Airtel Best Minimum Recharge Plan for Validity Extension
As we mentioned above, Rs. 35 recharge plan is the best available recharge to increase the validity. In a quick look, people might think that Rs. 23 plan will be the cheapest plan. But that is not the case. The thing is that with Rs. 35 recharge, users will get 28 days validity along with Rs. 26.66 talk time. Here, once the 28-day validity is over, Airtel will automatically deduct Rs. 23 from the users talk time and extend the validity for another 28 days.
So in short, users will get 56 validity for a single Rs. 35 recharge whereas user needs to recharge 23 vouchers two times to get 56 days validity in other cases. Since Rs. 23 recharge is not providing any talk time value. It is also noted that a talk time of Rs. 23 is necessary to automatically extend the validity by Rs. 23 deduction. Otherwise, you need to recharge again. So keep the talk time unused in the account.
In this way, effectively users just need to pay Rs. 17.5 every 28 days to extend the validity of their Airtel SIM which is the best and cheapest method.
