In a bid to take on Reliance Jio, Vodafone has launched new plans which will offer the same benefits as JioPrime. As part of the ‘Welcome Back Offers’, the telecom major will offer two new plans of Rs 342 and Rs 346. Sanjay Bafna first broke the news of Vodafone’s ‘Welcome Back Offers’ on Twitter and posted about the new plan. However, the telco has now confirmed to Indianexpress.com regarding its new plans.
The Rs 342 offers unlimited calling along with 28GB of data per month along with FUP of 1GB per day. The Rs. 346 plan will offer unlimited calling with just 10GB of data for 28 days, allowing users to make voice calls up to 300 minutes per day , which will be charged at standard rates, post the limit.
“Vodafone customers are diverse as are their wants. To satisfy these diverse needs and wants, Vodafone offers various segmented propositions. This is one such segmented offering and the offer is valid only till 15 March”, the company said in a statement to Indianexpress.com.
