Vodafone has expanded its range of prepaid recharge plans in India by bringing the Rs. 69 plan. The Rs. 69 Vodafone prepaid plan is designed to extend the service validity of your account. However, it comes bundled with data and voice calling minutes. The Rs. 69 prepaid plan by Vodafone also offers free SMS messages in some circles. Similar to what's being provided to Vodafone customers, Vodafone Idea has also included the Rs. 69 prepaid plan to its portfolio for select circles with data, voice calling minutes, and SMS messages.
According to the listing on the Vodafone website, the Rs. 69 prepaid recharge plan offers 150 minutes of local, STD, and roaming voice calls in addition to 250MB of data.

In circles such as Gujarat and Mumbai, the Rs. 69 Vodafone prepaid recharge plan also includes 100 SMS messages. It is listed as the "Combo Recharge" or "All Rounder Pack" on the Vodafone site.

The official Idea Cellular site shows that the plan is available in circles such as Jammu and Kashmir as well as Kerala with 150 voice call minutes, 250MB data, and 100 SMS messages -- along with 28 days validity.
The new offering comes days after Vodafone brought its Rs. 45 prepaid plan with full talk time and a validity of 28 days. The telco also last month introduced the Rs. 59 prepaid sachet plan with 1GB daily data benefits for seven days.
