Bharti Tele-Ventures Ltd has announced that Airtel is launching a suite of Re 1 plans for its post-paid as well as pre-paid mobile customers.
Manoj Kohli, president, Bharti Airtel said, "The new plans are a result of the new ADC regime which we welcome as it helps us deliver greater value to the consumer."
For its post-paid customers, Airtel has introduced two new plans. The India Home plan at Rs 299 per month, offers Airtel-to-Airtel local calls at Re 1 for two minutes and to all other networks across the country at Re 1 per minute. SMS messages across the country will also be billed at Re 1. The India Roam plan is specially created for the roaming user and offers roaming calls at just Re 1 per minute.
For its pre-paid customers, Airtel has introduced a special Rs 899 recharge plan (inclusive of service tax.) wherein all local calls, STD calls and all SMS will be charged at Re 1.
