- The talk time recharges from Vodafone now come with carry forward functionality
- Idea Cellular also listed these talk time plans on its website
Last year, Vodafone along with Bharti Airtel removed talk time recharges of several denominations like Rs 50, Rs 100, Rs 500 and so on. Instead of these affordable talk time plans, Vodafone introduced Active Recharges which start at Rs 23 and come with both talk time, data benefits for a minimum validity of 28 days. Bharti Airtel already brought back the Rs 100 and Rs 500 talk time plans to its prepaid subscribers, and now, Vodafone has done the same by relaunching the Rs 50, Rs 100 and Rs 500 talk time plans across the country. Vodafone is already providing talk time recharges such as Rs 10, Rs 1,000 and Rs 5,000, and the new recharges join the existing one. Do make a note that Vodafone is not providing lifetime validity with these plans and it’s limited to just 28 days.
Rs 50, Rs 100 and Rs 500 Vodafone Talk Time Plans Reintroduced
As mentioned above, Vodafone has relaunched the Rs 50, Rs 100 and Rs 500 talk time recharges after a lot of subscribers asking for them. But they don’t come with lifetime validity. For example, the Rs 50 talk time recharge offers Rs 39.37 talk time without any validity, but the outgoing will be restricted after 28 days, meaning you’ll have to perform another recharge on the 29th day. Having said that, the talk time balance left in your account will be carry forwarded to the next recharge.
Next up, we have the Rs 100 talk time recharge from Vodafone which offers full talk time benefit of Rs 100, and this one also comes with a validity of 28 days. Lastly, we have the Rs 500 talk time voucher, and this one comes with a validity of 84 days. Also, these plans offer the same validity as the validity of your current recharge plan or the original validity depending on whichever is higher. For example, if you have a recharge pack that comes with a validity of 70 days and on the same day you top up your account with the Rs 50 top-up recharge, then the validity of the Rs 50 talk time balance will be 70 days instead of just 28 days. This means that consumers won’t have to worry about their talk time balance going unused in only 28 days. This essentially means that Vodafone is offering talk time plans with a validity and if you don’t use the remaining amount before the expiry, it will be lapsed. The Rs 10, Rs 1,000 and Rs 5,000 talk time plans from Vodafone come with lifetime validity, but the outgoing services will be barred after 28 days from the date of recharge.
It is noteworthy that Vodafone is also offering other plans including Rs 10 talk time offer which ships Rs 7.47 talk time. There is also a talk time recharge of Rs 1,000 which ships full talk time of Rs 1,000 with it. Another high-value recharge pack for Vodafone subscribers is the Rs 5,000 top-up pack which comes with total Rs 5,000 talk time validity.
