Jio rolls out new 4G tariff plans: Here's everything that has changed

Reliance Jio revamps its tariff plans ahead of Diwali. The telecom operator announces new tariff plans under its incumbent Dhan Dhana Dhan offer on Wednesday. The new tariff plans are already available starting yesterday - October 19 for both new and existing users. Interestingly with the new tariffs, Jio has either increased the prices of the plans, or cut down the validity duration, or in some case decreased the daily FUP limit. But then, there are some plans like Rs 149 under which the company is now offering better services.

Under the company's Rs 399 plan Jio is now offering 70 GB of 4G data for 70 days. This plan, like before is also offering unlimited STD and local voice calling facility along with 1GB of FUP limit. The Rs 399 earlier offered 84GB of 4G data for 84 days.

Let's take a detailed look at all the tariff plans and what has changed for Jio users. Let's talk about the changed plans for prepaid users.

Rs 52 plan: Under this plan, all Jio prepaid users will get 1.05GB of 4G data with a daily limit of 0.15GB. This plan will also offer unlimited local, STD to all operators along with 70 SMSes both local and STD. Rs 52 plan comes with a validity of 7 days.
