Recharge your Airtel number right now! Prices of Airtel prepaid plans set to increase soon

Airtel announced a price hike of its prepaid recharge plans to maintain a healthy business model. But you can still recharge your Airtel number with the old prices. Here's how.

Giving a huge blow to its customers, the telecom giant Airtel has announced an increase in its tariffs by 20 to 25 percent across a range of prepaid plans. This step has been taken largely to maintain a financially healthy business model and will also fulfill its investment needs for the 5G rollout in the country, as stated by the company. The new Airtel recharge plans will come into effect from November 26th, which means you can still recharge your Airtel number with your favourite plan at old prices.
