Idea Cellular, one of the leading telecom operator in the country has launched new combo packs for its prepaid mobile subscribers in the circle of Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh.


These new combo packs come with heavy-usage plans and bundle data, SMS, along with unlimited local minutes and some STD minutes.

These packs start from Rs. 1,098/month and go as high as Rs. 3,249/month and come bundled with 3G internet data as an added advantage.

New Combo Pack Details

These combo packs launched by Idea in MP and Chattisgarh offer the following benefits:

Rs. 1098 pack- This comes offers unlimited local Idea-Idea calls and comes bundled with 3GB 3G data, 100 SMS/day, all valid for 28 days.

Rs. 1,749 pack on the other hand, packs unlimited local mobile calls to any network. The pack also offers free 3G data usage up to 5 GB and free 100 SMS/day valid for 28 days.

Rs. 2,249 and Rs. 3,249 packs- These packs offer unlimited local and STD calls to any number within home circle and also during roaming. Just like other packs, these packs also bundle free 100 SMS/day but differentiate themselves by offering 7 GB and 15 GB 3G data for Rs. 2,249 and Rs. 3,249 packs respectively.

Our Take…

These heavy-usage plans might not suit the needs of a regular mobile connection user. Also, these packs are priced too high to make a difference, in my honest opinion.

These packs also bear a striking similarity to Airtel’s Infinity Plans which were launched about a month back. Idea Cellular is also trying to do the same and gain some additional users by launching these packs.

It is worth noting that Idea Cellular is facing cut-throat competition from Bharti Airtel in the telecom circle of MP and Chattisgarh. Airtel has managed to add 1,22,368 users in the circle of MP & Chattisgarh, according to reports released in August, 2015. Idea on the other hand, could only add 19,310 users in the concerned circle and is thus trying too hard to bag new mobile phone users by launching new packs.

Idea Cellular is also planning to its own FDD-LTE 4G network in the circle by early next year. Let’s wait and watch how things pan out for Idea. After all, ‘An Idea can change your life’.
