Anybody know, if I recharge my airtel number in advance from 3rd party app(Neu) . Will the new plan be immediately applicable or will kick in only once current plan expires?

Edit: Recharged for 1 year 1799 plan via tata neu and it queued, saved few bucks thanks to dimers

Once the current plan expires - If you recharge (from anywhere) your Airtel plan before the existing one has expired, the plan will be queued up until the expiry. Only after the plan expires, the new one will commence.


  • An Airtel customer subscribing to Unlimited calling offer will get accretive validity if the subsequent recharge is done prior to expiry of current recharge, maximum validity accrual can be done for a period of upto 730 days, post which all subsequent accretive recharges will fail.

    • MRP 155, 179, 199, 289, 296, 455, 489, 509, 1799 which offer unlimited voice with fixed Data are accretive only on the same individual price point i.e when current and subsequent recharges are done with same MRP.

    • MRPs 209, 239, 265, 299, 319, 359, 399, 479, 499, 519, 549, 666, 699, 719, 779, 839, 869, 999, 1499, 2999, 3359 which offer unlimited voice with daily Data are accretive within this defined group of MRPs which offer Daily data benefits.

I tried it assuming it will work that way as last time it was working (i.e. queuing) in Feb 2023 but in Feb this year when I recharged my 1799 yearly plan where the existing plan had some 6-7days balance, it didn't queue and got activated 😌

I think it will queue only if you do the same existing plan recharge.. If you do with a different plan it will activate immediately
