Exclusive: Airtel Introduces Talk time Auto Credit – Get Rs. 10 when your balance goes below Rs. 5

Airtel Auto CreditAirtel customers would be aware of talk time loan feature where a user with a balance of less than Rs. 5 could request for a credit of Rs. 10 either by IVR or USSD. Now Airtel has upgraded this to enable auto credit every time a user’s balance goes below Rs. 5. Note that this is an opt-in feature and a user will have opt for the service through USSD or IVR (by calling 121).

USSD Codes

For activation of the service: *141*4#.

For deactivation of the service: *141*559#.

Note: USSD code might change from circle to circle, please check with your CC before opting for this service.

How it works?

  1. Whenever the user’s balance goes below Rs. 5, a credit of Rs. 10 is made automatically.
  2. Once the user recharges his number next time, an additional charge of Rs. 2 will be debited i.e., if you recharge for Rs. 50 next day you will get a talk value of Rs. 38 – Rs. 10 + 2 will be deducted.
  3. If the user does not use the talk value of Rs. 10 within 24 hours the credit will be taken back!
  4. If the user does not recharge his number in the next 24 hours and his balance is above Rs. 5, Rs. 1 will be deducted on a daily basis. Again when the balance goes below Rs. 5, auto credit of Rs. 10 is given and the cycle continues.

No doubt this is a useful feature from Airtel and can be handy at times when you are away in a place where it is not possible to get a recharge done. These days the situation might not arise for users of online recharge portals who provide wallets and IVR based recharge, but nevertheless this is a welcome move.

This idea is very helpful. I have given my airtel to my son, who went to USA, with some balance so that he can call as soon as he arrives in India. The balance was depleted with IR99 service. Later I came to know it is International Roaming. Later he called me and I could recharge. Auto Credit is indeed helpful.
