After BSNL, Bharti Airtel has revised two of its prepaid recharge plans to offer more data benefits to its customers. Out of the two, one of them also brings life insurance cover to its subscribers. The Rs 129 prepaid recharge plan of Airtel will now offer 2GB data every day to its customers. Along with that, it will now be available in the open market manner. The other plan that has been revised is the Rs 249 prepaid plan which will now offer Rs 4 lakh life cover from HDFC Life or Bharti AXA life insurance.
Airtel prepaid plan benefits (revised)
Airtel’s Rs 129 prepaid plan after revision will offer 2GB of data every day along with unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS daily. The plan will be valid for 28 days. Along with the regular revised benefits, the telecom operator is also providing users benefits like Airtel TV, Wynk Music subscription for free. Earlier, the Rs 129 prepaid plan offered only unlimited voice calls along with 1GB of data and 100 SMS daily. This plan was also limited to select customers only while the others got voice calling benefits of 220 local and STD minutes for 28 days. But after the revision of the plan, this distinction was removed and now the benefits can be used by any user. The Rs 129 prepaid plan is live on the Airtel website along with Airtel Thanks app.
On the other hand, the Rs 249 prepaid plan after revision offers same data and calling benefits as before. But the company has added 4 lakh life cover from HDFC Life or Bharti AXA. In addition to this, this plan includes the Airtel TV Premium subscription along with Rs 2,000 cashback on buying a new 4G phone. There is also an inclusion of a 1-year Norton Mobile Security along with Wynk Music subscription. In terms of benefits, the Rs 249 pack offers 2GB of data every day, unlimited calls and 100 SMS per day for 28 days. Similar to the Rs 129 plan, the Rs 249 plan is also live on the Airtel website and the Airtel Thanks app.
The revision was first spotted by Telecom Talk and although the life insurance seems like a good benefit but there are terms and conditions to it. To avail the life insurance on Rs 249 recharge the user needs to be between 18 to 54 years of age. Also, to keep the benefits intact, the user need to recharge every month in a consistent manner. To register, the user needs to apply for the insurance through an SMS. Then they need to reply and upload eligible documents for authentication. Once the authentication is complete, the subscribers will be able to manage their insurance details and fill in the nominee, address and other information from the Airtel Thanks app. Other than the application, the registration for insurance can also be done at an offline retail outlet.
