Reliance Jio revises its Plans, Offers 84GB Data for ₹399 with 84 Days Validity
Reliance Jio, the only VoLTE-only mobile network operator in India, has revamped its existing plans and unveiled a new ₹399 plan that offers 84GB data for a period of 84 days.
Reliance Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan Upgraded Plans:
As per the telecom analysts, the new ₹399 plan will surely disrupt the market which is heading towards a consolidated phase. The new ₹399 plan is for JioPrime subscribers where the user can access 1GB daily data with a validity of 84 days. This is same as that of the existing ₹309 offering by Jio. In the case of the postpaid subscribers, the benefit is extended for 90 days. That means 90GB data for 90 days with a price tag of ₹399.
It is to be noted that Reliance Jio’s popular plan Dhan Dhana Dhan Offer will end on July 15th and the subscribers should recharge with ₹309 or ₹509 plan to continue the existing benefits. However, the teleco launched this new ₹399 scheme to disrupt the market with its aggressive pricing strategy.
Additionally, the company announced ₹349 plan that offers 20GB of data with 56 days of validity. It is to be noted that there’s no concept of daily data in this ₹349 plan.
While coming back to the revision of plans, starting July 15th the existing ₹309 and ₹509 plans will offer 1GB of daily data and 2GB daily data respectively with a validity of 56 days. Only the validity of the plans has been changed from 28 to 56 days. In the case of postpaid subscribers, the benefit is extended for 60 days.
Extra 30GB and Extra 30 Days Validity:
Interestingly, there are some minor revisions to the higher plans as well. Earlier, the 999 plan used to provide 60GB data for 60 days. This has been changed with an offer of 90GB data for 90 days. Similarly, the ₹1999 plan used to offer 125GB for 90 days and now it offers 155GB with a validity of 120 days.
The premium plans including ₹4999 and the ₹9999 plan will now offer 380GB and 780GB for 210 and 390 days respectively. Clearly, one can observe that these newly revised plans come with an extra 30GB data and extra 30 days validity.
An another Masterstroke from Reliance Jio:
It is to be noted that all these plans are valid for JioPrime subscribers and there’s no mention of Jio non-Prime members. The USP of Reliance Jio is its unlimited free voice calls and free access to its premium apps.
The new Reliance Jio ₹399 plan looks attractive and will definitely hamper the share of Airtel, Vodafone and Idea Cellular. Let’s wait for the counter strategy of these incumbent telecom players
