Airtel announces new monthly plans of Rs 109, Rs 111, Rs 128 and Rs 131 – check the details
Telecom operator Airtel has quietly added four new monthly prepaid plans for users to choose from. The new plans start at Rs 109 per month and go up to Rs 131 per month. These new plans are also in addition to existing prepaid plans and do not replace any of them.
Here are all the details you need to know about these four new plans, first discovered by TelecomHablar , including data, calling features and validity.
109 rupees plan
The cheapest of the four, the Rs 109 offers 200 MB of data, Rs 99 of talk time and a calling plan that charges you 2.5 paise per second. The plan also sets SMS prices at Rs 1 per SMS (local) and Rs 1.5 per SMS (STD). The plan is valid for 30 days.
111 rupees plan
Costing just Rs 2 more than the previous Rs 109 plan, the Rs 111 plan offers the same benefits but slightly different validity. Users get a validity of one month instead of 30 days (can be 28/29/30/31 days depending on the month). This allows users to recharge on the same date each month.
Benefits include 200 MB of data, 99 rupees of talk time with calls charged at 2.5 paise per second, and 1 and 1.5 rupees for local and STD SMS, respectively.
128 rupees plan
The Rs 128 monthly plan comes with benefits including calls charged at 2.5 paise per second, video calls charged at 5 paise per second, and data charged at 50 paise per MB. Meanwhile, SMS are charged at Rs 1 and Rs 1.5 for local and STD messages, respectively.
The plan is valid for 30 days. Please note that the plan does not offer talk time, which will need to be added separately through one of the recharge plans Airtel offers.
131 rupees plan
The Rs 131 also offers the same benefits as the Rs 128 plan mentioned above, but with a validity of one month instead of 30 days, allowing users to top up on the same date each month, regardless of the number of days in the month.
The benefits are calls to 2.5 countries per second, video calls to 5 countries per second and data to 50 countries per MB. SMS are also charged at Rs 1 and Rs 1.5 for local and STD messages, respectively. This plan also comes without talk time, which must be added separately.
