Indians traveling to Sri Lanka or Bangladesh will have one thing less to worry about. Airtel, which has operations in these two countries as well, has announced a new tariff for its customers in India, under which they will be able to make local calls in the country at Rs 1, while calling back home will cost them Rs 10. Incoming calls will be charged at Rs 10 only.
These rates are valid for all the Airtel India consumers traveling to these two countries. Hence they do not have to buy a special pack to avail these rates.
Both these countries fall in the ‘Rest of the World’ category for almost all the telecom operators in India which means that ISD calls and roaming rates in these countries were among the highest. However, this offer makes them the cheapest now, at least for Airtel customers.
