How does the Airtel add-on plan structure work?

If you have an Airtel postpaid connection and are subscribed to one of the monthly plans, Airtel allows you to ‘add’ a friend or family to the existing pack. Doing this will cost the new users a lesser amount instead of the full price of the same plan. This lesser amount is the Rs 249 that the second customer will now have to pay.

For instance, if you are subscribed to the Rs 499 postpaid plan and want to add your spouse to the same plan, he/she need not pay another sum of Rs 499 every month. They only needed to pay the Rs 149 under the add-on service. However, now, the second customer will have to pay a sum of Rs 249 instead.

Apart from the complete add-on service, Airtel also offers a data-only add-on service. Under this program, the cheapest plan for the add-on customer is priced at Rs 98. Airtel offers the Rs 749 postpaid plan with 1 regular and 1 data-add-on plan for free. There is also another Rs 999 monthly plan that offers 3 regular and 1 free data add-on subscription.
