Jio Recharge Plan: In competition with other telecom service providers like Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea, Reliance Jio has also announced a hike in its tariffs to be in effect from 6th December 2019. The popular shot by Jio was their “All-in-one” plans, which includes unlimited data and Jio to Jio free calling apart from this there were many other benefits like free SMS services and much more. However, this amenity has now become questionable with the increase in prices of Jio plans.
The major or noticeable amendments are:
- All in one tariff range from Rs 199 per month to Rs 2,199 for a year.
- The plans will now provide 1.5 GB data per day instead of 2GB earlier and unlimited Jio to Jio Calling.
With new plans in the market, the Jio users will have to pay as per followings tariffs from December 6th, 2019
- For Rs 199 plan validity is 28 days
- For Rs 399 plan validity is 56 days
- For Rs 555 plan validity is 84 days
- & For Rs 2,199 plan validity is 365 days
This hike in tariffs is reported as around 40% increase, but for this, the company says that this 40% increase in prices will prove to give 300% more benefits to the customers.
Keeping in mind its valuable customers the company has come up with a solution to liberal the Jio usage to its customers at least for a year. Jio has asked users to deck their Jio account with a recharge plan of Rs 444 (one among the currently running plans) four times. Doing so users can get the full advantage of the old recharge plans.
As if you recharge your Jio account with Rs 444 plan 4 times then this will give you 2GB data per day for 366 days that is for a year till 2020. The company also ensures that once your Rs444 recharge finishes than only the second plan will get activated. This way Reliance Jio has again won the hearts at least for a year we guess!
Talking about the competitors, Airtel has shown a hike of around 47%, which is highest among its peers whereas Vodafone Idea’s new tariffs are now available with the validity periods of 2.28,84 and 365 days. However, Airtel users will now get 1.5GB per day with is 50% more than earlier, still, the highest percentage increase has still made Jio be the favourite among the users.
