Airtel’s 100% cashback offer will be a tough competition to Vodafone, Reliance Jio, Idea and BSNL operators
After launching of Reliance Jio the telecommunication operators were in great loss as Jio introduced free calling, free data, free messaging and free Jio apps for 3 months and extended this plan by three months from Feb 2016 and recently introduced Diwali Dhan Dhana Dhan offer at Rs 399
Operators which were baring the loss also started to lower their Data rates and full talk time offers and started to offer Free calling and 1 GB/day data to 4G users with recharge worth rupees 345-350. This made a big change to Indian telecommunication market rates and public interest towards 4G Network. The recent offer introduced by Reliance Jio Diwali Dhan Dhana Dhan offer at Rs 399 with 100 percent cash back but one had to recharge between October 12 and 18 to get the offer, which users cannot go for this offer now. Interestingly, giving a tough competition to Reliance Jio Bharti Airtel has now launched a similar plan with 100 percent discount, throwing a tough challenge to its rivals.
Airtel offers 100 percent discount on a recharge of Rs 349. The pack offers 28GB of data for 28 days with a FUP of 1GB per day and free voice calls to all networks. The pack comes with some terms & conditions, as customers will get Rs 349 cash back in seven installments.
Airtel customers, who are willing to grab this Rs 349 plan, will be started to refund after one month of recharge with Rs 50 per month which will be followed by more six installments of Rs 50 till six months. To avail, this offer Airtel users have to recharge using My Airtel app and make the recharge payment via Airtel payments Bank.
Getting more positive looking at this Reliance Jio has a Rs 349 plan offering unlimited 4G data(10+10GB of data) valid for 56 days(2 months) and free voice call to all networks(local+STD+roaming), while Vodafone’s Rs 348 pack offers unlimited data at 4G speed for 28 days with a FUP of 1GB per day and free voice call to all networks (Local+STD).
Idea Cellular also has Rs 348 plan that offers unlimited 4G data for 28 days with a FUP of 1GB per day and free calls to any network across India (local+STD). However, the offer can be availed by only 4G handsets and those with a 4G-enabled SIM card. BSNL’s Rs 249 plan also offers unlimited data for 28 days with a FUP of 1GB per day and free voice calls within the same network (local+STD).
However, fights between these top operators will be continuing, offers will be provided one after another and we will be benefited by the operator we use. This will have a great impact on small operators like Tata Docomo, Aircel, Uninor, etc. as these operators haven’t launched 4G yet. so whatsoever be in your operator’s service and enjoy the benefits provided.
