Late, in the previous week, Rs 299 and Rs 199 plans were rolled out by Reliance Jio with 2 GB and 1.2 GB data every day, respectively. It also has other freebies including SMS and free calls. And now Vodafone has surfaced as the foremost operator to counteract this step with the roll out of the Rs. 198 plan. This new scheme will offer analogous calling and data benefits.
The prevailing Vodafone customers will receive data of 1 GB every day, 100 SMS every day, and bundled calls for a recharge of Rs 198. In contrast, the new subscribers will have to pay Rs 229 for the identical benefits. The new pack has 28-day validity similar to that of the new Jio packs. Vodafone India’s Associate Director for Consumer Business, Avneesh Khosla, said, “With unlimited calling and 1 GB data for each day, the packs will look out of all their (customers) communication requirements.”
As has been the standard for the majority of telecom operators, Vodafone is placing a limit on the “unlimited” calls. Users will be capable of making free calls valued only 250 Minutes on daily basis and 1,000 Minutes every week. Ahead of this, calls will be charged at 30 paise/minute for the residual week and day. Moreover, they can call an utmost of 300 exclusive numbers only in 7-day duration; if this cap is contravened, the call cost will become 30 paise/minute for the remaining validity period.
The statement by the firm mentioned that the new plan is accessible across all Vodafone 4G circles. Nevertheless, the official website doesn’t bring up the new Rs 198 recharge in few circles, including Chennai, Delhi-NCR, and so on. Thus, users should ensure the plan states data allocation of 1 GB every day, as packs at an analogous price (such as the Rs 199 recharge) provides just 1 GB data for the complete 28-day validity duration.
