From July 2016, the internet users are searching the new term Rel JIO free SIM buy online to get free unlimited 4G data for 90 days with speed upto 20mbps speed in real time. Due to JIO SIM available for free for most of 4G android smartphone, the india’s No.1 telecom company Airtel sinking its data recharge plans. Finally Airtel launched mega saver pack with long term validity for internet user to get 1GB, 2GB and 5GB for low price.

Airtel Mega Saver Packs

To get your data for 180 days of validity have to recharge Rs.748 or Rs.747 differ from state to state and get instant 1G data benefit for 28 days and recharge for Rs. 99 get 1GB and Rs. 259 get 2.5GB for 28 days of validity.

All data benefits are 3G/4G circles only

So if you calculate monthly pack price for 1 year validity pack

Average monthly price: 1498/12= Rs. 125 + 259= Rs. 384 for 5GB data or Rs.643 for 10GB data for 28 days only

This is good move by Airtel to retain their customer ahead of Jio launch, because most of the customers are ready to port to Rel JIO via MNP offers.

We all are waiting to get commercial Rel Jio launch date as well as full list talktime, 4G data Tariff plan and MNP offers from RJIL.


  • Airtel has not enabled mobile prepaid recharge app (1gb@53) yet, even after paying 1498 offer plan in the app. App only shows regular recharge values (1gb@155, 2gb@245), etc.. Called up customer care and she was not able to explain how I can make new recharges at discounted price, after buying the yearly 1498 pack.

  • It works..No issues..I recently recharged this value and it seems fine.But there is a trap.As far as i know they have deactivated family and friends sharing option for this scheme..So you can not share the data to other 4 users..They have smartly made the plan.

  • To get this offer in some states, Dont use sim cars on data card (or) modem. Please use the sim in 3g mobile and recharge it. still you cant use New sim card and recharge that.

  • Tell me one thing.. can i carry forward the initial 6gb which they give if i recharge for 53 rupees 1 gb? Yes or no? Hav anyone tried it?

  • Airtel app is very poor. They donot update it seems. I could not recharge for 1GB for the Mega saver pack. Why should we have airtel app if we go and recharge in retail shop?

  • Whoever has given the details above related to the data pack, please tell everyone (incl me) how to recharge 1GB @rs 53 using airtel app. its inconvenient going to the retail shop everytime. For 1GB, 2GB, 5GB @ rs 53, 97, 252 there are other data offers corresponding. if unfortunately instead of 1GB validity for 1 yr, we get 200 MB for a month @ 53 as given in the app, then it’ll be a big loss for us. The customer service should at least change the amount ; shouldn’t give 2 different offers for the same cost.

    • Go for 95rs 2gb.Don’t get panic after receiving usual plan data credit message. I use Paytm and recharge it now.check balance post recharge using *121*2#

  • It works. just follow the steps carefully to recharge using Airtel app. First open your Airtel app but don’t go the best plans or browse my plans offer instead tap on the general Recharge button, just like when you Recharge some other non Airtel mobile number … click on the Recharge portal enter your mobile number manually, again don’t go to my plans button but click on Recharge now and enter the Recharge amount eg. Rs. 53 manually …that’s it!!!!

    To carry forward the remaining 3G/4G balance always Recharge before the expiry date … it works here as well and yes that thing is true that you cannot share this Airtel Pack with any other family member. In that case try using hotspot.

    • UPDATE :
      Regarding my second para about carrying forward unused balance, you cannot carry forward the initial 10GB data or any before hand… This is because the 1gb @ 51/- etc. economic advantage plan starts actually after the exhaustion of data limit/period (AFAIK till now), so you will loose any GB data after 28 days of this recharge. If any prior data was accumulated, you will lose it too. Airtel fools customer, because they are too smart.
      However, unless airtel becomes oversmart, I think you will re-accumulate your stash with a fresh start using this economical recharge. In the link I post, its clearly mentioned that there is no restriction on the number of recharges with these amounts. So till then.. a new hope.
      I shall keep updating more truths regarding the 1498 pack, this is something airtel will never tell u. stay tuned and also experiment yourself.
