Bharti Airtel Postpaid Plans Offering Add-On Connections Still Remain Unbeatable in the Market

Bharti Airtel has got the most attractive and value for money postpaid plans in the market right now. Although the RED postpaid plans by Vodafone come very close to compete with Airtel’s myPlan Infinity postpaid plans, the extra benefits like add-on connections, rental discounts and free Amazon prime memberships make the postpaid plan one of the most sought after in the market. Idea Cellular’s Nirvana postpaid plans also compete very closely with Airtel’s postpaid offerings, however, Airtel has maintained its dominance in the market thanks to its revised plans.


The add-on connection capability in Airtel’s plan is exclusive to the telco and it allows a child connection under the parent connection. Both the accounts are billed under a single name and the child connection is eligible for all the same benefits without the extra benefits for the same price. Out of the seven postpaid plans being offered by Airtel, five of them come with add-on connections. The Rs 649 postpaid plan grants one add-on connection, while the Rs 799, Rs 1,199 and Rs 1,599 plans offer two and three add-on connections respectively. The Rs 1,999 myPlan postpaid plan also comes with three add-on connections whereas the Rs 2,999 plan will allow four add-on connections to the users.

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 649 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 649 postpaid plan, i.e., 90GB 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 a 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.
