Vi (Vodafone Idea) is offering 50GB additional data with its annual Rs 1,499 plan for prepaid subscribers. The annual plan offers 24GB data normally, but the company has increased the benefits of the plan by offering additional data that brings the total to 74GB. The data pack is available to purchase from the Vi app along with the new benefits.
The additional benefits with the annual plan were first spotted by OnlyTech with an additional 50GB data. The offer is also appearing as a pop-up message in the app and Vi is also sending text messages to inform its prepaid user base about the offer. Having said that, some users have also reported not receiving the additional benefits after recharging the annual plan. It is likely that the plan is only being offered to select users in circles for now.
