Airtel has introduced a new Rs 65 plan offering 1GB of 3G data valid for 28 days. However, only selected users will be able to avail the plan as it is not available in all circles. The users can check their eligibility for the plan on the My Airtel app. Unlike other plans, this plan would not be offering any voice calling benefits. It does not come with any daily data limit and users will be allowed to utilise the data at any point within the duration of 28 days.
The company has various other lucrative offers in place for its users. Airtel had earlier introduced a Rs 49 plan which offers 1GB 4G data with a validity of one day. Airtel’s Rs 98 plan offers 5GB of 4G/3G data and is valid for 28 days. The company also has a Rs 157 plan offering 3GB of 3G/4G data to selected users for a period of 27 days. Since the arrival of Reliance Jio in the market, an intense price war has started in the telecom industry of the country with companies trying to outdo each other despite concurring regular losses.
Vodafone is also leaving no stones unturned to give a tough fight to Reliance Jio and Airtel. It recently introduced Rs 21 prepaid recharge offering unlimited 3G/4G data for an hour. The company’s Rs 95 plan offers 1GB of 4G/3G/2G data with a validity of 28 days. A report by CIEL HR Services had pointed out that the telecom sector has cut down on around 40,000 jobs since 2017 and is expected to cull down 50,000 more.
