Top mobile phone prepaid plans

Choosing the right base plan can result in big savings over the months. Here are the best plans from Vodafone, Airtel, Idea, Reliance and Docomo in four major metros.

Why cut short your calls when you could simply lower your expenses by picking the right plan? It’s quite possible you haven’t paid much attention to the plan you have, or assume all plans are the same. Well, they aren’t. For every good plan, there are others which can keep your calling rates high or shoot up your initial subscription charges. Here are some examples of bad plans:

Service provider Plan name Where? Cost Calls Local SMS STD calls
Airtel Special tariff voucher Mumbai Rs195 90p/min Re1 90p/min
Vodafone Base plan Chennai Rs18 Rs1.2/min Re1 Rs1.2/min
Airtel RTP – FR Delhi Rs194 90p/min Re1 90p/min
Idea PV 231 Bangalore Rs231 Re1/min Re1 Rs1.5/min
Reliance Plan voucher FRC Chennai Rs43 Rs1.2/min Re1 Rs1.5/min

If you’re on one of them, you certainly need to change to one of the plans below. Once you’ve done this, also consider how you can further reduce your bill with a rate-cutter. Plans are for Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai only. They may differ marginally in other circles.
