    Amazon Prime Price Hike in India

    Highlights of the Story

    • Amazon Prime subscription charges in India will soon get a hike.
    • This will lead to telecom plans that offer complimentary Amazon Prime to get a hike as well.
    • Here’s all you need to know about the new Amazon Prime prices and more.

    When Amazon Prime was launched in India back in 2016, it was priced at Rs. 499. This was an introductory offer and Amazon Prime membership was later hiked to Rs. 999 per year. Now, the subscription is set for another price hike most likely later on this year. An exact date for the hike has not been unveiled yet.

    Now, the popular e-commerce platform has revealed that the telecom plans that offer complimentary Prime services will be getting a price hike as well. This is quite obvious as the Amazon Prime membership services are getting a hike themselves. So, it only makes sense for the bundled telecom plans to increase their prices as well.
