Bharti Airtel is currently offering the best postpaid plans amongst all the top telecom operators. While the benefits of Airtel’s myPlan Infinity postpaid plans are similar to the RED postpaid plans of Vodafone and Nirvana plans of Idea Cellular, the small additions such as add-on connections, rental discount and Amazon Prime subscription separates Airtel’s offerings from others. Airtel is offering free Add On connections with its set of myPlan Infinity postpaid plans, allowing users to add child members to a parent account to enjoy same benefits as parent account’s plan without any additional benefit.
Its been a while since Airtel introduced this Add On scheme, but several readers have kept on asking queries on how this new scheme actually works. Firstly, let’s speak about the plans eligible for the Add On connections. Airtel has a total of seven postpaid plans and five out them offers Add On connections. Airtel’s Rs 799 postpaid plan allows users to add one add on connection, while the Rs 1,199 and Rs 1,599 plans offer two add on connections. The Rs 1,999 myPlan postpaid plan allows users to add up to three add on connections, followed by the Rs 2,999 plan with up to four add on connections.
So if you’re on any of these Airtel postpaid plans, you can add a free child Airtel postpaid account to share the benefits of your plan. For example, the Rs 799 myPlan Infinity postpaid plan allows a parent to add one child number to their account. After adding the child account, the benefits of the Rs 799 postpaid plan, i.e., 60GB data with data rollover scheme, free voice calls including unlimited roaming calls and 100 SMS per day can be shared between the two numbers.
And the same applies to premium plans as well. So if you’re on the premium Rs 2,999 postpaid plan which allows you to add up to four add on connections, the benefits will be shared between all the five numbers (including your number). The Rs 2,999 postpaid plan offers a whopping 300GB data per billing cycle. And the best part of this scheme there’s no FUP limit even for the add on connection. For example, the add on account can consume more data than your primary number.
That’s all about the Airtel postpaid data add on connections scheme, and this offer is valid across the country for every Airtel postpaid user, subjected if they’re using the eligible plan.
This Add On connections scheme is slightly different from Airtel Family Share scheme as the latter requires Rs 99 per Airtel postpaid number to share the benefits. However, Airtel is offering 20% discount on the Airtel Family Share scheme.
Other telecom operators such as Vodafone India and Idea Cellular are not offering any such benefits, but they’re providing Vodafone RED Together and Idea Family plans.
