    Default Airtel Talk time Auto Credit

    Airtel users who have a balance below Rs5 can now request for a credit on their balance of Rs10. At first this was a service which was done by request but now its an automated service, which credits a users balance with Rs10 if the balance is under Rs5. The service can be activated using USSD or IVR.

    USSD Code

    For activation of the service: *141*4#.

    For deactivation of the service: *141*559#.

    That should save a few people who are not in a position to recharge instantly and need to make an urgent phone call only to find that their credit is too low for the call.

    but what is the real cost of this service? i.e. how much will eventually be deducted when you recharge next time?

    Nice way for Airtel to make some money.
    panchabhut - I guess an additional Rs5-Rs10 would be deducted in total when you get a recharge done.

    IVR stands for interactive voice response. It is automated system which gives you different options and responds with a voice instead of text option like you get in USSD.

    There would be a lot of students who would use this service, as students are the ones who use a lot of balance and easily run out of it.

    Well, in order to get the credit from Airtel what all you need to do is sending the USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) code. For Manually you need to send *141*10# or if you want more credit you can simple enter the amount like *141*30# you can go by 50 that's the maximum credit limited offered by Airtel if you are number old enough or using it from last few years. I am using my number from last 7 months and can get only 10 Rupees of credit but one of my friends using their number form last 2 years and can easily get the credit of Rupees 50. I found it pretty simple even if you don't want to activate the service but manually can do it anytime, if you take 10 Rupees of credit it will deduct later on with the extra fee like you will have to pay 12 Rupees for 10 or 55 Rupees for 50. It gets deduct with 24 hrs, from the balance account automatically (Airtel Prepaid)

    the credit you get depends mostly on your daily usage and not on how long you have used the service. for instance, a person who uses rupees 20 daily can easily get a rupees 20 worth of credit.

    That is a news to me. Thanks for the updation.

    I think nowadays this facility is available with almost all mobile connections. I use Idea and you need to send a request for getting the so called talk-time loan and they will deduct the amount when you recharge your connection next time. But I was not aware that the loan amount is based on your average usage.

    But I must say it is a very good feature and very convenient in times of emergency.
