No Free Incoming Calls

No Free Incoming Calls: One of the popular telecom networks in India, Airtel, Vodafone, and Idea launch paid Incoming call plans to stabilize their network in this crucial telecom war in India.

After the huge Jio Strome in India, other telecom industries like Airtel, Vodafone, and Idea are facing a big financial crisis in the past 12 months. We have already witnessed this issue in Aircel Telecommunication, now they are out of the market.

In order to tackle this market battle one of the Top telecom industry in India AIRTEL going to implement paid incoming calls schemes to their customers sooner or later this year.

Paid Incoming Call Plans

This announcement may be ridiculous to you, But yes, You can't use your Airtel, Vodafone or idea sim as a second sim and just only for incoming calls. You need to recharge your passive sim in order to get incoming calls, bank messages, OTP messages, and so on.


One of the main reason to roll out their paid call scheme is million number of sims are not recharged for more than six months. people use this sim only for the incoming purpose and they use Jio as a primary mobile number. So, other Non-JioTelecomes companies are deliberately taken this decision to stabilize their company.

Airtel CEO Gopal Vittal said that out of around 33 cr mobile customers that the company has in India, around 10 cr were found to be generating very little revenue for the company. 

We can expect the new recharge plans in the upcoming months and if you fail to recharge for you incoming, initially,  your sim will get disconnected.
