Plan's Validity Reduced as Tariff Revision Goes Official

Reliance Jio Logo

The Rs. 399 pack will provide less validity (and thus less data) to consumers, down from 84 days to 70 days.

Mumbai: Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Jio's decision to hike tariff by 15 to 20 per cent has possibly finally given incumbents like Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India and Idea Cellular the much-needed breathing space to raise their prices, say analysts.

The most expensive Rs 4999 one grants customers 350GB of data with no daily limits. You will also get free calls and SMSes and free Jio apps subscription as well. The Company has reduced the validity of Rs 399 pack from 84 to 70 days. These changes are effective starting today. Now when it comes to premium plans, the offering there has also been decreased. Apart from revamping the offerings, Jio has also removed a few tariff plans like the Rs 309, Rs 349, Rs 19 and a few others and has instead introduced some new plans like the Rs 459 plan. Earlier the validity of 399 plan of Jio was 84 days. This means that people will get 70GB of 4G data instead of 84GB in all.

The Rs 999 plan which, earlier, offered 90 GB of 4G data will now offer 60 GB high-speed data for 3 months. People will have to pay Rs 400 as security deposit. This is probably done to improve the network and offer high-speed internet services.

Now, let's compare the new plans with the old ones and see what Jio has really changed. Under this plan, the customer will get that benefits what they have been getting under Rs. 399 pack. The cheapest prepaid plan is a Rs 52 one which serves up 1.05GB of data for 7 days, capped at 150MB per day.

Rs 1999 plan: The Rs 1999 plan is now offering 125GB of 4G data along with unlimited voice calling services and SMSes both local and STD.

Earlier this week, Reliance Jio raised prices of some of its plans. The daily limit cap on the data is 0.15 GB. We'll have to wait and see whether the company's quick growth will maintain the same levels now that its plans have gone from a free for all to a more sober system. People on this plan will be charged for roaming outgoing calls. Under this plan, Jio earlier offered 2GB of 4G data along with unlimited voice calling facility for 28 days. It comes with 1GB data per day and the other freebies and now this plan is valid for 49 days. These small value recharge packs come with daily or weekly validity.

Airtel's Rs 799 and Rs 999 plans offer 40GB and 50GB data respectively. In this case, Jio has increased the validity.
