Telecom companies can soon send you a message like a bank when your Monthly Average Balance (MAB) is below the required criteria. In this, you will be asked to recharge your SIM card with the minimum amount, or your number will be closed. Prepaid users should recharge their numbers with Rs 35 in their SIM. However, it is being decided by different subscribers. If not, your SIM can be deactivated.
These rules will not be applicable to postpaid users, because they pay by the end of the month, according to the plan. Talking about prepaid users, almost all companies have launched unlimited plans, whose validity ranges from one month to three months.
According to the report, Airtel and Vodafone users are getting the warning message from the company. It says something like, ‘Notice, your Vodafone number XXXXXXXXXX will stop. Keep the number from being deactivated by doing a minimum recharge of Rs 35. ‘
This message is being sent to Vodafone users who have no minimum balance. Airtel has kept the minimum balance of 35 rupees, while you have to have a minimum balance of Rs 65 for continuing Vodafone SIM.
If you continue to maintain Minimal Balance in your SIM even after getting the message continuously, then companies will send such messages for 15 days. After this, outgoing calls and mobile data will be closed. Even after this, if you do not recharge from the minimum amount, then your incoming call will also be closed. After this, you will receive a message that will tell you how long you can recharge. According to SIM’s validity, you have to reactivate and recharge it.
