The vouchers are available in denominations of Rs. 35, 65 and 95, and not just offer data and talktime, but additionally behave as rate-cutters for those local and national voice calls on mobiles and landlines.
All of the three packs include 28-day validity, but offer different benefits. As the former includes 100MB of 3G/4G data, a chat duration of Rs 26.66 while offering a tariff of 1p/sec (or 60p/min) for local and STD calls, the second includes 200MB of 3G/4G data, full talk-duration of Rs. 65 and also the same 1p/sec (or 60p/min) tariff offer for local and national voice calls.

In an announcement announcing the brand new choices, Airtel stated the new vouchers ?have been designed based on extensive research and feedback from customers, who highlighted the requirement for talk-time, tariff and knowledge included in a single pack rather of the necessity to do separate recharges?. The packs will initially be launched in Punjab, Tamil Nadu & UP West and will also be folded in other areas within the next couple of days, stated the organization.
Even while Reliance Jio grows its market-share, revenues and profits by providing limitless free voice calls with no small print, its competitors apparently aren?t inside a mood to follow along with suit. It will likely be interesting to determine whether eventually, the kind of Airtel and Idea Vodafone make all voice calls free like Jio.
