When Airtel introduced minimum prepaid recharge last year, subscribers were required to make a minimum recharge of Rs 35 to extend their validity by 28 days. They were only entitled to get incoming calls during this time. For data and voice calling, a separate recharge was to be made.

After the validity ends, users would have to recharge again. Alternatively, Rs 35 from their balance would get debited and validity would get extended. Failing to do so incoming calls would continue for 14 days before calls getting completely barred.

Now, the same has been reduced to 7 days. After this, subscribers will not be able to make outgoing calls even if they have balance. However, incoming calls will continue till 7 days. After 7 days, incoming calls will also stop, and unless users recharge the account to continue to be able to make and receive calls.
