Telecom operator Reliance Jio has revised its Rs 149 prepaid plan that now comes with 300 non-Jio calling minutes. The validity of the Rs 149 prepaid plan has been reduced to 24 days against the previous 28 days. The plan however, continues to provide unlimited calls on Jio to Jio numbers. It also offers customers 1.5GB of daily 4G data and 100 SMS daily along with a complimentary subscription to Jio's premium app. The announcement of Rs 149 prepaid plan comes within days after Reliance Jio introduced a charge of 6 paise per minute to users for making calls on non-Jio numbers.
