Telecom major Bharti Airtel will raise the prepaid tariffs by around 20 per cent. Accordingly, the new tariffs will come into effect from November 26, 2021.

“Bharti Airtel has always maintained that the mobile ‘Average Revenue Per User’ (ARPU) needs to be at Rs 200 and ultimately at Rs 300, so as to provide a reasonable return on capital that allows for a financially healthy business model,” the telecom operator said in a statement on Monday.

“We also believe that this level of ‘ARPU’ will enable the substantial investments required in networks and spectrum. Even more important, this will give Airtel the elbow room to roll out 5G in India,” it said.

This revision is part of their “rebalancing” of tariffs, the filing said.

The current Tariffed Plan of Rs.79 is now Rs.99 with added benefits of 50% more talktime at Rs.99, 200MB data, 1p/sec voice tariff.

Airtel also announced new prepaid tariff plans for unlimited voice bundles with 28 days validity.

The new tariffs for all prepaid packs will be available on www. starting November 26, 2021.
