Airtel has introduced Rs 398 prepaid recharge plan which is expected to take on Reliance Jio’s Rs. 398 and Rs. 349 prepaid recharge plans. It comes with benefits of 1.5GB daily data, unlimited voice calls to any network across the country and 90 SMS per day, not 100 SMSes. Same as Reliance Jio, Airtel’s also providing unlimited local, STD and national roaming calls within India and there’s no limit on how many calls you want to make. Airtel is also offering a prepaid plan of Rs 399 which comes with a validity of 70 days and 84 days. It is also worth mentioning that while Airtel’s Rs 399 recharge pack is a segmented plan and is not available to all subscribers, Airtel Rs. 398 prepaid recharge plan is an open market plan which is valid across all the 22 telecom circles in India.
To recall, Airtel has also revised its pre-paid plan of Rs 289. In this pack, now 4 GB data will be provided, and the validity has been increased to 84 days. Earlier Airtel’s Rs 289 prepaid plan had a validity of 48 days, along with unlimited calling and free SMS. Under this new prepaid plan by Airtel, a user can get unlimited roaming, STD, and local voice calling without any FUP limit benefit, per day 100 free SMS benefit, and 4GB of data benefits for the entire validity of 84 days. The Rs.289 bundled prepaid plan is currently available only in the Kolkata circle.
