    This is a welcome decision by Airtel. But I believe this decision is also prompted by company;s desire to get ready for its tariff war with Reliance Jio, the telecom wing of Reliance Industries Ltd. Reliance Jio is expected to launch its much awaited 4G service by December, 2015.

      I feel, This is to safe guard the charges that are going to be introduced by TRAI on call drops. Its a strategic decision by AIRTEL to avoid, as the prepaid customers are huge in base. Operational hles will be more than business benefits from prepaid section whose customer base is much more than post paid.
