Before the tariff hike, Airtel used to offer Life Insurance on its Rs 249 prepaid plan and Rs 599 prepaid plan. With the introduction of this new plan, Airtel is now offering Life Insurance on two of its plans post tariff hike. The latest plan sits alongside the existing 16 unlimited prepaid plans taking the count to 17.
