The company is offering the plan for its prepaid customers and it comes with a validity of 84 days
In order to compete with Reliance Jio’s Rs 399 plan, Airtel has come up with a new offer that provides free unlimited local and STD calling, 1 GB of data per day and 84 days validity for the similar price. The offer is meant only for pre-paid users. Interestingly, in the last few months, Airtel has been following the footsteps of Jio quite religiously except for one occasion where they offered carrying forward of left over data to next month.
To recall, Reliance Jio in July had introduced the Rs 399 plan, which offers unlimited voice calls along with 1GB of 4G data per day for 84 days. Further, Airtel has also come with some more recharge options starting from Rs 8 to Rs 349. Starting with Rs 8 pack, users will get local + STD calls at 30 paise per minute for 56 days. With the Rs 199 pack, users will get unlimited local calls along with 1GB of 2G/3G/4G data with a validity of 28 days.
On recharge of Rs 40 and Rs 50, users will get a talktime of Rs 35 and Rs 58 respectively with unlimited validity. Moving on Rs 149 pack, users will get unlimited Airtel calls along with 2GB data with a validity of 28 days. Lastly, Rs 349, users will get unlimited local + STD calls along with 28GB of data, with a daily limit of 1GB/day for 28 days.
For your reference, Reliance Jio is offering a host of new plans including the Rs 309 and Rs 509 recharges that offers 56 days of validity and users will get 56GB (1GB/day) and 112GB (2GB/day) respectively.
