Not worthy plans. Idea is making people to buy their costly plans through handset offers. Who will wait for 18 months for cash back.



I can give iPhone X for effective price of just Rs2000 and there is NO recharge condition as well.

Just pay Rs22 Lakhs and get iPhone X 64GB version. After 18 months, I will give back Rs1 Lakh and will give Rs20,98,000 after just 20000 years. So effectively, you get iPhone X for Rs2000.

Limited period offer, if you return the iPhone X after 20000 years, you will get remaining FULL Rs21 Lakh. So effectively you get iPhone X to use FREE for 20000 years.
