Airtel will be offering new recharge packs for its prepaid customers which range from Rs 8 to Rs 399.

The latest Rs 399 plan from Airtel offers 1 GB 4G data per day along with unlimited local and STD calls. But unlike Jio, Airtel's Rs 399 plan is being offered only to select prepaid customers. You will have to check with the customer care if the plan is available on your number or not.

Airtel is wooing customers considering its profit and margins have taken a beating in recent quarters. In the April-June quarter in 2017, Airtel reported a 75 percent decline in its net profit at Rs 367 crore.
