Jio 3G Mobile Recharge Plans in India
What Jio 49 recharge?
In a big shock for millions of Jio users, and especially JioPhone users, Rs 49 recharge pack has been removed by Jio.
Hence, in order to use Jio services, Rs 75 is the minimum pack which a user must opt for.
The Rs 49 recharge pack used to offer 28 days validity, and unlimited calling to any number, and 1GB data for 28 days. There was no IUC limit (calls to other networks) as well.
For millions of JioPhone users, this was the most popular pack, and the cheapest one too, compared to other telecom operators.
But now, this plan has been removed.
After this removal, Rs 75 has become the base recharge for any JioPhone or non-JioPhone user.
Rs 75 pack comes under All-In-One pack provides 500MB of data per day for 28 days, and offers 500 off-network calls (outside Jio network), and unlimited Jio to Jio calls, along with 50 SMSes.
For additional off-network calls, JioPhone user will need to opt for an IUC pack or pay 6paisa per minute.
Other All-In-One packs for JioPhone users are: Rs 75, Rs 125, Rs 155 and Rs 185 plans.
Note here, that earlier JioPhone specific plans such as Rs 99, Rs 153, Rs 297 and Rs 594 are still available, and has limited off-network calls, along with limited data.
Rs 99 plan, for instance, offers 500MB data for 28 days, but no off-network calls.
What is the 399 plan of Jio?
Those using the Rs 399 plan will have to recharge for Rs 555, a 39% jump, to get the same amount of data for 84 days. Analysts have welcomed the price hikes in the industry, which should help the sector reeling under debt of Rs 7 lakh crore.
Is Jio 49 plan for all?
Reliance Jio has made changes to the tariff plans on December 6, but thankfully, the company did not increase the prices of JioPhone plans. Instead of hiking the plan prices, Jio has removed the most affordable Rs 49 JioPhone recharge plan and the new recharges now start at Rs 75. A few weeks ago, Jio introduced All-in-One plans for JioPhone users and the Rs 75 plan is part of the same. Other plans such as Rs 99, Rs 153, Rs 297 and Rs 594 are also available for recharge, but JioPhone users will have to shell out additional IUC Top-Up charges to get non-Jio minutes. We have approached Reliance Jio for an update regarding the removal of JioPhone Rs 49 plan and will update this post once we get any revert from the company.
What is the plan of Jio 98?
The Jio Rs 98 plan offers 2GB data, 300 SMS with 28 days validity. Notably, the 2Gb data is for the whole validity of 28 days. It offers free Jio-to-Jio calls but for making a call to other operators, customers have to buy the IUC talk time plans.
Best mobile operators in India are: Airtel, BSNL, Jio Reliance, Vodafone, Idea.
