  • Vodafone unveils Rs 198 recharge plan to take on Reliance Jio

It feels like year 2016 again and credit goes to Jio for this Deja Vu. To continue doing good business, the company has also introduced a new plan of Rs. 229.

Both the plans will offer unlimited calls, SMSes and access to Jio apps which include music, movie, magazine and newspaper services.

Vodafone has made this plan live in most of the circles. The Rs 299 plan offers 2GB data per day with similar benefits. Please note that this plan is available only for Vodafone prepaid users and comes with 28 days' validity. But Vodafone falls short of Reliance Jio though as the new entrant is offering 1.2GB data per day for the same price. This 229 plan of Vodafone offers same benefits as the 199 plan with an added advantage that users opting for Vodafone 229 plan will get 1GB 4G data per day, 100 Free SMS per day and Unlimited calls. That said, this offer is open to all new Vodafone customers irrespective of which handset they're using.

Vodafone with its two new plans aims to target Jio's Happy New Year offer.

Vodafone's latest plan comes shortly after Reliance Jio announced new Happy New Year 2018 plans for its Prime subscribers.

In 199 plan of Jio, there is 1.2GB data limit, and in plan 299 there is a data limit of 2GB. It also includes 100 free SMS per day.

Airtel has a Rs 199 plan that gives 1GB of 3G/4G data per day for 28 days. The FRC plan of Rs 229 will offer 1GB 4G/3G/2G data per day. Customers on this recharge plan also get unlimited local, STD, roaming incoming and outgoing calls. Well, the Jio plan priced at ₹199 offers 1.2 GB of 4G data per day for 28 days to the customers apart from free voice calls and roaming. This plan also takes on Voda's Rs 198 offer. These plans might be slightly cheaper than Reliance Jio's news plans, but come with less daily data. These packs offers free daily data allowance bundled with unlimited calls, which means user do not have to worry about getting separate talktime packs along with their data recharge.
