Airtel is one of India’s top telecom providers, which has operations not only in India but also in Kenya, Madagascar, Rwanda, Ghana, etc. Along with being the top in providing network and telecom services, Airtel also came up with Airtel Money which helps its customers pay their utility bills, rents, recharges and even goods and services. Money transfer is another benefit of Airtel Money.
Then in 2017, Airtel Payments Bank was launched as your one-stop destination for all banking needs and services. It is a digital bank which operates wholly on your electronic device and provides every possible banking service. You can download it on both Android and iOS platforms.
First Recharge Plans are specific to those people who are using the prepaid services by Airtel for the first time. If you have subscribed to any Airtel recharge plan before, then you will not be able to avail the following plans.
- Rs. 197: The safest bet for those who want to try out Airtel’s services but do not want to burn a whole in their pocket, this plan is the starting of all plans. It comes packed with unlimited calling and 300 SMS free per day. The calling includes roaming calls also. Valid for 28 days, the plan offers 2 GB high speed data per day as well.
- Rs. 297: This is probably not the best deal by Airtel since paying Rs. 100 more does not really get you any more benefits. As compared to the 197 plan, you get 1.5 GB data and 100 SMS per day. The plan is valid for 28 days. All in all, it is better to pay less and get a better package.
- Rs. 497: This plan offers much more than the previous two. First of all, the plan comes with a validity of 56 days, with 1.5 GB data and 100 SMS per day. There is unlimited calling in the plan as well.
- Rs. 647: Valid for 84 days, this plan will get its subscribers 1.5 GB data and 100 SMS per day with unlimited calling. People with higher demand for longevity of the plan should opt for this one.
Other telecom networks such as Vodafone Idea, Reliance Jio and others have also come up with similar and competitive tariff recharges that have set the bar quite high for Airtel. However, Airtel Payment Bank is one such platform which will come handy for your recharges in future if you are planning to get a First Recharge plan. Airtel Payments Bank does not only cater to Airtel recharge but also to other famous network providers and their bill payments.
One can simply log in to their official website and set up their own account with the digital bank and start recharging anywhere anytime. Stay connected with your online wallet by receiving instant OTPs that will let you know where your money is at every point of time. The platform guarantees security from scams and also provides exciting promo codes, offers and cashbacks.
