Reliance Jio s arrival has completely transformed the landscape of the Indian telecom sector. Jio s hugely-competitive tariffs have forced rival telecom operators to completely rework their offerings, lest they lose customers. With telcos continuing to make their tariff plans even more lucrative, Vodafone India has added three new plans to its prepaid portfolio, with each offering 1.5GB of data per day. Priced at Rs 209, Rs 479 and Rs 529, these plans have a validity of 28 days, 84 days and 90 days, respectively.
