    Airtel Prepaid Recharge Plan

    Airtel updated its prepaid recharge plans portfolio on Wednesday, removing the low-cost Rs. 49 plan and replacing it with an Rs. 79 plan. The change will take effect on a pan-India basis starting on Thursday, July 29. The Rs. 49 Airtel prepaid recharge plan included Rs. 38.52 in Talktime, 100MB of data, with a validity period of 28 days. Airtel changed its postpaid plans for both retail and corporate customers last week and pulled out the Rs. 749 family postpaid plan.

    With the latest update, Airtel subscribers will no longer be able to purchase the Rs. 49 prepaid recharge plan, which previously had a validity of 28 days. Users will instead have to choose the Rs. 79 plan as the most cost-effective choice. The Rs. 79 Airtel prepaid plan includes Rs. 64 in Talktime, 1 paisa per second local/STD call rates, 106 minutes of outgoing calls, and 200MB data. These have a 28-day validity period.

    Airtel has discontinued its cheapest monthly prepaid recharge plan, barely a few months after offering the Rs. 49 recharge free of charge and doubling the benefits of the Rs. 79 plan. In May, the initiative was announced to assist customers in the face of rising COVID-19 cases in the country, with the goal of benefiting 55 million low-income users.

    Vi (previously Vodafone Idea) followed Airtel’s lead and changed postpaid plans for both retail and corporate customers. Unlike Airtel, Vi offers an Rs. 49 prepaid plan that includes Rs. 38 in Talktime and 100MB of data for 28 days. The operator, on the other hand, is likely to follow in the footsteps of its New Delhi-based counterpart and issue a similar adjustment in the coming days.
