Bharti Airtel has announced its revised tariff plans for its prepaid services. The new move follows Vodafone Idea that announced its updated prepaid plans on Sunday, and while Jio has also announced a hike, it hasn’t detailed its new tariffs. The revised Airtel prepaid plans will come into effect from Tuesday, December 3. These are priced between Rs. 19 and Rs. 2,398 and offer benefits such as unlimited voice calling support as well as bundled SMS messages and data allocation. Similar to Airtel and Vodafone Idea, Reliance Jio also announced that it is set to increase its tariff by up to 40 percent through the new ‘All-in-One’ prepaid plans.
The updated prepaid plans represent tariff increases in the range of 50 paise per day to Rs. 2.85 per day, Airtel said through a press statement. The update doesn’t bring any notable changes to benefits that the New Delhi-headquartered operator usually offers to its subscribers. This means that there will still be perks from Airtel Thanks as well as access to Wynk Music. There are antivirus protection and device protection bundles with most of the revised Airtel prepaid plans.
