Right now, Airtel has launched a total of six Smart Recharge prepaid plans starting at Rs 25 and going all the way up to Rs 245. Airtel’s basic Rs 25 Smart Recharge offers a user Rs 18.69 talk time and 10MB data valid for 28 days.

Notably, in Chennai, these Smart Recharge plans are available as open market ones.

Airtel Removed Talk Time Recharges Priced Above Rs 20

Having said that, Bharti Airtel’s primary aim behind launching these plans is to making voice calling affordable for users. For example, until now Airtel offered talk time recharges of Rs 10, Rs 20, Rs 30 and so on, to its users. Interestingly, Airtel also removed the talk time recharges of denomination above Rs 20, meaning users have to rely on the new Smart Recharge plans. At the moment, only the Rs 10 talk time recharge is available for users to recharge. Do make a note that the talk time benefit offered with these Smart Recharges doesn’t have any validity.
