Just a while ago, Idea cellular came up with Rs 555 first recharge tariff plan for its new customers. However, this offer is valid only in selected circles. Following Idea cellular, Vodafone India came up with an identical plan. Vodafone India in infrastructure agreement with Idea cellular is also offering the same Rs 555 first recharge tariff plan for its new subscribers.
This Rs 555 plan is valid for all service users (2G/3G/4G) with the same benefits. Since it is a first-time recharge plan, so it will be valid for all customers switching to Vodafone India with the same number using Mobile Number Portability(MNP). This plan is also valid for new Vodafone customers.
This Rs 555 first recharge plan offers a combo deal. It provides 1GB of internet usage per day with a validity of 84 days. Thus totalling to 84 GB of 2G/3G/4G data. On the voice benefits front, it offers unlimited local and national roaming voice calls with the same validity of 84 days. As per SMS benefits are concerned, it offers the pretty standard 100 SMS per day plan for 84 days.
However, Vodafone India has placed some capping on the voice calls. A customer can make voice calls only up to 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week. After the exhaustion of these capped minutes, the customer will be charged at Rs 1 paisa per second. Similarly, post 100 SMS on a single day, each SMS will cost Rs 1 and STD SMS will make the customer pay Rs 1.5. On the data front, post 1 GB per day, the customer will have to pay Rs 50 paisa per MB.
Another notable thing is that this plan is valid only in the Karnataka circle as of now. There is no word on when the customers of all the other circles of India will also get this offer. This plan of Rs 555 is the same plan announced by Idea cellular last week. The Idea plan also offers 1 GB of data per day with unlimited local and national roaming voice calls. The SMS benefits are also similar offering 100 SMS per day. However, Idea customers get an additional free subscription to Idea’s Digital suite apps. The validity of Idea Cellular’s plan is also similar to that of Vodafone India’s Rs 555 first recharge plan with 84 days for all the offers.
Idea Cellular’s Rs 555 first recharge tariff plan is valid only in selected circles of India as of now. These circles include Andhra Pradesh, Gujrat, Rajasthan And UP west with no word on the availability of the plan for the other circles.
These first recharge plans are an excellent value for money plans for subscribers who are in trouble after Telenor left India. Also, Reliance’s withdrawal on some of its services has left lots of concern for its customers. For this majority of people, these first recharge plans will help them to make the switch easier.
