With the entry of Reliance Jio into the 4G market since last year, price wars have been going on for long now. Airtel is the biggest telecom operator in India and has been frequently changing its tariff plans in response to Reliance Jio’s disruptive pricing. Ultimately this benefits the customers who get more data, calls and value-added services at lower rates.


Lately, Airtel and Vodafone have yet again revamped their prepaid plans in order to lure customers away from Jio. Below we have compiled an updated list of the best 4G prepaid tariff plans from all operators in November 2017.

The reduction invalidity of the plan by 14 days has been compensated with unlimited calling even on roaming. So if you travel frequently, you need not worry about the roaming charges. Besides the plan also offers 100 free SMS per day. This offer is currently applicable on all 4G and 3G handsets.

Idea Cellular Rs. 357 Plan

The recharge plan gives customers 1GB per day, unlimited calls and 100 SMSes per day, with a validity of 28 days. The plan, however, offers validity for mere 28 days which leaves Idea users with not many options.

Vodafone Rs. 509 Plan

Keeping in line with its competitors, Vodafone has come with two new plans of Rs. 458 and Rs. 509. While the price of Rs. 509 is technically a little bit over 500 we have still added it to the list as best and on par with Jio’s plan.

Vodafone’s 509 prepaid plan gives the users 84 days validity of using 1GB data per day along with unlimited voice calls, includes both local and STD and those made on roaming inside India.
