Vi (Vodafone Idea) has introduced a new affordable ₹99 plan which comes with a validity of 28 days. The plan comes with a total of 200MB 4G data and calling includes a talk time of ₹99. Calls will be charged 2.5 paise per second. This is not an unlimited plan so there won’t be unlimited calling or 100 SMS on a daily basis. The ₹99 plan is available on the Vi website and the Vi app.
Along with that, Vi has also opened some Vi stores for rural customers known as ‘Digi Shops’. Vi has opened almost 1,100 shops in 18 states. It is a new concept for a one-stop service point in tier 3 towns for its prepaid users. It will not only help Vi get closer to rural consumers but Vi is hoping it will increase visits to retail stores as well.

“Catering to the affordability of consumers, Vi continues to take measures to offer the best in class mobile services at the most attractive price points. We invite mobile users and non-users to join the high-speed Vi network at just Rs. 99 and continue enjoying the benefits of mobile connectivity in the digital era. This will not just drive inclusivity but also enable more users to enter the digital bandwagon.“ said a Vodafone spokesperson on the launch of the plan.
Vi also claims that it is, “the only pan-India, high-speed data network which is offering essential mobile connectivity with both voice and data services to consumers at this price point.” Currently, none of the rival telecom operators like Jio and Airtel offers a plan like this.
