Reliance Jio has finally put an end to its free services. Much to the relief of its competition, and apparently, the sector regulator too. The last date to subscribe for Jio Prime membership was 15th April after which users who haven’t subscribed are now getting a notification of discontinuation, as per some reports. The discontinuation has been run down in phases and if not today, your non-prime Reliance Jio number will soon bid adieu to free services which the telecom operator has been granting since September 2016. But, what if you subscribed to Jio Prime membership by paying Rs 99 fee and didn’t opt for Summer Surprise or Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan offer? For you, Reliance Jio is now paid and we have listed down on the tariffs, as stated on the company’s website, down below. Do not that unlike the other operators in the market, in Jio’s case , what you see is indeed what you get, and calling up to get a better plan will not work, at least right now.
Reliance Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan offer is still valid for Jio Prime members
Yes, if you have subscribed for Jio Prime membership before 15th April, you can still opt for Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan offer by paying for any one of the two plans available on both the company website and MyJio app. Under the new offer, Jio users who have already subscribed to Jio Prime membership can now get 1GB 4G data per day for 84 days (28 days x 3) by just paying Rs 309. Further, one can pay Rs 509 and get 2GB 4G data per day with a validity of 84 days. Apart from this, you still get unlimited free voice calls and SMS and free access to Jio Apps. However, post the 84 days period, the validity of both the above-mentioned offer will be downgraded to 28 days.
Rs 149 Plan
Apart from the Dhan Dhana Dhan offer, Reliance Jio is also offering 2GB 4G data along with 300 SMS, Free Unlimited Local + STD calls for Rs 149.
If you have exhausted the services of any of the above plans, you can add up some more 4G data by opting for Boosters. For Rs 11, you can get 100MB of 4G data, For Rs 51 you get 1GB and going all the way up to Rs 301, you get 10GB of 4G data. The validity of these booster packs will coincide with the validity of your activated plans.
If you are not comfortable paying Rs 309 more for the Dhan Dhana Dhan offer or you first want to test out the services, Reliance Jio has given Sachet Packs which start at as low as Rs 19 in which Jio Prime members can avail 200MB of 4G data, 100 SMS and complimentary subscription to Jio Apps with a validity of 1 day. Similarly, for Rs 49 you get 600MB of 4G data and Free voice calls with a validity of 3 days, for Rs 96 you get 1GB of 4G data, Free Voice calls and other services for 7 days.
Interestingly, Reliance Jio has also listed some top up plans. These top-ups provide monetary value in your core account that can be used to make international calls and SMS, international roaming calls, SMS and Data, Data overage, SMS beyond 100 per day, Premium shortcodes and calls, recharging your Hero pack from your core account.
Top-up plans starts from Rs 10 which offers Rs 7.7 of talk time, Rs 20 gives you 15.39 of talk time, Rs 100 gives you Rs 100 full talk time and so on. You can recharge up to Rs 5000 for Rs 5000 full talk time.
ISD Packs (International Subscriber Dialing) and SMS Packs
If you want to make calls outside India, Jio has a Rs 501 ISD pack which gives you an ISD talk time of Rs 435.65 with a validity of 28 days.
If you are too much into SMS, Jio has a Rs 201 SMS pack for you which gives you a balance of Rs 175.1 (validity – 28 days) and SMS charges are reduced to 85 paise for Local+National SMS while ISD SMS will cost your Rs5 per SMS.
Nothing for Postpaid users
Reliance Jio’s official website, unfortunately, doesn’t list any plans or benefits for postpaid users. There is a possibility that the company might be uploading the plans soon so stay Tuned.
