#1
MUMBAI: Idea Cellular on Sunday announced free incoming calls on domestic roaming and launched aggressive international roaming packs for those traveling abroad.

The offer is another step by incumbent telcos to beat Reliance Jio's aggressive pricing strategy. Few weeks ago, Sunil Mittal's Bharti Airtel 'killed' roaming charges for outgoing and incoming calls as well as SMSes and data usage within India.

"Effective April 1, 2017, Ideas 200 million customers will enjoy free incoming calls while roaming on companys 2G, 3G and 4G network across 400,000 towns and villages in the country. Idea customers will be able to make outgoing calls, SMS freely at affordable rates while roaming anywhere in India," stated Idea Cellular' release.

The facility of free incoming calls on domestic roaming will be extended to both prepaid and postpaid customers, said the firm.

For International travellers, the company said it will offer bundled usage of up to 400 outgoing minutes, 100 SMS per day, large data volume and unlimited incoming calls.

These international roaming packs will also come bundled with free 1GB/2GB/3GB data and overage charges as low as Rs.3 per MB to avoid 'bill shock' to travelling customers, said the Kumar Mangalam Birla owners company in its statement. . Customers can chose 10 day pack for short leisure travel or 30 day packs for continuous business trips or long stay.

Bharti Airtel had stated that their international call rates will be cut by up to 90 % to as low as Rs 3 per minute and data charges by up to 99% to Rs 3 per MB across popular roaming destinations.

For value conscious customers of Idea Cellular , the packs start at Rs. 1,199 for 10 days validity and go up to Rs. 5,999 for 30 days validity, giving up to 85% savings on International Roaming charges.
