Already opened a saving account with Airtel Payment Bank? then deposit some money and you can get free talk time to the value you deposited. Airtel Payments Bank which rolled out its operations in Rajasthan last week has announced an additional benefit on savings account deposits. If you have missed, Airtel Payments Bank already offers an interest rate of 7.25 percent on the deposits in saving the account.
Under the new offer, for every Rupee deposited in an Airtel Payments Bank savings account, customers will get one minute of talk time on their Airtel mobile number. Say you opened a saving account with Airtel Payments Bank and deposited Rs 10,000 to your account. You will then receive Rs 10,000 worth free talk time on your Airtel mobile number.
The talk time value is only for Airtel-to-Airtel calls which can be used to call anywhere in India (local/STD). However, the talk time comes with a validity of 30 days and it only applies to first-time deposits. So, your subsequent money deposit with Airtel Payments Bank Saving account won’t give you the talk time.
