Advertising Standards Council of India has found three advertisements put out by Airtel to be misleading by promising consumers more than they actually get. It says in its website:

. Bharti Airtel Ltd . (Airtel 29 INR for 1 month): The advertisement’s claim, “Enjoy internet for the full month at just Rs.29”, is misleading by ambiguity and omission as 75 MB being given at that cost may not last for a month .
