Analysts said other telecom companies may not follow Airtel’s decision immediately
Bharti Airtel’s decision on Monday to discontinue its Rs 99 recharge plan in the Haryana and Odisha circles could be a precursor to the telecommunications (telecom) company hiking tariffs in some months, according to analysts.
The Rs 99 segment forms 7-8 per cent of the overall mobile revenue for Airtel, which last hiked tariffs a year ago.
Analysts say the company’s latest move could be a way of gauging the impact on the low-end 2G segment that such cheap plans typically serve.
