Idea “Language Helpline” Numbers for Conversational Support

Idea Cellular’s “Language Helpline” offers real-time assistance on day-to-day conversations to those who need to communicate with local people in their preferred language. This is India’s first ‘Language Helpline’ which offers conversational support to callers, in as many as 16 languages. A nominal charge of 50 paisa per minute will be applicable for calling the Language Helpline.

The Idea Language Helpline is a demonstration of the power of mobile telephony in bridging language barriers and will take the brand to a new level of consumer connect.

Any of the over 650 million mobile users in the country who have to move out of their homes for Career, Education, Travel and other prospects in life; or need to communicate with people talking different languages in their own surroundings, can now avail this unique service from Idea.

For instance, a Bengali speaking person who needs to have a conversation in Marathi, with a vegetable vendor or a cab-driver in Mumbai, can just dial 9702012345 and seek assistance on Marathi. The caller needs to verbalise his message and the same will be translated by the Idea Helpline agent, instantly on the phone. Input to the agent needs to be given in Hindi or English only for translation in the desired local language.

Callers can call any of the 22 customer care helplines of Idea from anywhere in the country, to get assistance on the language spoken in the circle where the call is being made. For eg: The Bengali caller in Mumbai can call the Idea Helpline number of Tamil Nadu for assistance in Tamil if the need arises.

Idea’s Language Helpline is available across all 22 telecom circles and in 16 Indian languages – Assamese, Bengali, Bhojpuri, English, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kashmiri, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Oriya, Punjabi, Rajasthani and Urdu.


Language assistance will be offered on the most spoken language(s) in the circle. The helpline number is the Idea customer care number of that circle and can be accessed by Idea subscribers as well as any other mobile user.

Idea’s customer care IVR has been revamped to incorporate the Language Helpline. Callers seeking assistance on language will be directed to the Language Helpline through the IVR menu in a user-friendly manner. A dedicated team of agents who understand and speak the local language have been deployed to assist callers.
