- Vodafone Idea's Rs 24 prepaid plan is valid across the country
- The newly merged telco introduced minimum recharge scheme for prepaid customers last year
Back in October, the private telecom operators introduced the minimum recharge plans which replaced the long-existing talk time plans in these telcos’ portfolios. The minimum recharge plans for Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea all start at a minimum of Rs 35 which gets the users a validity extension along with some marginal calling and data benefits. However, now Vodafone Idea has introduced a new minimum recharge plan of Rs 24 which will extend the validity for Vodafone India and Idea Cellular subscribers by 28 days but will not ship any data or calling benefit. Apart from these two plans, Vodafone Idea also offers Rs 65, Rs 95, Rs 145 and Rs 245 minimum recharge plans. Bharti Airtel is also providing a Rs 23 minimum recharge prepaid plan, and now, Vodafone Idea has joined the list.
