Reliance Jio has re-launched the most-sought Rs 98 and Rs 149 prepaid plans for its subscribers. These two popular plans were pulled out by the company last week and a new all-in-one plan with hiked mobile tariffs and limited IUC minutes was announced.
A week since the announcement of the new plan, the growing demand of the previous products in the market led the company to re-launch the popular plans again. Both the new prepaid plans – Rs. 98 & Rs. 149 – are listed on Jio’s official web portal.
A user gets 28 days of validity and 2GB of data with Reliance Jio’s Rs. 98 plan. The plan also offers 300 SMS, complimentary Jio apps, and free unlimited calls to Jio to Jio network for its subscribers. The plan doesn’t include any free IUC minutes in the plan.
Under Reliance Jio’s Rs 149 plan, subscribers receive 1GB per day data. The plan includes free Jio to Jio calling and 300 minutes of Jio to non-Jio FUP minutes. Users get 100SMS per day and complimentary Jio apps subscription. The validity of this plan is 24 days.
The Reliance Jio has announced to re-launch its popular plans shortly after other two telecom operators Airtel and Vodafone Idea announced removing the cap on free outgoing calls to other networks. The two operators had capped outgoing calls to network of other telcos at 1,000 minutes in plans with 28-days validity, 3,000 minutes in 84-days validity and 12,000 minutes in 365 days validity plan respectively.
Reliance Jio has responded to the move saying its new revised plans offer up to 25 per cent higher value than comparable plans of other operators.
“Entitlement for off-net calls in Jio’s ‘All in One Plans’ is more than five times of what an average customer uses as per industry data and consequently, an average Jio customer is unlikely to have to ever pay for off-net calls. We reiterate that Jio plans offer up to 25 per cent higher value than comparable plans of other operators,” said Jio spokesperson.
