Reliance Jio has announced new all-in-one (AIO) tariff plans and confirmed that the all new mobile tariff plans will be effective from December 6, with unlimited voice calls within the Jio network and bundled data. This announcement comes just days after the company had confirmed that they will be announcing new tariff plans for prepaid subscribers in India. The new AIO plans start at Rs 129 per month with multiple options available to users depending on what validity period or usage scenario they may be opting for.
“These plans will provide up to 300% more benefits to the Jio consumers, upholding the Jio promise of providing the best-quality service at the lowest price globally,” says Reliance Jio in a statement. These plans are priced significantly lower than the recently announced new recharge options by rivals Airtel and Vodafone Idea, with up to 25% savings for Jio customers in comparison.
Reliance Jio has the 1.5GB data per day AIO plans priced Rs 199 onwards. You can either opt for the Rs 199 pack with a validity of 28-days, or get the same benefits at Rs 399 for 56 days, at Rs 555 for 84 days and at Rs 2,199 for 365 days. These packs bundle 1.5GB data per day, as well as unlimited calls within the Reliance Jio network. The fair usage policy (FUP) for the calls to other mobile networks such as Airtel and Vodafone Idea is at 1000 minutes per month. This means the Rs 199 plan gets 1000 minutes of FUP, the Rs 399 plan gets 2000 minutes of FUP, the Rs 555 plan gets 3000 minutes of FUP calls to other networks while the Rs 2,199 plan bundles 12,000 minutes of FUP. Once this FUP is exhausted, these calls will be charged at Rs 0.06 per minute.
The comparable recharge options from Airtel and Vodafone Idea that offer 1.5GB data per day and offer 28-day validity are priced at Rs 248 and Rs 249 respectively.
There are other AIO plans as well.
The Rs 249 plan is valid for 28-days and offers 2GB data per day, unlimited calls within the Jio network and 1000 minutes of FUP for calls made to other mobile networks. Airtel and Vodafone Idea also have similar plans with 2GB data per day, but those are priced at Rs 298 and Rs 299 respectively. The Rs 349 plan has the same validity and benefits, except that it bundles 3GB data per day. Airtel and Vodafone Idea's recharge options are priced at Rs 398 and Rs 399 respectively.
There is the Rs 444 option as well, with a validity of 56 days and this bundles 2GB data per day and 2000 minutes of FUP for off-net calls.
If you want to opt for the 84-day validity options, then the Rs 599 plan is one that bundles 2GB data per day and 3000 minutes of FUP for calls made outside the Jio network. You will pay Rs 698 for a similar plan if you are an Airtel user and Rs 699 if you are a Vodafone Idea user.
There are some plans which Jio clubs together under the “Affordable Plans” bucket. These include the Rs 129 plan that has a validity of 28 days, and bundles 2GB data in total as well as 1000 minutes of FUP for calls made outside the Jio network. Calls within the Jio network remain free and unlimited as before. The Rs 329 plan has a validity of 84 days with 6GB data in total and 3000 minute FUP for non-Jio calls. You can also opt for the annual plan which is priced at Rs 1,299 and this offers 24GB data in total as well as 12000 minutes FUP for calls made to Airtel, Vodafone Idea and other networks.
