The Telecom operator Idea has joined the list of telecom operators to add new prepaid plans to offer more to their subscribers. Earlier, Vodafone had introduced two new prepaid plans for its subscribers – Rs 999 and Rs 1,999 prepaid plans which offered long-term validity. And now, Idea too is coming up with the same priced prepaid plans for its subscribers. Idea launched the Rs 999 and Rs 1,999 prepaid plans, both of which come with one year/ 365 days validity.
Idea’s Rs 999 prepaid plan offers 12GB of data to its customers for 365 days. But this plan is only limited to Punjab circle only. The new plan was spotted by Telecom Talk and it is currently selling live in the beforementioned circle. Other than 12GB of 3G/4G data the Rs 999 plan offers unlimited voice calling on both home and roaming network, 100 SMS per day for 365 days. Other than that, the newly launched plan doesn’t bring any more offers and benefits. Comparing it to Vodafone’s plan which offers the same benefits but it also bundles the Vodafone Play subscription as well.
The second plan of Rs 1,999 prepaid recharge plan offers 1.5GB of 2G/3G/4G data everyday for a period of 365 days. If calculated, the plan offers a total of 547.5GB of data benefit to the user for a year. Other than data, the new plan also offers unlimited local, STD and roaming calls along with 100 SMS per day for a year. Currently, this plan is live only in the Kerala circle only. Currently, it hasn’t been revealed by the company when the plan will be brought to the other circles.
Furthermore, the telecom operator has also partnered with Citi Banks to launch an offer where the subscribers will get data and calling benefits for a year. But to avail the Citi Bank Credit card offer, the Idea user need to apply for a credit card on the Idea’s website. They also need to spend Rs 4,000 within 30 days of getting the card. The customers who fulfil these requirements will get 1.5GB of data and unlimited voice calling for 365 days. But this offer is available only on Idea and not on Vodafone.
