Airtel announces free talk-time credit service for rain-ravaged Chennai

In order to facilitate communication with people living in rain-ravaged Chennai, Bharti Airtel has announced free of cost credit service for all its prepaid customers.


The company has launched an auto approval of ‘Talk Time’ credit up to Rs 30 for its prepaid mobile customers and free of cost credit of 10 minutes of Airtel-to-Airtel calling with a validity of two days.

Besides, there would be free of cost credit service for 50MB mobile data for prepaid customers with a validity of two days. For postpaid and fixed line customers, whose bills are due to be paid immediately, Airtel has extended the time to make the payment. The uninterrupted rains have resulted in excessive water logging and disruption of essential services in Chennai, thus causing power failures and impacting services in some regions.

“We at Airtel are relentlessly working with the local authorities to enable smooth mobile communication for Airtel customers across the city,” a company statement said.

To all telecom companies :

Even Kadaloor and Thoothukudi got affected. Why are you treating only Chennai people as humans?. 22 hours power cut to Tamilnadu and only 1 hour powercut to Chennai during 2011 to 2014. What the hell?.
