Kicking in the new year in the manner it’s famous for, Reliance Jio has announced two new offers for its prepaid users. In the Happy New Year 2018 plans, Reliance Jio has introduced two plans at Rs 199 and Rs 299, which as Jio believes will deliver “higher data benefits” to its subscribers.

Available starting tonight, that is December 23 at 12:00AM, the two Jio plans have 28-day validity. The Rs 199 plan offers free voice and unlimited data with a cap of 1.2GB 4G data per day and unlimited SMS, along with subscription to premium Jio Apps for all Jio Prime Members.

The Rs 299 plan offers free voice, and 2GB 4G data per day, unlimited SMS and access to premium Jio Apps for all Jio Prime Members. In contrast, the earlier Rs 149 plan is worth noting because it offers 4GB of 4G data instead. Also Read - Reliance Jio vs Vi vs Airtel: Best 4GB daily data prepaid plans under Rs 600
However, the difference here is in the Happy New Year 2018 plans, the data offered is per day. Effectively, in the Rs 199 plan, you get about 33GB of data through the validity of the plan. Similarly, in Rs 299 plan, you get 56GB of data in the span of 28 days.
With these new plans, Jio has just raised the bar for incumbent operators. We’d expect the other telecom operators to also get more aggressive in the coming year with their tariff plans.
