Are you looking for a way to transfer Main Balance from one Airtel number to another? this need can arise in many situations – when your friend, son, daughter, sister, mother or father suddenly are out of balance and ask you get a recharge done for them but you are in a situation where you cannot do online recharge or go out and get it done from a merchant. In such situations this method is very useful as you can instantly transfer your account balance to another airtel number and give them talk time.
If you are looking to transfer balance to a number from another network, it is not possible as Airtel does not allow transfer of balance to other networks.
Steps to Transfer Balance from Airtel to Airtel number:
Note: The Transfer is not free as Airtel charges a small amount for transfer of balance from one user to another.
Step 1: Dial *141# from the Airtel number you want to transfer the amount
Step 2: You will be getting a pop up window as shown in the image below with the various options – 1. Share Talktime, 2. Take Adv internet etc.
Step 3: Enter or Type “1” (Share Talk time) and click on “Send ” and wait
Step 4: Now you need to enter the amount which you want to transfer between Rs. 5 and Rs. 40 and press Next.
Note: Minimum amount you can transfer is Rs. 5 and maximum amount is Rs. 40, you can transfer or share talktime up to 5 times in a 30 days period.
Step 5: Now you can see the service charge which will be taken by Airtel to transfer the amount.
Step 6: You be asked to enter the Airtel Mobile number (prepaid) to which you wish to transfer the amount.

This method has been very helpful for me while transferring amount to my mother or sister, who ask for a recharge out of the blue and sometimes even Paytm, Freecharge and other online recharge options act up and do not work. Make sure you enter the correct Airtel number to which you are transferring the amount as there is no way to reverse the transfer.
