Telecom operator Bharti Airtel, in a new move, has hiked the price of its existing recharge plans in the country. Airtel says that it has always tried maintaining that the mobile ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) should be at Rs 200 and ultimately at Rs 300. The company says that this ARPU will provide a reasonable return on capital invested and also allow for a healthy business model. As a result, the plans are now costlier by up to 25%. Some plans have seen a hike of even Rs. 501. These prices will be applicable starting November 26th, 2021.
