Recently, Aircel said that it will offer Rs 100 as cashback if a customer pays a bill worth Rs 200 using the Bharat QR code.
Aircel has also been in news for his upcoming merger with Anil Ambani-owned Reliance Communications (RCom). Last Month, the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) cleared the merger.
RCom and Aircel had signed a definitive document for a proposed merger of their respective wireless businesses on September 14, 2016. Subsequently, the two telecom operators moved all the relevant statutory and regulatory bodies for approval of the merger scheme. The Competition Commission of India gave its approval to the merger scheme in February 2017.
Key telecom operators of the country, including Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and Idea Cellular, have been ramping up their offers with a goal to woo customers as Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Jio continues to have a disruptive effect on the sector. On Tuesday, Jio clocked the highest average data speed for the month of July, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) said. This is the seventh month in a row in which the company has topped the TRAI speed chart.
