1GB data, unlimited calling for 28 days at Rs 199: Vodafone counters Jio’s Rs 149 plan

Vodafone India, the second-biggest telecom operator in India has launched a new plan for its prepaid customers in a bid to counter the rising competition from newcomer Reliance Jio. The new recharge plan, priced at Rs 199 is valid for 28 days and will offer 1GB 3G/4G data along with unlimited local and STD calls.

However, there is a limit on free calls. Customers can make 250 minutes of free calls per day and 1000 minutes of calls in a week.

If a user exhausts the above limit then Vodafone will charge 30 paise per minute for the rest of the day.

Experts say Vodafone’s Rs 199 plan aims to counter Reliance Jio’s Rs 149 recharge plan, which offers 4.2 GB data for 28 days with a daily limit of 0.15 GB per day along with unlimited local and STD calls. However, Vodafone’s Rs 199 plan has no daily cap on data usage.

Recently, Vodafone has also launched many other recharge plans to retain its existing subscribers and increase its revenue per user.
