Airtel minimum recharge now Rs 155


Airtel has announced a price hike for its minimum required recharge plan for prepaid users. Previously, users had to recharge with a Rs 99 plan that offered voice calls at 2.5 paise per second and 200MB data along with Rs 99 talktime. Now, however, the telecom player has mandated a minimum recharge of Rs 155 in two telecom circles – Haryana and Odisha.

The new minimum recharge plan is set to come to more circles eventually as per reports. This means that any monthly plans on Airtel could soon cost more than Rs 155. The Rs 155 plan comes with unlimited calling, 1GB of data and 300 SMS and is valid for 24 days.

With the new minimum plan set to be in effect in more regions, here’s a look at all the monthly plans that will be available for Airtel prepaid users, if all plans below Rs 155 are cancelled.

In other circles where the new rule has not yet come into effect, users can still make use of the Rs 99 (28 days), Rs 109 (30 days) and Rs 111 (1 month) plans.

It is currently unknown if and when Airtel will cancel these plans. We are also yet to see if other telecom players like Jio and Vodafone Idea will follow. More details should be officially available in the coming weeks.
