Or did they?
As per an Indian Express report, this plan offers users 90GB of data for six months along with unlimited outgoing local, and STD calls for ₹399. The screenshot of the SMS posted by Indian Express also includes a number that customers have been asked to call to activate the plan.
What is interesting about this new plan from Vodafone is the fact that it has not been advertised anywhere by Vodafone India. Do not believe us? Just take a look at the website, Facebook and Twitter pages of Vodafone India and tell us if you find any reference to this mythical ₹399 plan. The only credible proof of the existence of this plan is a screenshot posted by Indian Express that reported the same story.
In fact, after the story about this plan was reported by multiple websites, several Vodafone users took to Twitter to inquire about the plan – only to be answered by the Vodafone team promising them a callback.
I am Vodafone user.
Does ₹399 Vodafone plan available for Maharashtra circle?

So what is happening here?
It is quite likely that this new plan from Vodafone is only available for select Vodafone customers. Or this offer could be one of the many plans that are used as a last resort to retain customers who have submitted a porting request from Vodafone to other networks. Or there is a possibility that this was a plan only for a select circle.
On the Vodafone website, for some circles, there is a ₹349 plan that offers customers 1GB of data per day with unlimited mobile & landline calls – which on paper, seems to be a better one than this ₹399 plan that is being talked about now.
Here is a screenshot of that plan as seen on the Vodafone website.
Anyway, we should have more clarity on this front in the next few days. We have also reached out to Vodafone for more details. We will update this article if and when we get a response from them.
