The telecom sphere is heating up day by day – thanks to the tariff-storm caused by Jio. All of the telcos have had to reduce their tariffs to all time low to tackle Jio. Thanks to the attractive plans offering Free Calls, SMS and Data that are on offer by Jio. Even now, users can subscribe to Jio’s Prime plan at Rs 99 and reap the benefits of these offers. One of the latest entrant to the offer list is the 30GB Free data offered by Airtel. Yes you heard it Airtel is providing 30GB free data to all its postpaid customers.
How to get 30GB free Data from Airtel
To avail the 30GB Free data from Airtel, the user has to first ensure that he/she is a postpaid user and have a 4G enabled smart phone. This offer sadly is only for Airtel’s Post Paid customers. So hard luck if you are a pre paid customer (You can enjoy their Rs 349 recharge that offers free calls and SMSs) The catch however here is that, you will get only 10GB of data every month for 3 months. In a way there is a cap in place for 10GB every month. And this totals to 30GB in 3 months. Further the offer period is from 13th March to 31st March only. So better claim it before it expires !
If you are an Airtel postpaid user, you simply need to do the following:
- Download the My Airtel App from the app store and Log In
- Once logged in, you should see “Claim Free Data” banner – as shown in the image above
- Click the banner and it should tell you that you have successfully claimed it
- Your data balance should be updated

They asked my to send a SMS – “Surprise” to 121 and check the response. When I did that I got the response “Sorry you don’t have any offers for this mobile” This made things worse. Again, I tweeted the same thing to the team, and they logged a complaint. And just a while back, I received a confirmation that my 30GB Free data pack will be activated in 24hrs
