The Airtel has extended the pre-paid pack validity for over 80 million customers till April 17. All these customers will continue to get incoming calls on their Airtel mobile numbers even after the validity of their plan is exhausted.

The telecom company will also credit an additional Rs 10 of talk time in the pre-paid accounts of all these 80 million customers to enable them to make calls or send SMS and therefore stay connected with their loved ones.
