Airtel extends prepaid validity, gives Rs 10 talktime to low income customers
Deal Expired

http://air...in
Airtel on Monday announced that it extended the prepaid pack validity for over 80 million customers till April 17, in order to assist customers from low income groups who are affected by the pandemic. The telco announced that all these customers will continue to get incoming calls on their phone even after the validity of their plan is exhausted.

This comes after Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra called upon telecom companies to make their services free for a month to enable the poor migrant labourers reach out to their near and dear ones. In separate letters to Airtel chief Sunil Bharti Mittal, Reliance chief Mukesh Ambani, and heads of BSNL and Vodafone, she highlighted the plight of lakhs of migrant labourers walking down to their native places, without food, medicines and shelter.

Airtel also announced that it would credit Rs 10 talktime to the prepaid accounts of these 80 million customers. Airtel has reached this number based on the Average Revenue Per Customer (ARPU) it earns from customers.
“The program has been kicked off, and these benefits will be available to users in the next 48 hours,” Airtel announced.

The telco said that this 80 million covers all underprivileged households on its network, and will benefit migrant workers affected by the lockdown.

Shashwat Sharma, Chief Marketing Officer of Bharti Airtel said “In this difficult hour of fighting off the threat of Covid-19, Airtel is committed to ensuring that all people remain connected without any disruptions. And for this objective, it is critical to take care of the under-privileged daily wage earners of our country, whose lives have been disrupted due to the lock-down”

80 million * 10 will not be so miserly. And incoming till 17th. So this 10 is basically for emergency/miss calls.
Appreciate this small gesture, if they indeed implement this. This small gesture might be very helpful to those homeless guys walking miles to reach their homes..

Totally agree.
All we do is to criticize these companies. Even after their huge losses, if they are helping for even a single penny(that too for poor), it counts and should be appreciated.

8 करोड़ यूजर्स के लिए Airtel का बड़ा तोहफा, मिलेगा फ्री टॉकटाइम और वैलिडिटी


कोरोना वायरस के चलते देशभर में लॉकडाउन किया गया है. इस बीच देशभर के लो-इनकम सब्सक्राइबर्स की मदद के लिए Airtel ने दो नई घोषणा की है. पहला कंपनी अपने 8 करोड़ लो-इनकम सब्सक्राइबर्स को 10 रुपये का टॉक टाइम दे रही है. इस टॉक टाइम का इस्तेमाल कॉल करने और मैसेज भेजने के लिए किया जा सकता है.


दूसरा कंपनी ने सारे प्रीपेड रिचार्ज की वैलिडिटी को 17 अप्रैल तक बढ़ा दिया है. यानी जो ग्राहक 14 अप्रैल को लॉकडाउन खत्म होने तक नया रिचार्ज पैक नहीं खरीद पाएंगे उन्हें बिना रुकावटल इनकमिंग सेवाएं मिलती रहेंगी. एयरटेल ने जानकारी दी है कि ये बेनिफिट 8 करोड़ सब्सक्राइबर्स के अकाउंट में अगले 48 घंटों में क्रेडिट कर दिया जाएगा. ध्यान रहे कंपनी की ओर से ये कदम लो-इनकम सब्सक्राबर्स के लिए उठाया जा रहा है

Nothing like that, all my sims had incoming validity yet i got extensions. It may be a circle specific issue.

The only common thing among these numbers is all of them are used in feature phones joy and two of them for incoming only.

10 Rs in Airtel balance not airtel money. With 2.5 paise/second call charge, they are hardly giving 400 seconds. Giving 6-7 minutes per user won’t cost them more than 1-2 Rs actually. Moreover, it is available for only users which has incoming but not outgoing has been stopped. Provided Airtel gives just 5-6 days grace period, I highly doubt 80 M users.
