Lifetime recharges are becoming popular among the operators as it gives them an opportunity to gain a minimum amount from them and also retain them to some extent. Aircel is providing the lifetime options to its existing users at Rs.97.
The ERC97 pack is what would provide them with lifetime validity. For those who are new to the service provider can opt for the lifetime validity plan by paying Rs.199 and getting the same benefits. However the cheap price does not get you much as calls and SMS’s (Local) are quite unattractive at Re.1 and STD calls at Rs.1.5
This could be sorted by opting for one of the many packs being offered by the oprtaor to reduce the calling and SMS rates. Basically the plan tries to get consumers in with a cheap price tag and then make them spend more by helping them cut costs. The plan is available in the Tamil Nadu and Chennai.
