The increase in tariffs ranges from Rs 10 to Rs 501 for both companies. Vi and Airtel have been struggling ever since Reliance Jio entered the scene with ultra-low plans, triggering a price war.

Airtel vs Vodafone Idea: Revised prepaid tariffs and plans after recent hikes
Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea revised their prepaid plans and announced a hike in tariffs this week. The move from two of the three major private telecom players in India aims at increasing the average revenue per user (ARPU), which they say will ease pressure on the telecom industry. India’s telecom sector has been struggling ever since Reliance Jio entered the scene and introduced ultra-low tariff plans, triggering a price war.
“The new plans will start the process of ARPU improvement and help address financial stress faced by the industry,” Vodafone Idea said.
“Bharti Airtel has always maintained that the mobile average revenue per user needs to be at Rs 200 and ultimately at Rs 300, so as to provide a reasonable return on capital that allows for a financially healthy business model,” added Airtel.
