Jio cuts tariff by Rs

Data rates fall further as Jio intensifies war Jio cuts tariff by Rs. 50; data limit raised

These are the price points of the 1GB data per day plan, meaning consumers are essentially getting 50 percent more data at roughly the same price.

To counter Reliance Jio, Airtel has upgraded the validity on its Rs 448 and Rs 509 recharge plans. However, in most of the circles such as Bihar, Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, etc., the company is still offering old plans. Notably, Airtel has revised its Rs 448 and Rs 509 prepaid plans to take on Jio, which now come with a longer validity period.

In what is the lowest-ever industry tariff, its 1GB monthly pack is priced at Rs 149.


Airtel has chose to also provide unlimited calling facility to its users but with "terms and conditions"; voice calls limited to 300 minutes per day and 1200 minutes per week. Reliance Jio offers unlimited voice calls, roaming and STD, access to MyJio apps and unlimited SMS for the duration of any plan. Hopefully, Vodafone makes these changes on a pan-India in the coming days. Jio's Rs 498 plan offers 136GB in all at 1.5GB per day for 91 days. The company has introduced special 1.5GB per day data plans.

Most of the data plans have either been made cheaper by Rs 50 or they now provide 50 per cent more data compared to the outgoing plans. The company offers 28GB data for 28 days. The plan will now offer 1GB data daily for a month (28 days). FUP or daily data limit is 1GB. The plan also offers unlimited local and STD calls with unlimited SMS. In the past few weeks, operators have started offering more data without raising prices on certain popular recharge packs, so this move can be seen as a means to keep Jio users from moving to other networks.

The company's Rs 509 gives users 1GB data per day for 84 days, which means the user gets a total of 84GB. This plan was launched to cater to the demand of high-data-consuming users.
