Airtel hikes prices of its recharge plans; Deets inside

Currently, Bharti Airtel is increasing the price of its minimum recharge of monthly plan by 57% in Haryana and Odisha. The telecom operator will not be progressing Rs 99 plan in the two states and will now offer Rs 155 as its lowest prepaid recharge plan. This plan will also exist in pan-India level in the coming days. 

Airtel used to provide a minimum recharge plan of Rs 99 with 200 MB data and calls at the rate of Rs 2.5 paise per second for 28 days. But now, it is no longer available and instead, Rs 155 will be new minimum recharge plan. 

The new Rs 155 plan offers unlimited calling, 1 GB data and 300 SMS for  24 days. The pack also offers extra benefits including free Wynk Music and Hellotunes. The minimum recharge plan comes with a shorter validity compared to the 28-day monthly plan of Rs 99. Also being 57% more expensive, the new plan forces consumers who choose the Rs 155 plan to recharge more frequently.

Based on the results on the new recharge plan in Haryana and Odisha, Airtel will decide about its launch in India also. Airtel is also likely to discontinue all 28-day calling plans with SMS and data priced under Rs 155. If this happens, users have to recharge with Rs 155 to get SMS services or to continue the SIM if they use Airtel as their secondary number.
