It seems that Idea is here again with its latest plan to counter Jio. Idea Cellular has apparently revamped one of its prepaid plans in lieu to provide more data to its subscribers. This latest recharge pack worth ₹199 is offering 2GB of data per day to Idea’s prepaid users. Earlier the plan provided 1.4GB of daily data, alongside other benefits. With this latest revamped plan, Idea is directly taking on Reliance Jio and its prepaid plan worth ₹198. Also, it is worth noting that the revamped plan is said to be available only to select users in some regions.

Talking more of this ₹199 plan, Idea is providing a total of 56GB of data instead of the 39.4GB that the recharge pack provided earlier. As mentioned, Idea prepaid subscribers are entitled to get 2GB of data per day and the plan comes with a validity period of 28 days. Apart from the data benefits, subscribers would reportedly also be provided with all the offers that were attached to the previous plan.


Idea users to avail the ₹199 plan, are said to get unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS messages per day for the entire validity period. Notably, the voice calls also arrive with a FUP limit of 250 minutes per day and 1,000 minutes per week. Once the limit is exhausted, users will be charged from the main balance. As the report mentions, the above plan can only be availed by select Idea prepaid subscribers, thus for the rest, everyone else would get the 1.4GB daily data benefit for 28 days. Notably, Idea is providing cashbacks and prizes to its prepaid users on select recharges including the ₹199 plan.

When comparing with the offers from rival telcos, Reliance Jio has a prepaid plan worth ₹198 in its lineup that provides 2GB of data per day. Under this plan, Jio is currently offering the data benefit for a validity period of 28 days. Voice calling is included free in the recharge pack, and users could avail up to 100 SMS messages per day and a free subscription to the company’s proprietary apps. Also, Jio offers free caller tunes with every recharge pack.
