Telecom operators are focusing heavily on adding more and more prepaid users by luring them with attractive offerings. However, operators also want to keep their ARPU in check and it comes from their postpaid users itself. To keep up with the competition and to unify its postpaid offerings with Vodafone, Idea Cellular has revised its Nirvana range of postpaid plans to offer double data benefit. In the process, the telco has removed the existing Rs 389 postpaid plan and introduced a new Rs 399 plan with double data benefit. Idea Cellular is shipping a total of 40GB data with its newly launched Rs 399 postpaid plan. Also, the plan comes with data carry forward functionality but a user can accumulate up to 200GB data. In total, Idea Cellular is offering seven postpaid plans of Rs 399, Rs 499, Rs 999, Rs 1,299, Rs 1,699, Rs 1,999 and Rs 2,999. All the plans now comes with Data Carry Forward option.
