Abhinaya Prabhu

After having revised a few of its existing prepaid and postpaid plans and launching the new combo prepaid packs, Airtel has come up with a new set of plans for new subscribers. The telecom operator has introduced an array of first and second recharge plans for the subscribers who join its network.

Airtel has come up with the First Recharge (FRC) prepaid plans priced between Rs. 178 and Rs. 559. The high-end plan offers 126GB of data all throughout its validity period. Overall, the telco has introduced five FRC prepaid plans offering data, voice calling and SMS benefits for the users.

Subscribers can avail the recharges either while they buy a new Airtel 4G SIM card or from the My Airtel app or the official website of the telco. It has to be noted that the existing Airtel subscribers cannot make use of the benefits of these FRC plans. Let's take a look at these plans and the benefits from below.
