Bharti Airtel's voice and data offerings Reuters

Subscribers can recharge their accounts with the new Rs. 109 pack either through the operator's official site or via My Idea app. Idea has launched a new Rs 109 pack with "unlimited" voice calls and 1GB 4G/3G data.

Idea also offers Rs 93 prepaid plan to the users which provides 1GB data and unlimited local and STD calls for 10 days.

Under this pack, Vodafone users will get unlimited local and STD voice calls along with free national roaming calls. Though the plan only offers a total of 1GB 4G/3G data for 28 days.

The Rs. 109 plan from Idea Cellular bundles 1GB data for the whole period of 28 days. The validity is 14 days for the other handsets. This pack has been launched few days after the launch of the Rs. 93 plan. Moreover, both these plans also don't come with the benefit of free SMS.

This new Rs 109 prepaid plan is available in selected areas only which including Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Bihar, Jharkhand, Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, and others. One should keep in mind that the plan offers 3G data to the users in most cases.

As India's older carriers slammed the telecom regulator for its regulations over the last 12-18 months which allegedly favour only new entrant Reliance Jio, the Mukesh Ambani-led telco called the "campaign" run by the incumbent operators as malicious, misleading and derogatory.

For higher data limits, subscribers can go for Rs 149 recharge, which gives 1.5GB data per day for 28 days along with unlimited calls, free roaming and 100 SMS per day. 100 local and national free SMSes are also bundled with this plan-according to Idea's website.

Under its 199 scheme, Airtel offers data at Rs 5.08 per GB compared to Rs 5.32 per GB charged by Idea.
