A Talktime on loan service is also available for Airtel mobile prepaid customers particularly in the cyclone affected areas, who are unable to avail any recharge option. Customers having a airtel mobile balance of below Rs.5 can now dial *141*10# or call 52141 to receive an additional talktime loan worth Rs.10, which is recoverable from the main account when the number is suitably recharged.
