In the BSNL configuration you do not need to set up the DNS manually.

I'm assuming BSNL has given you the UT-300R2U Router.

The best way to go about it would be to reset the router.
Then goto and open the router menu.
Click on DHCP and click on No DHCP ( We try it manually first to make 
sure that the issue is not with DHCP )
Now, go to WAN settings, and enter your username and password.

Finally, go to Status->Device Info and check if the device is connected.
In case it is not connected, go to Status->Log and find out what the 
last entry says.
If it's not too clear, then clear the logs and try the whole process again.

If things are working fine there, then the problem is with your network 
configuration rather than the BSNL setup.
In which case there would be a lot of people here on the community who 
can guide you better.
