Data tariff war among major telecom operators in India continues even after Reliance Jio scaled down its free unlimited data offer introduced in October a year ago and a few more attractive plans.

Under this 179 plan, Idea prepaid customers are offered unlimited local and STD calls along with 1 GB data for 28 days.

Bharti Airtel has announced a new plan for its prepaid users. Check more details of Airtel Rs 448 offer from here below. The plan is valid for 70 days. However, unlike Jio's plans, the voice calls on Airtel's new plan are limited to 300 minutes per day and 1,200 minutes per week.

Idea Cellular rolled out unlimited calling for a recharge value of Rs 179 which also gives subscribers data worth 1GB. Under the Rs 399 plan - accessible just for the prepaid clients - Jio offers 70GB of data for 70 days along with unlimited voice calling and SMSes. Customers can also avail 50 percent discount on the data plan by paying via Airtel Payments Bank. But, there is a limit for Airtel local and STD voice calls. Idea's latest Rs 357 plan offers unlimited local and STD calls, SMSes, and 1GB data per day.
