In an effort to stay competitive against Vodafone and Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel has introduced two new long validity plans for its prepaid customers. The announcement comes on the heels of the introduction of Rs 1,699 yearly prepaid plan, which can be termed as a long validity plan as well. The new long validity plans priced at Rs 998 and Rs 597 come with validity of 336 days and 168 days respectively.
Airtel is offering these plans as an open market offer, which means any Airtel prepaid subscriber can recharge their number with these two long validity plans, TelecomTalk reports . In comparison to the Rs 1,699 plan introduced early this year, which is aimed at data heavy users, these two long validity plans seem to target those with heavy voice calling use. These new plans can be recharged from the company website or from the app.
