Vodafone Idea new offer. The company is offering 2GB daily high-speed data and unlimited voice calling benefits to select users at no additional cost. The new offer is available with a validity of seven days. However, the eligibility criteria for the benefits are still unclear.
Vodafone Idea introduced the new offer just days after it brought a double data offer to the Rs. 299, Rs. 449, and Rs. 699 prepaid recharge plans. It is also amongst the operators that have extended incoming call benefits during the coronavirus-focussed lockdown that is in place until May 3.
Users on Twitter reported the arrival of the additional 2GB high-speed data and unlimited voice calling benefits. These are in place daily for seven days.
Vodafone Idea is not charging customers for the new data allocation and voice calling benefits, and bundled data allocation is available over and above the existing data quota.
The additional high-speed data and voice calling benefits aren’t available to all Vodafone Idea users. However, it seems that the offer is arriving to select users gradually.
How to check eligibility
You can check the eligibility of the additional data and voice calling benefits on your Vodafone or Idea connection by dialling 121363. If you’re eligible, you’ll get an SMS message confirming the update. You’ll, otherwise, hear a voice message saying that you aren’t eligible for the offer.
The SMS message confirming the new offer says that the provision is available to users as a “special gift” to overcome the lockdown blues.
The additional 2GB high-speed daily data and unlimited calls’ offer is available in various circles, including Chennai, Kolkata, New Delhi, Punjab, and Uttar Pradesh, reports technology and telecom blog PriceBaba. However, the offer is only for selected users, which means that it won’t be available to all users in the eligible circles.
A move similar to Jio’s additional data offer
Vodafone Idea’s offer comes just after Jio started offering free 2GB daily high-speed data benefit to its users. The Mumbai-based operator, however, has provided the identical data offering with four days of validity.
