- Jio plans with 1GB data per day will give 1.5GB per day from January 26
- Similarly, 1.5GB per day plans will provide 2GB per day under the offer
- The Rs. 98 plan will come with 28-day validity, up from 14 days
Once again Jio revised its plans for this Republic Day to give more data to users for a lesser price. Earlier this month, Jio revised it’s few plans and added multiple new plans as a part of Jio Happy New Year 2018 offer. In Happy New Year Offer, the telecom company offered its 1GB data per day plan for a lesser price and launched several new 1.5GB data per day plans. However, those plans under new year offer will now be changed this Republic Day as Jio will launch its Republic Day offer in the next few days. Under the new offer, Jio users will get up to 50 percent more data on plans priced Rs. 149 or above. The changes will come into effect at 12 am on January 26, 2018.
The company’s 1GB data per day plans are priced at Rs. 149, Rs. 349, Rs. 399 and Rs. 449, with validities of 28 days, 70 days, 84 days and 91 days, respectively. However, with the Jio Republic Day Offer 2018, customers will get 50 percent more data as the daily high-speed data cap will be raised to 1.5GB per day. This means the 1GB data per day plans are effectively phased out, at least till the Republic Day offer continues.
Similarly, the 1.5GB data per day plans will now offer 2GB of high-speed data a day. So customers will now get more data with the Rs. 198, Rs. 398, Rs. 448 and Rs. 498 plans. This pretty much leaves the Rs. 299 plan redundant as subscribers will be able to get the same benefits (2GB per day for 28 days) at Rs. 198.
|Price||Current data allowance||Data allowance from February 26||Validity||Total data from January 26|
|Rs. 149||1GB per day||1.5GB per day||28 days||42GB|
|Rs. 198||1.5GB per day||2GB per day||28 days||56GB|
|Rs. 349||1GB per day||1.5GB per day||70 days||105GB|
|Rs. 398||1.5GB per day||2GB per day||70 days||140GB|
|Rs. 399||1GB per day||1.5GB per day||84 days||126GB|
|Rs. 448||1.5GB per day||2GB per day||84 days||168GB|
|Rs. 449||1GB per day||1.5GB per day||91 days||136GB|
|Rs. 498||1.5GB per day||2GB per day||91 days||182GB|
The Rs. 98 Jio plan is also being revised to offer twice the current validity as part of the Republic Day offer. Users will get validity of 28 days at Rs. 98, up from 14 days. However, the 4G data allocation with the plan is 2GB for the entire 28-day period; customers presently get 150MB of 4G data per day data with the pack.
Customers will have to buy a new recharge pack on or after January 26, 2018 to avail the data benefits under the Jio Republic Day Offer. The new recharge pack will be queued and will come into effect once the current plan’s validity runs out. For example, if a subscriber has the Rs. 349 plan with 70-day validity that ends on February 28 and then buys the Rs. 349 recharge after January 26, they will get 1GB data per day in February, and then 1.5GB per day for 70 days from March 1. Alternatively, they can cancel the active plan in the MyJio app and activate the 1.5GB data plan as soon as they buy it.
