?I am yet to understand customer benefit in this offer.?
?E.g Nokia 6.1, 4GB. Down payment 5799 + 12 EMIs of 1499/- (with benefits of infinity 399/-) i.e. actual handset cost he is paying is 5799/- + 13200/- = 18999/-, Amazon cost 18999/-
Most of the Customer who uses Postpaid plan, usually have Credit Card where this phone is already available with No Cost EMI or can Purchase Bajaj FinServ EMI card for 412/-, then why to bundle Airtel plan for one complete year??

Sir ji, kabhi Customer ka bhi socho

Benefit to zero is nil.

But if airtel can get the commission on sale of these phones that would otherwise go to the shops and store chains, then why would they not do this? It will help their cash flows.
