Bharti Airtel has announced a new tariff plan where it is offering 4GB 4G data per day for a month. The new offer is priced at Rs 999 and with it, Airtel is planning to counter Reliance Jio’s similar plans. Under the new offer, Airtel is offering 112GB of 3G/4G data at a price of Rs 999. This offer has a validity period of 1 month. The Rs 999 plan by Airtel is currently available only for prepaid subscribers of the network. If you wish to avail the tariff offer, you need to go to the Airtel website or the MyAirtel mobile app. Once there, you need to go to the recharge section where you will find the option which says ‘Rs 999’. You will have to click and pay. Earlier, Airtel also announced another offer where it is offering 30GB of extra free data for postpaid subscribers of the network.

Airtel’s Rs 999 plan clearly aims to target the users with high data consumption and it is similar to the Reliance Jio’s Rs 999 offer. These offers also come with unlimited voice calling and SMS features. However, Airtel in its ‘terms and conditions’ column, has said that the calling feature has a limit of 250 minutes per day as well as 1000 minuted per week. It applies to both local and STD. If the limit is exhausted, the calls will be charged at 10 paise per minute for same network calls and 30 paise per minute for Airtel to other network calls.

Interestingly, if your recharge your Airtel number with the Rs 999 pack, you can avail a 50 percent cash back by using Airtel Payments Bank. Meanwhile, Reliance Jio also has a Rs 999 plan, where it offers 90GB of 4G data. However, this plan is valid for a period of 90 days. So technically, users will get 1GB data per day. Notably, there is no daily limit on the data usage.

Similarly, there is a Rs 509 plan by Jio where the network provides 112GB of data. This offer is valid for 56 days, which means that you will get 2GB data per day. Also, BSNL offers 360GB of data for 90 days at Rs 444. Essentially the BSNL offers means 4GB data per day. However, BSNL does not support a 4G network as of now.

    1. Offers of 2GB data or more per day are meant for only those who download huge data on a regular basis. Question is whether they use mobiles or laptops to do that. My query is this: how many really need 2GB or more data per day? 2. One is also unable to understand Bharti Airtel’s preferential offer to post paid subscribers in case of prepaid the telecom company receives money in advance but benefits are being showered on post paid subscribers.
