Idea Cellular Introduces Validity Accumulation Feature; Buy Recharges Now and Store them to Use Later

Remember the vouchers concept Reliance Jio introduced a few months ago which allows you to recharge with a plan now to use them later? Well, Idea Cellular has now come up with a similar feature called ‘Validity Accumulation.’ With this feature, Idea Cellular customers can recharge a long-validity plan now, which can be activated at a later date to enjoy the same benefits.

Idea Vouchers

We all know that Idea Cellular has an open market plan of Rs 398, which gives users 1GB data per day, unlimited voice calls including roaming calls, and 100 SMS per day. This plan is valid for 70 days from the date of recharge.

Here’s how the new Validity Accumulation feature works. Idea Cellular is allowing users to recharge the same Rs 398 plan for multiple times. For example, if you recharge with the Rs 398 plan for two times, you will get benefits for 140 days. Likewise, if you recharge the plan for three times at the same time, you will get the benefits for 210 days. By this way, you can recharge the same plan right now and enjoy the benefits at a later date.

Currently, it is unknown on how many times a customer can recharge the plan at one go, and store the recharges in his account. Reliance Jio also introduced the same feature as ‘My Vouchers,’ which allows the customer to recharge a plan of any denomination multiple times and store it in his account. A customer has to manually activate the plan by heading over to MyJio application once their current recharge plan expires.

Do make a note that the recharge value remains the same irrespective of how many times you’re recharging the same plan. For example, if you recharge the Rs 398 tariff plan twice, you will be charged Rs 796, and if you recharge the same thrice, you will be charged Rs 1194.

This is a great feature to have around, especially with telecom operators changing the plans every now and then. Other telecom operators such as Bharti Airtel and Vodafone India should also come up with the same feature.

One doubt. About JIO s queue system.

Suppose, Rs
459 plan is currently working on my number. And one more 459 or 509 plan is in queue.
now if I activate that another plan 459/509 (which is in queue) , what will happen to my existing 459 plan??
Will it deactivated or will it suspended?? And after expirynof new 359/509 plan, will it resume???

Hey, I have not tried the way you enquired. But as far as my experience goes when you active two packs at a time both packs go hand in hand and you will get 1. Pack 1 data benefit + pack 2 data benefit 2. As a customer you will loose voice benefit from one pack coz, voice is ul on the first pack. Also you will loose 100sms/day benefit. So only advantage you get is extra data. Regarding validity, Suppose say one pack has 5 days validity and the other pack has 10 days validity, you will enjoy 2GB/day… Read more »
