The telecom operators provide free data benefits to all the prepaid users and also extends the bill payment date for all postpaid users, let’s check out all the offers of the major telecom operators in detail.
Offers for the victims of Kerala floods
Let’s start with Airtel, the company offers auto-approved talktime of rupees ₹30, which people can use for the voice calls and it will be automatically credited to their balance. However, users need to repay it once the situation comes to normal. Airtel is also giving 1 GB of data with the validity of 7 days and the offer starts between 17th and 19th of August. Moreover, users of Kerala can also able to make free calls between Airtel to Airtel and free STD calls that is also between Airtel to Airtel.
Furthermore, Airtel is also extending the bill payment date of postpaid users along with Airtel broadband and postpaid users will also get a free Wi-Fi calling facility. That said, due to the floods the state is also facing the power disruption and that’s why the telecom company gives the opportunity to charge the users phone at selected Airtel stores in Ernakulam, Thiruvananthapuram, Kottayam, Kannur, Malappuram, Calicut, and Thrissur.
The telecom giant Vodafone is also giving ₹30 talktime to the users, but they need to activate it by sending SMS in this format; CREDIT to 144 or call *130*1#. Vodafone will also give free 1 GB of data to all the users of the state, and the network also extends the due date of the bill payments for all the postpaid users.
The Idea will also give 1 GB of extra data with the validity of 7 days and it will also give a talk time credit worth ₹10 and the prepaid users need to call *150*150# to get the amount. The postpaid users will also get an extension for the bill payments.
The newbie of the telecom sector, offers free unlimited voice calls and data to all the users of the Kerala floods, and the company gives the benefit for the seven days. I would say Jio is really doing well because a small amount will not fulfill the needs. As people need to call various people to get a help, so giving unlimited calling facility will definitely help all the users who are stuck in this unseen and unexperienced floods.
The state-run telecom operator gives free talktime of 20 minutes daily and 100 SMS facilities to all the people for the next week.
