What is Vi (Vodafone Idea) Chotta Credit?
Vi (Vodafone Idea) Chotta credit is an offer from Vi for its users when they have no talktime balance in their sim. We all know how calls and sms are important in emergency situations.
But in some cases having no sim balance is not good at all. So, to solve this problem and to help the users, they have created a small loan pack which is named as Chotta credit.
Every user is eligible for this loan and can get this loan under some criteria. There is no limit in getting this loan again and again provided that you have paid your old loan in Vi sim.
Note: After getting this loan you will receive ₹10 in your talktime balance. Once this extra balance is used, you will have to pay this with some interest which is approx 20%.
Requirements for getting the Vi (Vodafone Idea) loan
- If you are a new user of Vi then you have to wait for 90 days after activating your sim number. Once this verification period is over, then you will be eligible for this loan.
- Every user has to pay interest on the loan which is automatically withdrawn from their talktime balance, once it is above ₹12.
- There is no need for KYC, this is applicable on both new users and old users.
