New Delhi, Jul 10 (PTI) Bharti Airtel will invest Rs 2,000 crore to enhance customer services under which its post-paid subscribers will be able to rollover unused mobile data to next billing cycle and get mobiles repaired on monthly payment starting at Rs 49.
The telecom major announced that it will invest Rs 2,000 crore over three years under Project Next to revamp customer touch points — Airtel stores and mobile application, and enhance post paid customer experience.
“This is first step towards transforming Airtel into a digital services provider. Over the next three years, we are planning to invest Rs 2,000 crore on Project Next to upgrade our touch points and services,” Gopal Vittal, MD and CEO for India South Asia, Bharti Airtel said here.
Airtel’s investment will be spread across its 2,500 branded stores where a customer will be able to create its own plan and experience services of the company.
The company is providing single bill option for families under which its post-paid customer can share post paid plan with members of the family against monthly charge of Rs 199. However, the usage will be limited to the existing plan of the customer who will add other members.
“A customer can add any number of the family member in his plan from My Airtel App,” Sarang Kanade, Director for Customer Experience, Bharti Airtel said.
Airtel has launched “The Security Promise” scheme under which it will provide free repair service of liquid or accidentally damaged mobile phones priced below Rs 18,000 at Rs 49 and above Rs 18,000 at Rs 99 monthly rental. The security scheme will also provide protection from online threats.
From August 1, under the project, all Airtel postpaid customers will be able to carry forward their unused monthly data quota to the next billing cycle. This would, however, be limited to 200 gigabyte of accumulated data.
