Previously these two plans are priced at Rs99 only and with the reduced roaming ceiling prices, hope these plans doesn’t disappoint either. Useful for short term travelers on postpaid.

so according to you duane airtle the no. 1 best service provider who gives services to only those who can afford it doesn’t have enough money that they are hiking prices all around india. maybe giving so many gandhijis under the table is the reason.
