Tariff War: Bharti Airtel Combats Reliance Jio’s Rs 98 Plan With Unlimited Voice Calls, 100 SMS Per Day, 1GB Data for 10 Days at Rs 93

Bharti Airtel recently introduced a slew of prepaid tariff plans under the Prepaid Promise scheme. And the company has a Rs 93 tariff plan, which offers benefits for ten days. The Rs 93 tariff plan is one of the best plans from Airtel, aimed at users who’re looking for an entry-level plan with a limited validity period. And more importantly, it competes with Jio’s Rs 98 tariff plan.


Airtel’s Rs 93 tariff plan offers unlimited voice calls including roaming calls without any FUP. It also offers 100 SMS per day and 1GB data for 28 days. This 1GB data benefit is applicable on any handset. If a customer is using a 3G handset, he can use Airtel 2G/3G data.

This plan from Airtel is aimed at Reliance Jio’s Rs 98 tariff plan, which offers benefits 14 days from the date of recharge. With the Rs 98 tariff plan, Jio is offering unlimited voice calls like Airtel without any FUP, 150MB data per day which takes the total data benefit to 2.1GB. It also offers 140 SMS for the entire validity period.

While Airtel has the upper hand when it comes to SMS offering, Reliance Jio leads the way in the data offering, like always. Another benefit with Jio’s Rs 98 plan is it offers 64 Kbps after FUP speed, making it unlimited data.

Spectrum in 2300 MHz band needs to be harmonised although spectrum in evey band is scattered & must be harmonised & utilised from wastage.
IDEA should sell its 5 MHz (10MHz) BW in 3 circles to Airtel otherwise they’ll face interference & its not feasible to deploy in such low bandwidth in TDD band.


There is some miniscule gap , which is guard band . So there won’t be any issue of interference. What I think can rather be done is , Jio has 2 holdings in 2300 as 20+10 , can’t they be given a contagious chunk by trai?


@Gaurav For lower band like band 5, a carrier of 80KHz are used as guard band between two operators. dont know situation about B40.
But for Idea a 10 MHz in 1800 is three times better because in FDD the are 10 mhz for upload & 10 mhz for downlink. It’d would be difficult for Idea to operate in less bandwidth.
Though 20 MHz is still available hope DOT will release it in next auction rest 20 MHz is reserved for def.
