Vodafone new plan with 184 days validity has been launched in India for a price of Rs.154 only.
As per the news report by BGR, the new plan would provide 600 minutes of local free voice call after which it is priced at 2.5p/sec for local/national calls.
Since it is primarily for Validity pack, it doesn’t provide free 4G data nor free SMS services.
Using of data will be charged at 4p/10KB locally and 10p/10KB while on roaming.
If you want to send SMS text messages, the cost will be at Rs.1/sms ( local ) and Rs.1.5 / National SMS.
The other catch you should be looking at is the timing given for the user to avail free 600minutes of voice call.
Free voice call is available for the user between 23:00 hours to 06:00 hours, ie) From 11PM to 6 AM.

Who is it for ?
If you’re having Vodafone SIM as secondary number, want to just keep it, then those people can recharge for Rs.154 and get 184 days of validity.
Airtel too have announced few SIM validity pack dedicated to those who just want to keep their numbers active.
All this is happening after entry of JIO which totally changed the Mobile Operators business, now instead of having inactive users on their network with no revenue, Airtel , Vodafone wants to charge them so that one can keep the number in active otherwise the number will be deactivated.
