Telecom major Bharti Airtel has declared a special offer for its prepaid users with 1GB data per day for a period of 84 days at Rs. 399.

Jio’s free calls offer and data tariffs have increased competition in the telecom section, wherein mandatory players are announcing new deals every other day, say some analysts. Many other telecom operators have also revised their existing data offers and announced new offers in a bid to their protect market share.
