It has been raining new data plans from telcos and Airtel has now returned with its new plans for prepaid users. Airtel's latest plan goes head to head with the Reliance Jio Rs. 349 prepaid pack. In a pitched effort to counter Jio's offers, Airtel has introduced a series of new ultra-low data and voice call recharge packs for prepaid users starting at just Rs.8.

With recharge of Rs 15, Airtel subscribers will be allowed to make calls to the same network at 10 paisa per minute for a period of 27 days. In this Superweek plan is a "Weekly" offers, it means the offers comes with the seven days validity.

At a time when other telecom operators charged users hundreds of rupees every month for making calls over their networks, Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Jio entered the telecom sector with a bang, promising unlimited voice calls using its state-of-the-art VoLTE network.
