After Vodafone India came out with Ramzan special plans for its customers, now rival network provider Idea Cellular has also brought new offers to the table. Idea, which had announced a merger with Vodafone, is offering its subscribers 79GB of data for Rs 396. The 70GB free data that Idea Cellular is offering, is for its 3G users for a period of 70 days. Additionally, the company is also offering free local and STD Idea to Idea calling, with a limit of 300 minutes per day and 1,200 minutes per week. After the daily or weekly limit is exhausted by the user, they will be charged at 30 paise per minute. The pack also includes 3000 minutes of local and STD calls on other networks. There is also a 1GB FUP limit on data usage and the user will be charged once the limit for the day is exhausted.

Meanwhile, Vodafone under its new offer was giving out 25GB 4G data to its prepaid users at Rs 786. After the launch of Reliance Jio, there is a surge in price wars in the telecom market, where incumbents have been pushing hard to match the aggressive pricing of Jio. Recently, Vodafone had reportedly launched a new Rs 786 plan for its prepaid users. The Vodafone users subscribing to this pack will get unlimited free local and STD calls on any network and 25GB 4G data with a daily limit of 1GB per day after which user will be charged. This is basically an extension of Vodafone Delight which was announced by the company in March this year and was valid only until March 15.
