Both Vodafone and Idea Cellular have a prepaid plan priced at Rs 1,499, which offers unlimited local and national calling, unlimited SMS (daily cap of 100 SMS), and 1GB daily 2G/3G/4G data. Once the daily limit is hit, Vodafone users can continue with high-speed internet downloads at 50 paise per MB.

Idea Cellular, on the other hand, charges 4 paise per 10KB (Rs 4/MB) for existing users, and 0.5 paise per 10KB for new users. Also, local SMS will be charged at Re 1 per message, and Rs 1.5 for national, on Idea network.

BSNL yearly prepaid plans

State-run telco, BSNL, has three annual prepaid plans. The first one is priced at Rs 1,312, and it comes with unlimited local and STD calls during the validity period to any network across India (except for those in Mumbai and Delhi). The plan also offers PRBT (personalized ring back tones), 1,000 free SMS and 5GB 2G / 3G data that can be consumed through the validity. The plan is only available in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana circles.

The other two plans are priced at Rs 1,699 and Rs 2,099, both offering unlimited local and national calling without any FUP, 100 free SMS daily and free PRBT. The only thing changing in these two plans is the data benefit. The Rs 1,699 plan offers 2GB daily 2G/3G data, whereas the Rs 2,099 plan offers daily 4GB data, and after the daily limit is hit, speed is throttled down to 80Kbps.
