Reliance Jio launches Happy New Year plans with daily data benefits

Reliance Jio

The new Jio 199 and Jio 299 plans - being dubbed Happy New Year 2018 plans by the telco - aim to offer daily data benefits to those with limited budgets. So, here are the details on the new data plans from Jio. Jio will launch the plan from today midnight. The Rs 199 tariff plan offers 1.2GB data per day for 28 days, along with unlimited voice calls including roaming calls. Those recharging with Rs 299 would be eligible for an even higher data cap of 2GB per day for a total of 28 days.

The Rs 458 plan has a validity of 70 days and offers 1 GB 4G data per day along with 100 SMS messages, free roaming calls, and free local and STD calls over all networks. The plan offers 60GB of high-speed 4G data and users can consume the whole data in one day or can use the data for 90 days.

The validity of this pack extends up to 49 days.

The next plan will cost you ₹299 and comes with double the data per day. The Rs. 149 plan with a validity period of 28 days gets you 4GB data in all, and is aimed at those with limited data needs.

Stormy Weekend Ahead: Snow Likely Christmas Day
Locally we will see a small shower chance, breezy conditions and highs in the lower 60s along with mostly cloudy skies. As of now, a light snow still looks possible, but the key word is light! Tuesday - Partly sunny, with a high near 16.

The Rs. 509 "Super Plan" pack has the same benefits but offers a validity of 84 days.

Let's not forget the third type of consumers, the data-heavy users whose requirements are more high-speed 4G data in excess of 1GB per day without a drop in internet speed.

Note: All the plans mentioned in this article offer unlimited local, STD and incoming roaming calls. Also, users are not allowed to call more than 100 unique numbers in a week; in this case, the calls will be charged at 1 paisa per second. We'd expect the other telecom operators to also get more aggressive in the coming year with their tariff plans. All calls are free in this plan. The new tariff plans are here to compete with tariff plans from Airtel, Idea Cellular, and Vodafone India. And it will be interesting to see how Airtel, Idea Cellular, and Vodafone India reacts to these two plans from Jio. It will provide the benefits like unlimited STD and local calls, roaming calls, free 100 SMS for a day. The price and benefits war isn't just restricted to tariff plans and has moved on to smartphones.
