Recharge Airtel Prepaid Online

Did you know you can recharge your Prepaid Mobile connection with Citibank/ICICI ?

Be Aware, that it is harldly a good idea. Do it only when you have no other option. They charged me Rs.324 for a ~Rs.150 recharge, with a 15 day validity. Hardly an offer I would like. ( Also, it didn’t extend the validity, it just covered the validity from the day I recharged.) Sucks !

Here is how you go about it.
- You need to login to your online banking service.
- You should have an option that reads, ‘Recharge Prepaid Mobile’.
- Enter your mobile number.
- Select your mobile phone service provider, and the Amount you want to recharge for (there will be a minimum).

You can recharge anyones phone ( read friends/family using this service ).

I hope Airtel/Hutch/Idea/BSNL and all other service providers give out better deals(offers) for people who are trying to reach out to them online. Whoever gets there sooner, will enjoy success with subscribers. After all, sonner than later, everyone is going to be online ! :)

This online recharge is available with most leading banks ( Citbank/ICICI/HDFC etc. ) and most service providers ( Airtel/Hutch/Idea etc. )

Update:

A few other websites have cropped up since I last wrote this post.

You can recharge your phones here:

www.rechargeonline.in

www.fastrecharge.com

www.apnabill.com

www.easymobilerecharge.com

www.rechargetoday.com

Do let me know what you guys think of these services.

    Citibank sucks, I recharge my cell(idea) with ICICI bank, usually the transaction completes in 15 mins, and ICICI bank never charged more. But may change its policy soon.

    But once the recharge process is completed, idea sends no message.

    I did get a message, saying it was recharged though.
    The funny part was, they did not inform me what package I was getting.
    All they said, was the minimum recharge was for Rs.324 and thats all.
    Also, no info regarding this could be found on the Airtel website.

    Thanx Sai,
    I tried rechargetoday.com, but no respose since an hr, after a confirmation mail of order. Are you aware how long does it take to process. ?

    Hi Pankaj,

    You might have not transferred money to their Netbanking account & the order might be pending for payment from your end.

    Funds must be transferred manually. I had an query with them regarding this and they said that no bank is offerring direct netbanking transfers as many of the banks themself have this mobile recharge service. So RechargeToday.com is providing bank transfers mannually.

    I have recharged earlier for Rs.333 Airtel and in 3 min i got the recharge on my mobile after tranfering payment from my axis bank.

    Thanx Sai,
    yes this was the case as you suspected. Actually I thought I would be asked for netbanking through some links. I was later assisted by the rechargetoday sales team to know about the complete process, how it works. Thanks a lot agian.

    We probably need to stick to banks or cellular service provider, however bad their service may be, for security.

    I always use HDFC bank online refill for my Airtel.
    Its free and its safe.

    In case of failure transaction they credit the money back to my account without fail. I am always using it since I have become an HDFC bank customer.

    I have also used ICICI bank before. Its also safe and fast. But I have not used it for last one and half years, so don’t know it’s current hazards.

    I recharged through AirTel online service for Rs.121. Although the amount was debited in my ICICI account, the amount did not get increased in my prepaid balance. This happened earlier also and also when I recharged my TataSky account thro ICICI. Better to do such transactions manually.

    Please note that there all the websites that have been stated here who claim that they recharge your mobie are fraud. If you want to recharge your prepaid mobile use websites of banks such as hdfc, icici, etc. or use service provider websites like airtel, idea, vodafone, etc.
    If you read some of the comments posted on this blog you will notice that some people have started their own websites and promoting it through different names of people.
    Don’t be a victim of this fraud. Moreover there are plenty of shops who have recharge cards. Why would you want recharge online in the first place.
