Reliance Jio effect: Vodafone launches Rs 458, Rs 509 plans with unlimited calling, 1GB data per day

Keeping up with its competitors, Vodafone has launched two new plans for its prepaid users, which compete with similarly priced plans from Reliance Jio. Talking about Vodafone’s plans first, the telecom operator has launched a Rs 458 and a Rs 509 plan, both of which offer unlimited local and STD calls, free roaming, 100 SMS per day, and 1GB of 4G / 3G data every day. The only difference between the two being the validity. While the Rs 458 plan is valid for 70 days, the Rs 509 plan comes with a validity of 84 days. However, every plan has a catch, and so does this one. While the plan has “unlimited” calling, that privilege comes with a limit of 250 minutes


Reliance Communications said it would shut down voice call service from December 1.

Telecom service provider Vodafone said Reliance Communications customers can use its network for facilitating port-out requests. Recently, Reliance Communications said it would shut down voice call service from December 1 and its customers could move to other networks by this year end, as per directions by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI).

Vodafone said in a statement that the initiative was being done to facilitate porting out and ease connectivity for customers facing network shutdown.

“We at Vodafone always try to offer maximum value to our customers in terms of service, network and price”, Vodafone India, Tamil Nadu - Business Head, S Murali said. “In line with this endeavour, we are very pleased to extend our value for money propositions for all customers in Tamil Nadu, facing network shutdown”, he said.
