Since the corona outbreak hit the country in March 2020, children's schools have been closed and they must take online education.

Since the corona outbreak hit the country in March 2020, children’s schools have been closed and they must take online education. College and other educational institution students were also required to take online programmes. Due to the fear of Corona, many companies’ employees are still doing their work from home via the internet.

Both for youngsters (Online Classes) and for employees (Work from Home) are impossible without data. People’s cellphone bills had also soared as a result of online education and employment from home. However, after November 25, i.e. tomorrow, the people’s budget will worsen even further. Because Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea have announced prepaid mobile rate increases of 20 to 25 percent.

As a result, conversing on a cell phone and surfing the web on a mobile laptop have become prohibitively expensive. In addition, you’ll have to spend extra money on data for your children’s online classes and work from home.

How much did Prepaid Plan Costs?

Both Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea used to charge Rs 79 for the cheapest prepaid cellphone tariff plan with a 28-day validity, but now you’ll have to pay Rs 99 after the cost was increased. At the same time, the Rs 149 prepaid package with a 28-day validity period would now cost Rs 179. The Rs 219 prepaid package with a 28-day validity period would now cost Airtel Rs 265 and Vodafone Idea Rs 269, respectively. This package includes 100 SMS per day and 1 GB of bandwidth per day. And, whereas Vodafone Idea used to charge Rs 2399 for a prepaid plan with a 365-day validity, it now has to pay Rs 2899, and Airtel used to charge Rs 2498, but now has to pay Rs 2999.

Data is too Expensive

The most data is used by children (Online Classes) and people who work from home. Previously, 48 rupees were required to obtain a 3 GB data top-up package, but now 58 rupees are required. Previously, paying Rs 98 for a 12 GB top-up plan was required, but now it will be required to pay Rs 118. You used to have to pay Rs 298 for a 50 GB top-up plan, but now you have to pay Rs 301. And you used to have to pay Rs 351 for a 100 GB top-up data package, but now you have to spend Rs 418.

Another hit of Inflation

The common man was equally concerned about the high cost of gasoline, diesel, and vegetables, as well as the high cost of edible oil. Following the rise in the cost of mobile phones, cellphone recharge has also risen in price.
