How to convert Airtel Pospaid to Prepaid

By

There are many Airtel Postpaid users who find themselves stuck using the Postpaid Plan of Airtel. It is a known fact that Airtel comes up with new offers frequently for Pre-paid users. Airtel does that to attract new prepaid customers and retain the old customers. It is also a fact that Airtel doesn’t provide such offers to post-paid users. Postpaid users have fixed monthly billing. The tax component on postpaid bill feels very heavy on pocket while using Postpaid connection. The tax component is also there in Prepaid Plans but they are priced in such a way that it doesn’t pinch you.
