Airtel has finally awoken to the upcoming tariff-war on Roaming-Calls, and launched Per-second tariffs for Roaming Calls.
While Roaming tariffs have been slashed over the last few years, it has been only Tata Docomo and BSNL who have been bold enough to offer PER SECOND / INCOMING FREE call charges, while roaming across India.With Tata Docomo's RC46 one can avail free incoming calls on Roaming for 60 days, while BSNL has a similar offering with RC150 that includes some freebies as well.
Now Airtel India's prepaid mobile customers can roam over the country at just 1.5 paisa per second. Airtel introduces a new STV for that purpose, which varies slightly from circle to circle. For eg. Kolkata Airtel customers can recharge with RC25 and roam at 1.5p/sec. Similar STV is available in West Bengal for RC37, while Orissa users pay just Rs28 for getting this benefit on roaming. The offer is a on-going offer.

1. This is available on LAPU Recharge only
2. Applicable for all Prepaid Customers of WBO Only ( Except FWP, CCB, Turbo & Channel)
