff_excel_pre.htm

    West to a Retailer today.

    Sadly he told that I have spent 220 for 6 month validity(no other thing).

    Worst thing the validity 6 month will add after my expiry date.

    That mean my SIM showing Ex date July 20011.

    After this it will be showing Jan 2012.

    I hate to go any BSNL office.

    No choice have to look for a cheap new SIM.

    ^ Just *topup* for Rs 200 and you will get 6 months validity from *today*. Tried and tested by me! :p Or if you want to reconfirm, topup for Rs 10 and see if the validity has increased by 9 days or not.

    Plus due to new year offer most likely (depends on the circle) you will get full talk time as well for all topups above Rs 200. :)

    I've used PayTM, Freecharge & Mobikwik to topup my BSNL Mobile. All works.

    BSNL doesn't have separate Topup & Recharge now. Just do a Topup & your validity will increase.

    Check this page for Topup Amount - Validity details - Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd
