Essentially, one can trade-in their old iPhone 4 for a brand new unit of an iPhone 5C at Rs 13,000 discount, which otherwise will vary for other working smartphones.

Under this discount, the 16GB variant of the iPhone 5C will be available for Rs 28,900 than its original price of Rs 41,900. The 32GB model, on the other hand, will cost Rs 40,500 instead of Rs 53,500.
A similar offer is also available for the iPhone 4S 8GB as well. Under this scheme the price of a new iPhone 4S will come down from 31,500 to 18,500 only.
