Reliance Jio created quite a wave when it commercially launched its services in September last year. In just seven months, the company has garnered 100 million subscribers, thanks to freebies such as unlimited calls, high-speed internet access, bundled content services and more. But Reliance Jio has finally withdrawn the freebies and will start charging for services. Starting April 1 2017, Reliance Jio customers will have to pay between Rs 19 with one-day validity, Rs 149 with 28 days validity and go up to Rs 9,999 with a validity of 360 days.

Irrespective of the plan you choose, you get benefits such as free unlimited local and national outgoing call, unlimited SMS, free roaming and access to Jio bouquet of apps. Jio Prime membership, on the other hand, offers some interesting data benefits and to avail those, customers have to pay a one-time subscription fee of Rs 99 which will be valid for 12 months. The enrolment period is between March 1 and March 31, and users subscribe using My Jio app, visit jio.com website or simply walk into a Jio store to avail the plan.

But it doesn t end here — you ll have to recharge every month to continue getting benefits that the Happy New Year plan offers. Let s take a quick look at the plans that you may be interested in. All plans offer unlimited voice calls and SMS, only thing that changes include bundled data and validity.

Reliance Jio Rs 19 pack

The basic pack comes with one-day validity and bundled data of 100MB. This is for those who don t subscribe for Jio Prime membership by paying Rs 99 per year. Prime members, on the other hand, get 200MB data with same one-day validity.

Reliance Jio Rs 49 pack

The pack offers validity of three days and data benefit of 300MB. For Prime members, Jio has bundled 600MB of data, which is double to that of the usual pack. ALSO READ: 5 Reliance Jio milestones Mukesh Ambani revealed at his 100 million subscribers announcement

Reliance Jio Rs 96 pack

The pack comes with validity of seven days and data benefits of 600MB. For Prime members, Jio has bundled 7GB of data with daily Fair Usage Policy (FUP) limit of 1GB per day. After exhausting data, the speed will cut down to 128Kbps and will refresh every night at 12AM.

Reliance Jio Rs 149 pack

With this pack, users get a validity of 28 days with data benefits of 1GB and 100 free SMS. For Prime members, Jio has bundled 2GB of data and 100 free SMS for 28 days.

Reliance Jio Rs 303 pack

The Rs 303 pack is the one that was highlighted by Reliance Chairman Mukesh Ambani during his recent address. The usual pack offers validity of 28 days and data benefits of 2.5GB. Prime members, on the other hand, also get 28 days validity, unlimited internet access with a daily FUP limit of 1GB, after which speed will cut down to 128Kbps and will refresh every midnight.

Reliance Jio Rs 499 pack

Under this pack, non-Prime members get validity of 28 days, and 5GB of data, with daily FUP limit of 2GB. Prime members also get 28 days validity and unlimited high-speed internet access, with daily FUP limit of 2GB. ALSO READ: JioCinema now lets you download movies, shows; here s how it works

Reliance Jio Rs 999 pack

The plan is ideal for those who don t want any restrictions with daily FUP limit. The basic plan offers 28 days validity and data benefits of 12.5GB without any restrictions. And if you are a Prime member, you get 60 days validity and 60GB of high-speed 4G data, which is more than four times more than the usual pack. As there is no FUP limit, you get to use the data the way you want, and when you want.

Reliance Jio Rs 1,999 plan

The plan comes with 28 days validity and data benefits of 30GB, and there is no FUP limit either. And for Prime members, the validity is 90 days, but data benefits are unlimited. However, there is a small catch here. Even though you get unlimited data, the high-speed 4G speeds are only up to 125GB, post which speed will cut down to 128Kbps. Also, unlike other plans, speeds won t restore after midnight — once 125GB data ends, you ll have to refill again to restore the speeds.

Reliance Jio Rs 4,999 plan

With the Rs 4,999 plan, you get validity of 28 days and data benefits of 100GB. And for Prime members, the validity is 180 days and data benefits are unlimited, with 4G speeds up to 350GB. After 350GB data is downloaded, the speed will then drop to 128Kbps.

Reliance Jio Rs 9,999 plan

This is the last plan with a validity of 28 days and data benefits of 200GB. In case of Prime members, validity is 360 days and data benefits are unlimited with high-speed 4G data up to 750GB after which speeds will cut down to 128Kbps.

These are for prepaid users and for postpaid subscribers there are three plans Rs 303, Rs 499 and Rs 999, with the same data benefits as prepaid users. No doubt, for Prime members, plans priced between Rs 19 and Rs 499 offer good data benefits, but the FUP limit may be a downer for most. If you are one of those who want to download without any restrictions, plans between Rs 999 and Rs 9,999 could be apt.

That said, the plans for Prime members look interesting, but it remains to be seen if people could be willing to continue using the Jio connection by paying monthly fee. The high-speed 4G data speeds were good before but as more subscribers got added, the speeds came down drastically. Over the past few weeks, I did notice improvements in speed, but it is still not consistent. Moreover, the call failure issues due to lack of points of interconnect remain, and will be interesting to see how Jio tackles them.
