Telecom operators in India are on the verge of introducing new tariff plans for the users on the occasion of Eid. Ever since the festive season arrived, telecom operators have come up with their luring plans to attract the customers, like how they do every year. And for the most part, these new plans offer better value than the existing tariff plans.
Following its trend, the state-run telecom operator BSNL launched two new plans for the prepaid users, while Vodafone and Reliance Communications (RCom) unveiled new plans for postpaid subscribers. Idea Cellular also launched new plans in some circles. Here are the top plans announced by all the telecom operators on the eve of Ramzan.
Vodafone Rs. 785 Postpaid Plan
Vodafone says that the Rs. 785 postpaid plan is designed for people who are looking to stay connected all the time. The Ramzan exclusive postpaid plan offers unlimited voice calling including national incoming and outgoing roaming calls and 25GB data per billing cycle at just Rs. 786. Furthermore, Vodafone is also offering flat 50 percent discount on data recharges for customers who have 785 on their mobile number.
This plan is available for Vodafone customers in Assam and North East.
