Bharti Airtel has been competing with its newest rival Reliance Jio for the past two years and has managed to keep competition strong. Bharti Airtel is now introducing a new prepaid plan to compete with the new Rs 398 plan introduced by Reliance Jio. Airtel’s plan also costs Rs 398 and will be providing its customers with a validity period of 70 days. The plan comes with 1.5GB 4G data per day, unlimited voice calls without any FUP limit and 90 SMS per day. But there is a small trade off where the number of unique numbers that can be called each week is limited and the total number of minutes will either be calculated on the basis of a day or a week.

This new plan from Airtel bests those available from its other rivals like the newly merged Vodafone Idea, but somewhat lags behind the Reliance Jio one.

Airtel also has a Rs 399 plan that offers 1.4GB data per day for 70 or 80 days, which is based out of luck. This plan unlike the Rs 398 one offer 100 SMS per day with unlimited voice calls. It is unclear if Airtel will discontinue the Rs 399 plans in favor of the Rs 398 plan.
