There are no free SMS benefits, and once the data quota has been exhausted, users will be charged at 50p/MB. Like the Rs. 99 plan, Vi doesn't offer unlimited night data access as part of the Binge All Night benefit from 12 am to 6 am.
Meanwhile, the Vi Rs. 129 recharge plan offers the same benefits as Rs. 98 prepaid tariffs but comes with 18 days of validity.
