Ever since the launch of Reliance Jio, rival telecom operators are trying to stay relevant with better data and call offers. In such a competitive environment, there is a new recharge plan every other day.
Bharti Airtel and Vodafone India recently launched Rs 199 and Rs 199 recharge plans to counter Jio’s 149 plan. These recharge packs offer everything from unlimited voice calling to high-speed internet data. In such a situation, customers have a hard time choosing the right plan. We have compiled a list of best tariff plans under Rs 200.
Airtel Rs 149 and Airtel Rs 199
Airtel’s cheapest data & calls plan go for Rs 149. The recharge gives users 300MB of data along with unlimited local and STD Airtel mobile calls for 28 days. However, the catch here is only 4G handset users will get 300MB data, while other handset users can avail only 50MB data.
Coming to Airtel’s Rs 199 plan, it offers unlimited local plus STD calls along with 1GB 4G/3G/2G data with a validity of 28 days. The data is 1GB for the whole period instead of per day. You’ll also get unlimited local and national SMS benefit. However, during travel customers will be charged for roaming outgoing though they will receive unlimited roaming incoming calls.
Vodafone Rs 199
Vodafone’s Rs 199 recharge offers comes with 1GB 3G/4G data along with unlimited local and STD calls. However, there is a limit on free calls. A customer gets to make 250 minutes of free calls on a single day and in total 1000 minutes of call in a week. Beyond this limit, Vodafone will charge 30 paise per minute for the day. This is basically to limit the commercial usage of the connection.
Reliance Jio Rs 149
Jio’s best unlimited calls+data offering start for Rs 149. Under the new recharge plan, Reliance offers 4.2GB of high-speed data with a daily limit of 0.15GB with the validity of 28 days. After exhausting the daily limit, customers still get data but a reduced speed of 64 kbps. Within the offer is unlimited local, STD and roaming calls across all networks.
In addition, there is a provision for 300 local, STD and roaming SMS. Users using Jio app get free access to Jio Cinema, Jio Music and My Jio. Jio’s recharge plan is the best deal and still giving the rivals Airtel and Vodafone run for their money.
Idea Cellular 197
Idea Cellular too is following in step of Airtel to offer 1GB data daily for 28 days. The recharge is valid for a period of 28 days. However, there is no calling option bundled with this scheme.
And for users looking for a voice calling and data plan, the company has a Rs 198 tariff plan (price of the plan varies with the circle) that gives 1GB 4G/3G/2G data and unlimited local & STD voice calls for 28 days.
BSNL Rs 186
Under its new plan voucher priced at Rs 186, BSNL is offering 1GB daily data for first 28 days. Also bundled with the plan is unlimited on-net and off-net voice calls, both local and STD. Although, the plan carries a validity of 180 days bit data is limited to first 28 days only.
What makes this plan from BSNL better than other private telecom operators is that the operator recently modified it to offer unlimited outgoing roaming calls as well.
