Idea Cellular Revises Rs 199, Rs 449 and Rs 509 Prepaid Tariff Plans With 1.4GB Data Per Day On Offer

This is very much predicted. Idea Cellular, the third largest Indian telecom operator, has revised its unlimited prepaid combo plans today. Much like Airtel, Idea also revised three prepaid tariff plans- Rs 199, Rs 449, and Rs 509, and all the three plans now offer 1.4GB data per day, up from the earlier 1GB data per day offering. Alongside the data benefit, these three plans also offer unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS per day.


Idea’s Rs 199 prepaid tariff plan is valid for 28 days, and with 1.4GB data per day offering, the overall data benefit becomes 39GB. And the Rs 449 prepaid tariff plan comes with a validity of 82 days, offering a whopping 114GB of data. Finally, the Rs 509 plan offers benefits for 90 days, which takes the overall data benefit to 126GB. These three plans earlier used to offer 1GB data per day.

Sadly, Idea Cellular did not revise the Rs 357 tariff plan though, and it still gives 2GB data per day for 28 days. In contrast, Airtel revised its Rs 349 tariff plan which now offers 2.5GB data per day for 28 days. Also, Idea did not modify the Rs 309 plan too, which still offers 1GB data per day for 70 days.

Like Airtel, Idea’s prepaid tariff plans are yet to go official in many circles. As of this writing, we can confirm the plans availability in Chennai, Tamil Nadu circles. Having said that, we’re expecting Idea Cellular to roll out the plans in other circles by the end of tomorrow.


It all started with Reliance Jio which revised the tariff plans earlier this month and introduced 1GB per day and 1.5GB data per plans. Following Jio, Airtel also revised the Rs 199, Rs 349, Rs 448, and Rs 509 tariff plans a couple of days. Then Jio again followed the suit and introduced Jio Republic Day Offers yesterday. And now, Idea Cellular followed Airtel and Jio, but Idea’s offerings are on-par with Airtel’s and not Jio’s new prepaid plans.

Furthermore, Idea is also offering additional 1GB of free data for customers recharging through MyIdea application or website. But Airtel is not providing any benefit as such. After this development from Idea, Vodafone India is the only telecom operator left out to revise the tariff plans, and it may happen today itself.

No operator (including Jio/Idea) retrospectively change benefits. Imagine if the pack was changed to give less data. Then, would you be Ok getting less data *after* recharging?

Till now they gives 2g service in our residential area. They are unwilling to listen our words. So, for the customers like me, all the offers are meaningless. As per experience, Jio’s tariffs are the best and they are improving day by day.
