Idea Has Come Up with "Validity Accumulation" To Challenge Jio's "My Vouchers"

Remember the vouchers concept Reliance Jio introduced a few months ago which allows you to recharge with a plan now to use them later?

Here's how the new Validity Accumulation feature works. Well, Idea Cellular has now come up with a similar feature called 'Validity Accumulation.' With this feature, Idea Cellular customers can recharge a long-validity plan now, which can be activated at a later date to enjoy the same benefits.

With the Validity Accumulation feature, Idea subscribers can now recharge a long-validity pack that can be activated at a later date, as reports TelecomTalk. Under this plan, users will get 1GB of data per day along with unlimited calls and free national roaming.

In May, Reliance Jio took the odd step in the Indian telecom sector and launched "My Vouchers" as a built-in feature on its MyJio app to help subscribers receive the benefits for an existing offer even at a later date by recharging for the same offer for multiple times. This means that if the user is opting for Rs. 398 pack twice, then the subscribers can utilize this pack for 70 additional days, thereby benefiting the users with 140 days. Similarly, if a user recharges for three times, he/she will get a validity of 210 days.

However, it is not known at the moment how many recharge a customer can perform at the same time to increase the validity. However, it is unclear of how many times can you purchase it.

The Nirvana plans allow subscribers of the Rs 1,699 plan and above to accumulate maximum data of 500GB, while customers with Nirvana plans of Rs 1,299 and below can accumulate 200GB on their accounts. The company has brought together 8 plans under this offer. All the plans offer unlimited local/STD calling, 100 SMS per day, free worldwide roaming, Idea anti-theft, antivirus and damage protection plan for up 12 months, and free subscription of Idea Movies & TV, Idea Music and Idea Games App for 12 months. The data roll over limit varies with every plan.
