Post-paid customers of the two operators in the above-mentioned circles will now have to pay Rs 300 for 1GB 3G data, against Rs 250 earlier for the same amount of data usage.

According to the information available on the website of Airtel, it is clear that the data tariff has been escalated in regions like Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Punjab, Rajasthan and Maharashtra. Idea has hiked charges in Delhi, UP West and Punjab.

A few months back, Vodafone, along with the above mentioned cellular companies, had raised pre-paid tariffs for 2G and 3G services in Delhi by upto 47%.
