Idea Cellular has taken on Reliance Jio’s Prime membership offers by revising some of its tariff plans. Idea Cellular, for its prepaid subscribers, has provided some added benefits in the Rs 348 plan. The network provider, is now offering unlimited voice calling feature across India, along with the 1GB 4G data usage per day. The plan can be availed by users with 4G enable mobile phones. Interestingly, there is another value pack which is available at Rs 348 and it is offering free calls across all networks in India alongside 50MB of data. The same tariff plan provides its users with 1 GB of data along with the voice benefit. The plan will be valid for 28 days. Earlier, the company was providing only 0.5 GB data per day. The move by Idea was taken keeping low internet users in mind.

Meanwhile, there is another free voice calling and data plan, priced much lower at Rs 148. If Idea subscribers recharge with Rs 148, they will be able to make free Local and STD calls on the same network anywhere in India and also get 50MB of data. Users who have 4G mobile phones will get 300 MB of data alongside the voice calling benefits.
