Most Indian mobile users have a pre-paid connection and are often on the lookout for attractive bonus cards or special recharge vouchers for reducing their local and STD call rates.
The primary reason mobile consumers in the country search for tariff cutter plans is because most operators charge around 1.5 paise per second for local as well as STD mobile calls, and they charge around 2.5 paise per second for calls to landlines.
Here is a list of top five bonus cards or special recharge vouchers from five operators who offer services in Delhi NCR.
Aircel – Rate cutter plan for Rs 40
If you are an Aircel subscriber in Delhi NCR you can use a Rs 40 bonus card, which is valid for 30 days, and call all local and STD mobiles and landline numbers for 40 paise per minute. Apart from that you can also make ISD calls to the US, Canada and the UK land line for 50 paise per minute (terms and condition apply).
The base tariff charged by Aircel for a new connection in Delhi NCR is 72 paise per minute for both STD and local calls on mobiles and landlines. One has to keep in mind, though, that this tariff is valid only for one year. After one year, all local calls are charged at Re 1 per minute; and Aircel to Aircel STD calls cost Re 1 per minute, while calls from Aircel to other subscribers cost Rs 1.50 per minute.
