New Delhi: Idea Cellular Ltd, the leading cellular services provider in India, has unveiled its new postpaid and prepaid tariff plans for their consumers of Delhi/NCR.

As a part of the revised tariffs, Idea Cellular has reduced the airtime tariff by a whopping 43 per cent on postpaid. For the prepaid customers, the proposition just got better — customers can now enjoy an outgoing airtime rate as low as Rs 2 per minute which is 16 per cent lower than any other prepaid offering in the market.

Says Idea Cellular chief operating officer Himanshu Kapania: “Our superior technology and infrastructure gave us an edge when we entered the Delhi market as the fourth cellular operator. Now, it is the same technology and infrastructure that has enabled us to offer highly innovative, competitive and customer friendly tariff plans for both postpaid and prepaid customers on Delhi’s only ‘congestion-free’ network.”

In addition to the affordable new tariffs, Idea Cellular customers continue to enjoy exclusive Idea innovative products on both prepaid and postpaid.
