Reliance Jio unveils unlimited Rs399 plan for prime members
12 July 2017
Reliance Jio Infocomm Lid on Tuesday announced revised tariff rates, after Reliance Jio's Dhan Dhana Dhan 90-day period came to an end on 9 July. Reliance Jio while revamping earlier plans, has also added some other plans into the mix.
Reliance Jio, the Mukesh Ambani-led telecom venture, said Jio Prime Members can now enjoy unlimited services for 3 months with Rs399 Plan. The earlier launched Rs309 plan will provide 2 months of unlimited Jio services.
The new set of plan benefits will be available from 11 July and will be applicable for all new as well as existing subscribers. As part of these unlimited benefit, customers can enjoy 1GB data per day at 4G speed followed by unlimited at 128 kbps, unlimited local, STD and national roaming voice calls and unlimited national SMS.
Over and above the Prime exclusive plans, Jio is introducing new Every Day More Value (EDMV) plans.
Jio said these plans provide 20 per cent more value than competitors' latest plans.
''Earlier this year, in the month of March, Jio introduced JIO Prime membership programme. Millions of customers enrolled into this membership. These founding members of Jio will also be special and they will continue to get industry-leading tariffs. With the introduction of EDMV plans, Jio customers no longer have to worry if they are getting the best value with Jio,'' a company release stated.
Against the earlier offer of 1GB 4G data per day for 84 days on first recharge for just Rs309, Reliance Jio is now offering 1GB data daily, but for only 56 days, but at the same price.
The Rs309 and Rs509 plans for Jio prepaid remain, but the validity period has been changed to 56 days. While the former plan has a cap of 1GB 4G data per day, by buying the second plan users can use 2GB 4G data per day, for 56 days.
The new Rs399 plan has the same data benefits as the Rs309 plan, but the validity of the former is 84 days, instead of 56 days.
Reliance Jio has also introduced Every Day More Value (EDMV) plans, with the aim of providing ''20 per cent more value than competitors' best plans''.
The new Rs349 plan (under EDVM) will provide users with 20GB of 4G data, with no cap on per day consumption. After the whole data is used up, the speed will reduce to 128kbps.
Besides, there are plans of Rs999, Rs1,999, Rs4999 and Rs9999 also, with internet data offers of 90GB, 155GB, 380GB and 780GB, respectively. The validity periods are 90 days, 120 days, 210 days and 390 days, respectively. The data usage per day is unlimited, but after the data is exhausted, the speeds will drop to 128kbps in all these plans.
For Reliance postpaid users, there are two plans - Rs349 and Rs399, with two and three months of validity respectively. Under Rs349 plan, users will be given 20GB data with no cap, but speed reduction to 128kbps after data gets over.
Under the Rs399 plan, users will get unlimited 4G data, but with 1GB per day cap, as well as unlimited voice and SMS benefits.
For prepaid users, the plans begin with as low as Rs19 (valid for 1 day) and all voice calls are free in these plans. For prepaid, tariffs are inclusive of all taxes, but for postpaid, taxes are excluded in the cost. But, for these, users have to subscribe to Jio Prime membership, which has a one-time fee of Rs99 per user.
