P.V. and S.T.V. are the two abbreviations that are enough to recollect.

Plan Vouchers (PV) are practically gone now.
Special Tariff Vouchers are usually not allowed to queue.

Rate cutter STVs sometimes allowed one to retain the special tariffs even on the subsequent PV, after the existing PV (for service validity) expired.

But practically, now that is irrelevant.

(hypothetical example) If existing PV expires on January 01 and one does not recharge with a service validity pack for 10 days, and subsequently repeats the same PV, then too one gets the same tariffs as in the past.

But if an STV with different tariffs is done as the latest recharge then (SMS/ Data/ Call) tariffs as per that STV would apply.

The 'dictionary' largely contains of only two relevant terms P.V., STV and at most the third term is (outgoing) "service validity".
