“Under the partnership, the Karbonn A40 Indian now comes at an effective price of just Rs. 1,399 (compared to its current market price of approximately Rs. 3,499). The 4G smartphone is bundled with a monthly pack of Rs. 169 from Airtel, which offers generous data and calling benefit.”
‘Mera Pehla 4G Smartphone’ (also called ‘My First Smartphone’) initiative by Airtel and Karbon, is aimed at “enabling every Indian to buy a 4G smartphone and get on to the digital superhighway,” says company.
The customer needs to make a down payment of Rs. 2,899 for the 4G smartphone and make 36 continuous monthly recharges of Rs 169. The customer will get a cash refund of Rs 500 after 18 months and another Rs. 1,000 after 36 months, taking the total cash benefit to Rs 1,500, the company said.
“In case the customer does not wish to opt for the Rs 169 bundled plan, she/he has the flexibility of doing recharges of any denomination and validity as per individual requirements. However, to claim the cash refund benefit, recharges worth Rs 3,000 must be done within the first 18 months (to claim the first refund installment of Rs 500) and another Rs 3,000 over the next 18 months (to claim the second refund installment of Rs 1,000),” it added.
