Reliance Jio Introduces A Year-long Prepaid Plan At ₹4,999 With 350 GB 4G Data


Reliance Jio has come up with a new yearly prepaid plan priced at ₹4,999, offering 350 GB 4G data for 360 days. Read on for complete details about the new plan.

Reliance Jio had suddenly discontinued its ₹4,999 long-term recharge plan in December 2019 post the prepaid tariff revision. And now, the company has brought back the plan as part of its long-term prepaid options. The plan comes with a validity of 360 days and offers a total of 350 GB data at 4G speeds. A benefit about this new pack is that there will not be a daily limit for the 350 GB data offered; however, once exhausted, users will see a tremendous decline in speed as it will be capped at just 64 Kbps.

Reliance Jio ₹4,999 prepaid plan: Other benefits

The latest ₹4,999 prepaid plan offers users unlimited Jio to Jio calls, although it comes with a FUP limit on non-Jio voice calls. This may seem underwhelming, as competitors like Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea offer unlimited voice calling benefit without any FUP limit. Reliance Jio offers only 12,000 minutes of calling to other networks, meaning that users will be charged once the free 12,000 free minutes are over.

However, Jio had also stated earlier that it would continue charging six paise per minute for off-net calls as Interconnect Usage Charges until TRAI implements the zero-interconnect usage charges (IUC) regime on January 1, 2021. The ₹4,999 plan also offers 100 SMSes per day through its entire validity period.
