“The Rs 249 Airtel recharge now includes Rs 4 lakh life cover insurance from HDFC Life or Bharti AXA”
Airtel has revised its Rs 129 and Rs 249 prepaid packs to give more benefits to subscribers. The former now offers double the data than it was offering previously, while the Rs 249 recharge includes a life insurance cover of Rs 4 lakh from HDFC Life or Bharti AXA. The validity of both the recharges, however, remain the same at 28 days.
Starting with Rs 129 Airtel recharge, it’s no longer limited to select users. Any subscriber across the country can avail the benefit of the pack, which now includes 2GB of 4G data per day, unlimited voice calls, and free 100 SMS per day. Users also get access to a suite of the company’s services, such as Airtel TV and Wynk Music for free. As stated above, it’ll be valid for 28 days. Earlier the plan used to offer 1GB of 4G data, unlimited calls, and 100 SMSes per day to select customers, while others got 220 local and STD minutes for the next 28 days.
The Rs 249 Airtel recharge, on the other hand, comes with the same benefits as it was offering previously, but the operator has added life cover worth Rs 4 lakh from HDFC Life or Bharti AXA. As reported by Telecom Talk, to avail the insurance cover, the subscriber will have to be between the ages of 18 and 54. Users will have to keep recharging monthly to keep the benefits intact. To enrol for the insurance cover, Airtel will send an SMS asking users to upload the eligible documents for authentication. Once the authentication is done, subscribers can add details such as nominee, address, and other information from the Airtel Thanks app. The insurance process can also be done offline.
In addition to that, the Rs 249 recharge also offers Wynk Music and Airtel TV Premium subscription, Rs 2,000 cashback on buying a new 4G phone, and one-year Norton Mobile Security. The benefits you get are 2GB daily data, unlimited calls, and 100 SMS messages per day for a validity of 28 days.
