Let me translate the above for plans for you.
According to this Plan you will have to first pay full price of the device (Rs. 34,500 or Rs. 40,900) then you choose any of the corresponding Monthly rental Plans.

For Eg you you choose the plan with monthly rent as 1119 in this Plan you get all the stuff mentioned in the freebies every month and for 24Months(2years) your monthly rent will be Rs 399 and after 2years your monthly rent will be Rs 1119. So actually there is no money back, nor is Aircel going to sell you the iPhone 4 at cheaper price.  Same goes on for all other plans,

You have the option to chose any other plan you like if you want a different plan.

Prepaid

The iPhone is available in the following prepaid plans:

16 GB iPhone 4 32 GB iPhone 4
MRP: Rs.34,500 MRP- Rs.40,900
Monthly recharge 599 699 799
Free Local Minutes 1750 2000 2250
Free SMS (Local + National) 1000 1000 1000
Free 3G Data 500MB 750MB 1GB
Validity 30 days 30 days 30 days
Value of freebies 1900 2225 2550

This Plan is not cheap and you are not saving 1300Rs like it says if you go for other prepaid recharges you will realize that you dont need to waste 600 Rs. Everything depends on your usage, so choose wisely.
These are just ways called marketing where they show you big numbers in savings to attract people when actually they are paying more than what is required.
