Vodafone launches Sakhi pack for its women customers, allows mobile recharge without disclosing number

In an innovative move, Vodafone India on Friday launched Sakhi pack for its women  customers. The new pack provides the facility to its users to conveniently recharge their mobile phones, without sharing their mobile numbers with retailers.

Here is a step wise guide to avail the Sakhi pack.

  • To avail the Vodafone Private Recharge option, a user needs to send an SMS - 'Private - to 12604. The SMS message would be toll free.
  • After which, the users will be able to make a Private Recharge through an OTP code, without sharing mobile number.
  • The received One Time Password (OTP) can also be used for all recharges done over a 24 hour period.

The Sakhi scheme also provide the users connectivity with 10 minutes of calling even with zero balance on their phone.
