Reliance Jio today announced its Double Dhamaka offer, where the company will be offering data benefits of 1.5GB on almost all its prepaid plans, till the end of the month. The company is doing this to better compete with Airtel, which recently revised its Rs 149 plan to offer 2GB of data per day, instead of 1GB. However, the revised plan is only available for limited subscribers at the moment, while Jio’s new data benefit will be available from June 12 to June 30 to all subscribers, across the country.
According to the new offer, all four of Jio’s prepaid plans that come with 1.5GB FUP will be doubling their data amount to 3GB per day. The plans are priced at Rs 149, Rs 349, Rs 399 and Rs 449. The Rs 149 comes with a validity of 28 days, while the Rs 349 and Rs 399 are valid for 70 and 84 days, respectively. The Rs 449 plan, on the other hand, offers 91 days validity. If you have to consider the Rs 149 plan, it offers a per GB cost of Rs 1.7. which at the moment no other service provider offers. To give you a perspective, the Rs 149 plan from Airtel has a per GB cost of Rs. 2.66.
Not just that, Jio is also offering an additional cashback of 20 percent on select plans when recharged through MyJio app. This means that the Rs 149 plan will now be available for Rs 120, while the Rs 399 plan will cost Rs 299 when using the MyJio app, further dipping the per GB cost on these plans.
