Idea Cellular Ties Up With Indian RailwayIdea Cellular has partnered with Indian Railways, to promote ‘Break the Language Barrier’ campaign and Idea Language Helpline to help its passengers traveling to other parts of the country.

As part of this program, the Idea Language Helpline is being promoted across Indian Railways network for a week. Idea Language Helpline jingle will play on 139, creating a brand connect with millions of callers who call on this number.

These brochures carry translations of few common words and phrases in 16 different languages and can be useful reference for anybody travelling to a new place in India where a different language is spoken.
