Vodafone India Tuesday launched a new national roaming plan for its pre-paid customers. With this plan, Vodafone pre-paid customers will be able to receive incoming calls while roaming on Vodafone network at 30 paise per minute, across the country. Outgoing call rates are 1.5 paise per sec for all local & STD calls, while roaming or at home.
The price point for the new national roaming plan varies from state to state and ranges between Rs 26 to Rs 47. For example, in Delhi, there are two price points - Rs 21 and Rs 42.
With the new plan, Vodafone aims to capitalise on the upcoming holiday season where most people will be planning their vacations, and this new roaming plan will let the vacationers enjoy better roaming rates. Vodafone notes that plans come with a roaming incoming benefit of 30 days and tariff validity of 180 days. Standard rates will be applicable for SMS, data roaming and ISD roaming.
Standard national roaming tariff for pre-paid customers in Delhi is 1 rupee per minute for all incoming and local outgoing calls, and 1.5 rupees per minute for outgoing STD calls. An existing special recharge of Rs. 24 gives customers free incoming calls while roaming in Bihar, with outgoing calls (both local and STD) at 1.5 paise per sec.
Commenting on the initiative, Vivek Mathur, Chief Commercial Officer, Vodafone India said, "Vodafone has always been a pioneer, when it comes to enabling customers to enjoy a superior connectivity experience at affordable rates. We are pleased to present this new scheme, empowering our pre-paid customers with better value in terms of tariff and location options. The new national roaming plan has been specially created for those who tend to travel a lot on a regular basis. They can now talk more without worrying about high roaming costs."
These new roaming plans for pre-paid customers are presently available in all Vodafone circles, except Himachal Pradesh, Odisha and J&K.
