Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Airtel to provide free recharge packs, double benefits to low-income customers impacted by COVID-19 | Digit


Airtel has announced special benefits for its low-income customers to help them stay connected to their loved ones in the COVID-19 pandemic. The company has revealed free recharge packs and double benefits offers for over 55 million low-income customers on its network. The second wave of the Coronavirus pandemic has hit most people and households and put low-income people at risk. Staying connected virtually is the only option for many people but it can put some burden on low-income groups.

Airtel has revealed that it is offering benefits worth Rs 270 crore to help its low-income customers who are impacted by the COVID-19 in India. Airtel is providing a free recharge pack of Rs 49 to over 55 million low-income customers on its network, majorly in rural areas. The Rs 49 recharge pack will provide a talk time of Rs 38 and 100MB data with a validity of 28 days. 

Moreover, Airtel has also announced double benefits for its prepaid customers. The Airtel prepaid recharge of Rs 79 will now provide double the benefits to users. The recharge pack worth Rs 79 offers a talk time of Rs 128, 200MB data usage and allows local/STD/landline calls at 60p per minute. This recharge plan comes with a validity of 28 days.

Airtel has stated in the official press release that these benefits will be available to over 55 million of its low-income customers in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, Jio also recently announced that JioPhone users in India will receive 300 minutes worth of calling every month for free during the COVID-19 pandemic. This will come as a sigh of relief for many JioPhone users who have been unable to recharge their phones due to the pandemic. Jio has also announced that it will provide free plans to all JioPhone users who recharge. If a JioPhone user recharges with a Rs 75 plan, they will get an additional Rs 75 for free.
