Airtel raises prepaid tariffs by 20%, effective from Nov 26
IANS 22 November 2021
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 regulatory filing.
 
"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."
 
This revision is part of their "rebalancing" of tariffs, the filing said.

Will dept/me ministry of Communication & TRAI not examine plans to raise charges & fix charges. All Telecom cos will raise charges. If we change from one to another as latter has lower charge, we will made to pay more after some days. Vodafone wants Rs399 instead of Rs 299 from 24.11.21 & offers a 1yr BAIT of unwanted facilities. I wanted to change to Airtel today but your report is disconcerting. It wants to earn more profit & use that excess to enter 5G.
