Expanding its prepaid tariff portfolio, Bharti Airtel has launched yet another combo recharge plan of Rs 195 in select circles. The new plan offers voice calling and data benefits for a period of 28 days. This plan joins the company’s list of combo prepaid plans such as Rs 168, Rs 199, Rs 249 and more. But sadly, it does not offer SMS benefits though. At the moment, Airtel has unveiled this plan in only a few circles as an open market one and the benefits of the plan remain same for all the users in the eligible circles. It will be interesting to see when Airtel is planning to launch the new Rs 195 prepaid recharge as an open market one.
Airtel Rs 195 Prepaid Recharge: Benefits and Validity
Unlike other combo recharge plans of Bharti Airtel, the newly introduced prepaid plan gives voice calling and data benefits only. Firstly, the plan offers unlimited local, STD and roaming voice calls without any FUP limit. Second, it provides a user 1.25GB of data per day, which becomes a total of 35GB data during the validity period of 28 days. As mentioned above, the new recharge plan from Airtel is not offering any SMS benefits, which might be a letdown for users who rely on text messages for communications.
Airtel Rs 195 Prepaid Plan is Limited to Few Circles at the Moment
Right now, the Rs 195 prepaid recharge plan of Airtel is available only in select circles such as Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, Kerala and a few. Also, the plan can be availed only via the company’s website and it’s yet to be made available for recharge through My Airtel application. We have checked the plan’s availability in Karnataka and Delhi circles, but there’s no luck. Let us know by commenting below whether Airtel launched this plan in your circle or not.
Airtel Rs 195 Prepaid Recharge vs Airtel Rs 168 Recharge
Very recently, Bharti Airtel launched a segmented tariff plan of Rs 168 which gives a user unlimited voice calls without any FUP limit, 100 SMS per day and 1GB data per day for 28 days. The newly launched Rs 195 prepaid plan comes with slightly better 1.25GB data benefit per day and unlimited voice calls but lacks free text messages benefit though. So if you send text messages more often, then you should get yourself the Rs 168 recharge, but again, it’s a segmented prepaid plan valid only for select users. Otherwise, you can choose the open market plan of Rs 199 which brings along 1.4GB daily data, unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS per day for 28 days.
In other news, the newly formed Vodafone Idea Limited has removed the basic talk time recharges of Rs 20, Rs 30, Rs 50 and so on, and introduced Active Recharges which offers talk time, rate cutter and data benefits for a minimum validity of 28 days. Airtel might counter the move by launching a similar set of plans in the coming weeks.
