Idea Offers 'Unlimited' Calls, 1GB Data for 14 Days at Rs. 109

Reliance Jio, Airtel, Idea and Vodafone are key players in the Indian telecom market, and millions of subscribers look to them for great deals on lucrative prepaid plans.

In the same region, Idea Cellular offers other prepaid plans such as Rs. 199 plan offering unlimited voice calls and 1.4GB data per day for 28 days, Rs. 398 plan offering 1GB data per day and unlimited voice calls for 70 days and Rs. 449 and Rs. 509 plans offering 1.4GB data per day and unlimited voice calls for 82 days and 90 days respectively. Idea's all-new Rs 109 prepaid recharge plan offers 1GB of 2G/3G/4G data for a period of 14 days. The other benefits such as unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS per day remain the same. This increase in validity was announced to compete with Reliance Jio's Rs 98 plan that offered unlimited calls, SMSs and 2GB of data with 28 days validity. The plan is valid for 28 days from the date of recharge. A TelecomTalk report citing a retailer in the region has come up with the details of these new plans. The pack also includes 100 SMSes per day.

OSCR reminds trustees of legal duties in wake of Oxfam scandal
Oxfam said on Thursday it hired another man to work in Ethiopia a few months after he had been dismissed for misconduct in Haiti. Oxfam officials in Haiti were not immediately available for comment during the country's carnival holiday.

As India's older carriers slammed the telecom regulator for its regulations over the last 12-18 months which allegedly favour only new entrant Reliance Jio, the Mukesh Ambani-led telco called the "campaign" run by the incumbent operators as malicious, misleading and derogatory. The voice calls in this pack are limited to 250 minutes per day and 1,000 minutes per week. Idea's all-new Rs 109 plan comes days after the launch of Rs 93 prepaid recharge plan. For 14 days there are unlimited calls and 1GB Data with 100 Free SMS.

Vodafone doesn't offer a bouquet of low-priced prepaid plans like its rivals. Beyond this limit, subscribers are charged 1 paisa per second for voice calls. Idea Cellular is also offering 1GB 3G/4G data.
