Airtel, Vodafone Idea shares plunge after Jio unveils new PostPaid plans.

After Jio unveiled new postpaid plans with loads of benefits such as free Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Hotstar subscription among other benefits, the shares of telecom majors Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea Ltd (VIL) were under pressure on Wednesday.

Around 1.50 pm., shares of Bharti Airtel on the BSE were trading at Rs 433.50, lower by Rs 37.55 or 7.97 per cent from its previous close.

Vodafone Idea shares were trading at Rs 9.32, lower by 93 paise or 9.07 per cent from its previous close.

With its competitive pricing in the prepaid segment, Jio has already eroded the subscriber base of both the incumbent players over the past four years.
