The hike in Mobile Tariff plans has been on the card for quite some time now in India. Airtel has become the first telco to announce it. They have raised tariffs for its prepaid plans in Haryana and Odisha. As per the telco’s website, Airtel has hiked the minimum prepaid plan prices by 57% in Haryana and Odisha.
According to the Airtel website, the price of the minimum monthly prepaid recharge plan has increased by nearly 57% to Rs 155 from Rs 99 in both states. It is being said that the company is testing the plan in both states, with a wider rollout expected in the coming days.
Airtel’s Rs 99 prepaid plan offers customers 99 Talktime and 200MB of data. However, the new entry-level minimum recharge pack of Rs 155, which replaces the Rs 99 plan, now offers unlimited voice calling, 1GB of data and 300 SMSs.
