Bharti Airtel today announced the new prepaid plans for its mobile customers applicable from Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Earlier this month, the telecom operator had confirmed to raise tariffs from December 1 along with Vodafone Idea Limited.

Airtel says that its revised plans represent a tariff increase in the range of 50 paise per day to Rs 2.85 per day. However, like Vodafone Idea's new prepaid plans, Airtel has also rolled back the truly unlimited calling to other networks under FUP. These are the new plans from Bharti Airtel:
