Vodafone India has silently introduced a new prepaid tariff plan of Rs 159, taking on Jio’s Rs 149 and Airtel’s Rs 149 prepaid plans. This new plan from Vodafone is valid across the telco’s 4G circles and the best part is it has been introduced as an open market plan, not for select users. However, Vodafone is not offering as good benefits as Jio’s Rs 149 plan, but it matches Airtel in the data benefit though. Vodafone’s all-new Rs 159 plan gives a user 28GB of 3G/4G data, unlimited voice calling and 100 SMS per day for a month. On the other hand, Jio is giving 1.5GB of daily data along with unlimited voice calling without any FUP limit and 100 SMS per day for the same validity period.
Vodafone Rs 159 Prepaid Plan Benefits in Detail
As mentioned above, Vodafone has matched Bharti Airtel with the benefits of the Rs 159 plan. India’ second largest telco is giving unlimited voice calling with a cap of 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week. Furthermore, Vodafone is also capping the voice calls to 100 unique numbers during the entire validity period.
Coming to the data benefit, Vodafone is providing 1GB of data per day for 28 days, which makes it 28GB of data benefit for the entire validity. Lastly, users will also get 100 SMS per day benefit, but the SMS benefit varies with every circle. In some circles, Vodafone is offering 100 SMS per day, while in some circles, it’s giving 100 SMS for the plan validity period and in some circles, it’s not providing any SMS benefits at all.
The plan is valid for 28 days from the date of recharge and it’s an open market plan valid across all the Vodafone 4G circles.

And more importantly, the plan is valid across all the 22 telecom circles in India.
