Emergency Validity Loan

Airtel customers whose validity has expired can opt for the validity loan. There may be times when a customer may not be able to recharge on or before the expiry of their prepaid validity, thus rendering them unable to use emergency services. Emergency services like these will come in handy in such situations.

Availment and Recovery Process

Airtel customers can opt for the Validity loan via channels like IVR as a pre-call announcement or by dialling USSD code *567*2# or by replying with "1" to the Interactive SMS sent from CLI 56323 when they run out of validity.

Airtel will recover the one-day validity loan from the next validity pack recharge done by the customer, where one-day validity from the respective Prepaid recharge will be reduced post-recharge.
