Jio will raise the prices of its Rs. 399 Dhan Dhana Dhan plan to Rs. 459 as part of the tariff revision the company had promised last week while announcing its Diwali cashback offer. The new Jio 459 plan will provide users with 1GB of data per day for 84 days, along with free calls and bundled SMS, and access to the company’s apps. Under the tariff revision, the Rs. 399 recharge pack will now provide customers with 1GB data per day and other freebies, but with validity of 70 days, instead of 84 days as was the case earlier. These Jio plans will be effective from October 19 and will apply to both new and existing users.
Validity of the Jio 509 plan will also reduced from 56 days to 49 days for prepaid users. It is not yet clear whether the validity of the postpaid plan at the same price will be impact as well. The plan still provides 2GB of data per day, as well as the standard benefits the company offers in the Rs. 399 and Rs. 459 plans.
Not all plans have become more expensive. The exceptions are the lower-priced plans, particularly the Rs 149 plan that now offers consumers double the data from 2GB to 4GB at the same price.
Weekly Packs: Under these plans, a user can get free voice, SMS, unlimited data (0.15 GB daily) for Rs 52 for a week (7 days) or Rs 98 for 2 weeks (14 days).
*Unlimited data signifies Daily Limit at High Speed, followed by unlimited at 64 Kbps.
