In a bid to offer affordable 4G smartphones, Vodafone India has extended its partnership with domestic phone maker Micromax. As a part of this new collaboration, Vodafone has announced exciting cashback offers of Rs. 2,200 on the entire range of entry-level Micromax 4G smartphones.

To recall, Vodafone and Micromax had earlier partnered to offer India’s lowest priced 4G smartphone, dubbed as the Bharat 2 Ultra, which costs just Rs. 999. The smartphone under Micromax’s ‘Bharat series’ aims to bring a better camera, battery and display option for the first-time smartphone users in the budget category and takes on the much talked about JioPhone.

Now, under the new extended partnership, existing and new Vodafone customers can purchase any of the Micromax smartphones among Bharat 2 Plus, Bharat 3, Bharat 4 and Canvas 1 and enjoy the cashback offers. To avail the special offer, customers need to do a recharge of at least Rs. 150 per month for the 36 months, the recharges can be of any denomination. The telecom operator then provides the cashback offers.

Speaking about the offer, Avneesh Khosla, Associate Director – Consumer Business, Vodafone India said,

This is an initiative to democratize access to Vodafone SuperNet 4G. Recently through our partnership with Micromax, we launched the most affordable smartphone in the country at a very attractive price of Rs 999/-.  We are now giving more options to our customers to choose from by bringing four more entry-level Micromax 4G smartphones within the special cash back offer. We hope that this will encourage and enable several million phone users to upgrade to a smartphone and enjoy a richer user experience with Vodafone SuperNet 4G.”
