The service, 'Post-to-Pre Talk time Transfer', has been launched in Mumbai, Maharashtra & Goa, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Chennai, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. This will be extended to other states in a phased manner, the company said in a statement.
This service will benefit post-paid users who have family members, domestic staff, friends or office staff using a pre-paid connection and need talktime balance.
This follows a number of schemes launched by the company that includes 'Chotta Credit', 'Pre-paid to Pre-paid Balance transfer' and 'Call Me back' services.
''This latest initiative addresses a latent need within customers groups, thus enabling them in controlling spends and assuring uninterrupted service,'' said Vodafone India's chief commercial officer, Vivek Mathur.
To transfer balance to a pre-paid connection, subscriber has to dial *130# and follow an interactive menu. Alternatively, the balance can also be sent by dialling *130#*Amount*Recipient Number#.
