Airtel, India’s leading telecom operator has reportedly launched a new plan to counter 4G entrant Reliance Jio’s Dhan Dhana Dhan scheme. The Sunil Mittal-led telco is now offering unlimited calls to any operator along with 1GB of data per day for 70 days for Rs 399. The plan is being offered to prepaid customers as a segmented offer through the telco’s application.
Apparently, these plans are available only for those Airtel users who are using Airtel 4G SIM on 4G-enabled mobile. Airtel is also speculated to launch two new prepaid plans in a reply to Jio’s new Dhan Dhana Dhan plan that offers 1GB data and 2GB data per day at different prices. While the company has not made any official announcement, Bafna has a solid reputation when it comes to telecom related leaks in India.
Reliance Jio had earlier this week launched its Dhan Dhana Dhan scheme which offers 84GB data or 1 GB data per day at the price of Rs 309 for a span of three months. The plan also comes bundled with unlimited local and STD calls, along with unlimited access to digital services.
A tariff war has been going on between Reliance Jio and Airtel since Jio made its debut in the telecom market. The two companies have locked horns on Jio’s new Dhan Dhana offer which was recently launched after TRAI advised Jio to abolish its Summer Surprise Offer. Airtel has dubbed the offer as a classic example of “old wine in a new bottle.” For us customers it is a great news as we are getting a great bang for our bucks.
