Airtel has introduced a new scheme for prepaid users, it’s called Airtel Happy Hours. Under this scheme prepaid customers will get 50% of the data back when they consume data between 3 AM to 5 AM. Users can also schedule downloaded during the happy hours time and reap the benefit.

3AM to 5AM is the time when most users are offline. Airtel’s Happy Hour wants users to use the data pack between 3AM to 5AM and whatever data is consumed during that time, Airtel will give 50% back.

There is no subscription required; it is active by default to all Prepad customers. Do note that happy hours will not apply to night data packs. If a user had not subscribed to any data pack they will still get 50% data based on charging of Rs. 0.4p/10kb.

Airtel is also encouraging app developers to integrate Airtel Happy Hours on their app so as to give user option to auto download during the happy hours time, and get the benefit. The company has released API for developers.
