Take a Look at Idea Cellular’s Postpaid Data Carry Forward Plans in Kolkata, Assam, and West Bengal

Idea Cellular, back in 2015 unveiled the revolutionary ‘3G Roll Over’ feature for its postpaid subscribers. But the feature didn't receive much attention from the consumers. Recently, Bharti Airtel also announced a similar scheme for its postpaid subscribers. Idea Cellular's ‘3G Roll Over’ feature is now live only in some circles. As per our research, these carry forward plans are valid in Assam, Kolkata, and West Bengal at the moment.

Idea Cellular

The company has listed 9 carry forward data plans ranging from Rs. 100 to Rs. 1250. These plans have to be activated on top of the existing postpaid plan, unlike the Airtel's data roll over the scheme.

These packs start at Rs. 100 and goes all the way up to Rs. 1250 offers a maximum of 10GB data. The Rs. 100 pack gives 300MB 3G data, the Rs. 200 pack gives 600MB, and so on. Take a look at the plans below.

The maximum data offered is 10GB with the activation of Rs. 1250 scheme. That said, if you exceed the allotted the data, then you will be charged 1paisa/10KB with Rs. 500 data capping.

Furthermore, if you're unable to complete the entire data offered by the pack, then the remaining data will be added to your next billing cycle, which is the major highlight. Suppose, you've consumed only 4GB out of 10GB after the activation of Rs. 1250 data pack, then the remaining 6GB data will be added to your next billing cycle.


Idea Cellular did not list the maximum data each user can store in their account, like Airtel's 200GB data cap. Furthermore, we don't have info on whether Idea is carrying forward the unused data of the standard postpaid plan, like how Bharti Airtel is doing at the moment.

For the unaware, Bharti Airtel recently announced a new Postpaid Promise scheme, under which the operator is allowing its users to carry forward the unused data from this month to next month. So, if your plan has 10GB of data and you've used just 2GB data, then the remaining 8GB data will be added to your next billing cycle, along with the regular 10GB monthly plan data, making it a total of 18GB.

Interested users of Idea Cellular in the said circles can head over to Idea's official website and can activate the plan with a single tap.
