Vodafone India has started offering a Rs 119 prepaid plan to its prepaid customers in various circles. The Rs 119 prepaid recharge is valid only to select users at the moment, but it’s expected to be available as an open market plan in the coming days.

On the flip side, the Rs 169 prepaid recharge comes with unlimited calling, 1GB of 2G/3G/4G data and 100 SMS per day for 28 days. The validity of the Rs 119 plan also offers benefits for 28 days.
Vodafone Rs 119 Prepaid Plan Launched: Benefits and Details
Vodafone has introduced this prepaid plan as a segmented one, meaning it’s only valid to select users at the moment. As of now, it’s available only in the telco’s 4G circles. On the brighter side, Idea Cellular is also offering a similar plan of Rs 119 in its key circles such as Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, Kerala among others. As for the benefits, users will get unlimited calling and 1GB of data valid for 28 days.

Vodafone Rs 169 Prepaid Plan Benefits in Detail
As mentioned above, Vodafone also has a Rs 169 prepaid plan which offers benefits similar to the Rs 119 prepaid plan. Vodafone has matched Bharti Airtel with the benefits of the Rs 169 plan. Vodafone is providing unlimited voice calling with the Rs 169 prepaid plan.
Coming to the data benefit, Vodafone is providing 1GB of data for 28 days, and it’s not 1GB daily data. So you’ll have to settle down with 1GB data for the entire 28 days validity. Lastly, users will also get 100 SMS per day benefit. That said, Vodafone used to offer Rs 159 prepaid plan earlier and the same has been modified to Rs 169.
The plan is valid for 28 days from the date of recharge and it’s valid in all the circles. We have the plan’s availability in Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, Karnataka, Chennai and other telecom circles as well.
