Vodafone is providing pick customers two new plans with 1GB information per day, unlimited local and STD calls, in addition to free outgoing roaming calls. The new plans are likely in response to the Jio tariff revisionthat raised the price of the popular Rs. 399 program and introduced a few new plans. This is the latest in a series of prepaid plans launched by incumbent operators to maintain the Jio juggernaut at bay, especially in the wake of new cashback offers started by the new telco to lure more new subscribers by giving cashbacks and vouchers of up to Rs. 2,599.

The Rs. 509 Vodafone pack comes with 1GB information a day, bundled local and STD calls, free-roaming outgoing calls, and 100 SMSes per day for 84 days. There is limit on the bundled calls — consumers can make up to 250 minutes of calls each day and 1,000 minutes each week without charge. This plan is in direct competition with the Rs. 459 Jio program which provides 1GB information per day, 84-day validity, totally free calls (including outgoing), 100 SMSes each day, and accessibility to Jio programs. Reliance Jio also has a Rs. 509 plan, but that comes with 2GB data every day and 49-day validity, and the other freebies the operator offers.

Vodafone’s Rs. 458 program has validity of 70 days, and provides customers with 1GB data every day, 100 SMSes, free roaming calls, and bundled calls. The daily and weekly FUPs on calls applies with this strategy is just like that of the Rs. 509 plan. Jio’s plan offering similar benefits is priced at Rs. 399.

While these plans are available only to choose customers on pan-India basis, it is likely Vodafone will make them available to more users in the weeks to come. Prepaid users may check the MyVodafone app or telephone the customer care to assess if these offers are available to them.

The operator has been in overdrive mode over the couple of weeks, as it announced a Rs. 38 pack with 100 minutes of STD and local calls and 100MB of information each day ago, and launched data rollover facility for postpaid users past week.
