In this article, we will check out the – Best New Airtel Prepaid Recharges based on usage that are currently available. I have segregated the plans based on low, medium, and high voice and data usage, so you find the best plan and spend the least on telecom.
Airtel offers a lot of different packs and recharges for its millions of users. The company is the No. 2 mobile operator in India and is second to JIO in subscriber market share.

In case you have a different primary Sim-Card and want to use Airtel Sim-Card as a secondary. Here is how much you will have to shell out to keep your Airtel connection alive.
You will have to do a Smart Recharge that comes with monthly validity, some talk time, and data benefits. You can use the Airtel Sim to get incoming calls and make outgoing calls.
The minimum recharge for keeping your Airtel number working for a month is Rs. 99.
|99||Talk-Time Rs. 99, Call Rates – 2.5p per second for local and STD Call + 200 MB Data Total||28 Days|
The 2.5p/sec tariff translates to Rs. 1.5 per minute for the call rate. You can get about 60 minutes of calls when using the Rs. 99 Airtel Plan.
You can also do a smart recharge of Rs. 109 that offers 30 days validity and the same benefit as the Rs. 99 plan. But if you are going for a Smart Recharge.
Note – Data Tariff post-quota completion will be charged at 50p/MB.
