Second comes,Vodafone. They have a tie up with Bill Desk payment gateway and allow recharging their phone from their own web site. One of the major plus point is you can select vouchers plus you will be able to see the validity, talk time and the tax before buying a coupon. Web site states that it will take at least 15 Minutes to recharge but the service is quite fast.
