No, only for RCom currently. RCom has had this offer for at least one month, so I don’t know why the news is on today only.

You basically sign up at the website, get the app, then you are charged a fixed rate of Rs. 15 for every 10 days and you can then download and play the games for free.

The data used for downloading the game is deducted from existing data balance. If no balance then rates as per your tariff plan. If downloading via Wi-Fi then as per service provider.
