Idea offers a one-stop solution for customers with ‘Nirvana’ Plans

Catering to the digitally savvy, postpaid customers who are constantly looking for convenience and a single plan to cover all their mobile needs, Idea Cellular is now offering ‘Nirvana’ plans– a range of postpaid plans, offering holistic solutions beyond just mobile connectivity. The product will be promoted through a high-decibel advertising campaign which will kick start with a TVC which went on air today.

Idea Postpaid Nirvana Plans offer a one-stop solution which provides the freedom of unlimited calls, the excitement of non-stop internet, with data carry forward, assured device security, savings on family bills, the simplicity of free roaming across India, ISD benefits and the privilege of priority service and offers, in addition to Rs. 2,000 cashback on new 4G handset.

The new Idea TVC captures the unpredictable moments of joy in the lives of the protagonists, for example: ‘When the monthly bill does not worry you anymore; when the broken smartphone does not distract from your goals; when you realise that you need not worry about data getting over.’ Each of these moments illustrate the positive transformation and peace of mind that Idea Nirvana Postpaid brings to its customers’ lives, because “everything is taken care of”.

Speaking on the new campaign, Mr. Sashi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer, Idea Cellular said, “Brand Idea understands consumers’ needs and helps them positively transform their lives through its services. This campaign aims to capture how Idea’s Nirvana Postpaid Plans help transform moments of stress for the consumer into moments of carefree happiness. When a consumer chooses Nirvana plans, everything they need from their mobile service provider is taken care of, and so they can continue to focus on the bigger things that truly matter to them."

Starting with a monthly rental of Rs. 389, Idea Nirvana Plans go up till Rs. 2,999, providing high speed data benefit of 20 to 300 GB, carry forward limit of up to 200 to 500 GB (as per the plan) and 3,000 SMS per month (local, national, roaming).
