Idea Cellular Intros Rs 509 Open Market Plan With 1GB Data Per Day, Unlimited Voice Calls for 84 Days

Telecom operator Idea Cellular introduced today made the Rs 509 plan as an open market one, following Bharti Airtel. This plan from Airtel is also focussed on driving customers from choosing Jio’s Rs 459 plan. Both Airtel and Idea have been trying hard to keep customers away from picking Reliance Jio’s network by introducing equally affordable tariff plans.


Idea’s Rs 509 plan also offers similar benefits as Reliance Jio’s Rs 459 plan and Airtel Rs 509 tariff plan. Idea customers recharging with the Rs 509 plan will get unlimited voice calls including roaming calls, 100 SMS per day, and daily 1GB 2G/3G/4G data for a period of 84 days. In addition, if a customer recharges via MyIdea app or website, he will get additional 1GB data under the Idea complimentary offer. The additional 1GB data will also be valid for 84 days, which can be used on top of daily 1GB data.

The best part of the plan is it’s an open market one, and any Idea prepaid customer with a 2G/3G/4G handset can recharge this plan. Besides the Rs 509 tariff plan, there’s another plan of Rs 449, and it’s also an open market plan. The Rs 449 plan also gives the same benefits, but the validity of the plan is just 70 days. And lastly, we have another Rs 309 plan that also provides the same benefits for 28 days.

Just yesterday, Airtel introduced a Rs 509 open market tariff plan that gives the same benefits of 1GB data per day, unlimited voice calls including roaming calls, 100 SMS per day for 84 days. With these tariff plans, both the companies are competing against Reliance Jio. Vodafone India also has a similar plan of Rs 509 in some circles, which also gives the same benefits for 84 days.

Lastly, we have state-run telecom operator, BSNL who recently reduced the validity of its Rs 485 tariff plan that provides same benefits of 1GB data per day, unlimited roaming voice calls, and 100 SMS per day.

Almost all the operators are offering the same benefits, but which operator will you prefer? Let us know by commenting below.
