Reliance Jio trumps Airtel with 3GB daily data plan
13 June 2018
Reliance Jio has taken up Bharti Airtel’s challenge with 3GB of 3G/4G data daily offer on all its plans offering 1.5 GB of data, stretching the price war a bit too further.
Jio’s move comes a day after Bharti Airtel, the country’s largest mobile network came out with an offer of 2GB of daily data on a prepaid plan of Rs149 - twice the amount it offered earlier, to boost its subscriber base.
Reliance Jio recently announced `Jio Double Dhamaka’ offer where users will be getting 1.5GB additional data on all plans that offer 1.5GB data or more. Jio is also offering Rs100 discount on plans above Rs300, where Rs50 is given up front when you use MyJio app, and the remaining Rs50 is given as cash back when you use PhonePe to make payment.
Reliance Jio Double Dhamaka offers 3GB data to prepaid customers everyday
The Rs149, Rs349, Rs399 and Rs449 plans offer 1.5GB data, and with the additional 1.5GB data, users will get 3GB data in total. The Rs149 plan comes with 28 days validity and offers 3GB daily data, making it a total of 42GB through the validity period. The Rs349 plan gets upfront Rs50 discount, and you only pay Rs299, where you get 70 days validity, and 3GB daily data.
The Rs399 plan also gets Rs50 discount, and you pay Rs349 where you get 84 days validity and 126GB data in total, with daily limit of 3GB. The Rs449 plan also gets Rs50 upfront discount, and it has a validity of 91 days, with total data of 136GB for the period.
Other plans with daily limit of 2GB, 3GB, 4GB and more also get additional 1.5GB a day, giving a really tough competition to incumbent telcos.

The most affordable plan is priced at Rs349, which offers unlimited local and STD calls, 100 daily SMS, free access to Live TV and more, and the plan comes with a validity of 28 days.
