Vodafone’s Rs 199 prepaid plan launched in December 2019 has also been revised to offer more validity. The Rs 199 plan before the tariff hike used to offer 1.5 GB data per day for 28 days. This plan was brought back and offered 1 GB of data per day and 100 local/national SMS per day for 21 days. The plan has now been revised to offer 24 days of validity with 3 days validity being added to the pack.
Vodafone’s Rs 129 prepaid plan launched in December 2019 has also been revised to offer more validity.

The UP West plan listing, however, shows the new validity of Rs 129 plan and Rs 199 plan as 28 days. In other circles, the validity is only 24 days. The detailed info however currently lists the old validity of 14 days and 21 days respectively. It is not clear currently if the plan details are correct or not.
