Shocked to see Vodafone Service Validity plan voucher worth Rs.24 has now reduced validity from 28days to 14 days cry rage (listed in official vodafone site itself)
Do we need to pay 48 rs (24+24) for every month just for service ? What service they’re providing for that rolleyes rage Only balance deduction.
Better Airtel is still maintains its Rs.23 service pack with 28 days validity.

Check validity of that 23 recharge. Is it still 28 days or reduced to 14 days?

Validity Is Still 28Days For 23Rs Plan.
Same In Airtel Thanks App.

In Voda, There Is 26Rs Plan For SMS With Validity Of 28 Days. So If This Plan Is Activated Then Do We Get Validity Of 28 Days Well ?

I thought the same thing but then clicked on “show details” where it clearly says “no service validity” pensive

Above is for Idea but I don’t think voda will not do the same thing,just shows voda’s deceit.

But still official Vodafone site/app and other recharging site says only 14days service validity for rs.24.
So still it may be a gimmick trick by Vodafone to make all to recharge. Lets wait and see !

@mastervijay – Yes the validity for Voda 24 has been reduced to 14 days. See the Screenshot attached.

Thanks for sharing bro.. !
Also make Note that, Rs.49 service pack with 28 days validity and 38 talktime is Limited validity (Talktime credits in secondary balance and becomes unusable on 29th day) -Confirmed today with Vodafone customer care.

I too noticed LIMITED VALIDITY Criteria.

Telecom operators have now become MAD. They are intoducing new criteria every month be it off net calls, FUP, service validity etc.

P.S. – It has now become too costly to keep secondary number.

When the govt. itself is not consumer centric, why would Airtel or Jio be consumer centric? They have every right to be anti-consumer and govt. is bound to support them owing to the inflow of billions of Rupees in the form of taxes through these companies.

So our DD friend @Vulcan took all the efforts and contacted Vodafone directly for a correct answer regarding the service validity and here’s the reply he received. If you don’t have enough time to read all this then scroll down to below at the end there’s a short conclusion of what they said.

All credit goes to @vulcan and I think you all should also reward him for all his efforts.

You know how to reward someone in DD don’t you? wink

So Here’s the written transcript or e-mail thread

Question :-

Dear Vodafone Representative,
I have been curious about how to extend the validity of my Vodafone no. I tried to look for a min recharge amount required to keep my account active or extend the validity of the same. Below are my questions regarding the validity extension of my Vodafone no

Q1. Can SMS pack Z26 extend validity by 28 days too for my inactive Vodafone no?

Q2. Is there any below 49 which can extend validity by 28 days?

Q3. what is the grace period for no to be deactivated?

Q4. what are charges made by you on inactive no having main balance?

Reply by Vodafone :-

We appreciate you reaching out to us my name is censored by me and I will be assisting you today regarding service validity towards your Vodafone number

I sincerely regret for the inconvenience caused to you.

With reference to your email, I would like to inform you that SMS pack validity is limited for that SMS pack only.

Further, I would like to inform you that recharges has been upgraded from 03/12/2019 so kindly please check minimum recharge offers available for your number from My Vodafone App.

Regarding service validity (grace period) -

With regards to your concern I hereby inform you that, once your service validity date expire services of your number will be barred.
Post services expiry you have to recharge your number to extend service validity.

While post expiry of service validity if any Talk time balance remains it will be continues with your next recharge in addition with that recharge benefits.

Do Please note below points:

• If you do not recharge after service validity expiry, number moved to G1- This is a 7 day period after service validity expiry, wherein customers can only receive incoming (e.g. calls/SMS) but cannot use their mobile for outgoing usage (e.g. calls/data/SMS). Customers can recharge in this period with a service validity product to move to ‘Active state’.

• If you do not recharge in G1, number moved to G2- This is a 90 day period after G1, wherein customers will not be able to use incoming (except incoming SMS) along with outgoing services (Calls/data/SMS/VAS) etc. 1. If you recharge in this period with a service validity product to move to ‘Active state’

2. If you do not recharge during this period, the system will check Rs.20/- talk time in the account – If talk time of Rs.20/- is available Rs.20/ will be deducted from the Talk time and you will continue to be in G2 for 30 days. – If talk time of Rs.20/- is not available -The number will be permanently deactivated.

Further, I regret to inform you that you need to recharge your number with validity recharge to increase service validity. Regarding Auto deduction from core balance —I would like to inform you that auto deduction of Rs.24/- is a service introduced for all prepaid customer to avoid barring of their Vodafone services after validity expiry.
i.e. If your service validity is going expire and you have balance greater than or equals to Rs.24/- you will allowed for 3 days extended validity and meanwhile you will be receiving SMS regarding auto debit of Rs.24/- deduction to extend service validity, also you will be also informed about the process to stop auto deduction via same SMS. If you failed to make recharge within 3 days after recharge expiry date. On expiry of extended validity, balance of Rs.24/- will get deducted from your Vodafone account and validity will get extended up to 14 days.

Thanks

Conclusion

✔️If you do not recharge then ₹24 will be deducted every 14 days just to keep incoming active.

✔️If no balance is there then within 90 days number will be disconnected

✔️ No other packs like sms pack will extend validity

✔️ ₹625+ per year just to keep sim active as per this
