Kulkarni said changing postpaid plans is likely to improve Airtel’s revenue and more importantly it could help eliminate inactive SIMs or SIMs that are pretty much active and don’t necessarily add to a significant portion of income.

“It’s hard to assess, I would say, a 1% improvement in overall ARPU (average revenue per user) or a 1.50% gain is a fair assessment, but it is still early to appeal to this. number, “he added.

Axis Securities CIO expects changes in prepaid plans as this is the largest segment and a review may have a bigger impact on Airtel’s overall numbers.
