According to a report from TelecomTalk, Airtel recently introduced its Rs 199 postpaid plan in the Jammu and Kashmir circle.

Inspecting the plan, we get to know that Bharti Airtel is offering unlimited voice calling to any network in India. Airtel is also offering 100 SMS per day along with a 25GB data allowance. However, the problem with the data allowance is that no eligible Airtel user can use it. The government of India shut down internet services in Jammu and Kashmir area in August 2019.

As previously noted, the government lifted restrictions on internet services after 150 days. However, internet services are still restricted for regular citizens as the lift is only applicable to government hospitals. This comes two months after the government lifted restrictions on calls, and 10 days after SMS services. The Rs 249 postpaid plan is currently only available in Jammu and Kashmir.
