Buying a SIM card in India

Local SIM Cards: Currently, there are seven major mobile phone providers in India. The major mobile operators in India are Airtel, Vodafone, Jio and BSNL. Each of these operators offers prepaid and postpaid services, as well as 4G coverage and data packages.

Visitors to India can purchase a local SIM card from any of these operators, either at the airport upon arrival or at any of the operator’s retail outlets. You will need to provide proof of identity and address, such as a passport and visa, to purchase a SIM card.

To get a prepaid SIM card in India as a foreigner you’ll probably need to make a copy of the photo/name page of your passport, a copy of the Indian visa page in your passport (or your OCI card), and a passport-sized picture as well.  You will need to present these, along with your original passport document, to the SIM vendor. Get proof of where you’re staying in India. While for many vendors a visiting card of a hotel may be enough or a hotel reservation.

The average price of a prepaid SIM card in India is around 200-300 rupees (approximately $2.50-$4), and it is possible to purchase data packages and top-up credit as needed.

When purchasing a sim card, it is recommended to avoid buying an expensive one at the airport or in the last minute, as prices tend to be higher and you may be limited in your options.  Travel to india?
