Reliance Jio just announced an increase for its prepaid recharge plans, which will come in effect starting December 1. With this increase in prepaid tariff rates, Jio prepaid recharge plans will be hiked by as much as 20 percent. This decision to increase the tariff rates has been implemented after both Airtel and Vi (Vodafone Idea) have announced an increase in their prepaid tariff rates.
According to a press release by the company, the tariff rates have been increased due to its "commitment to further strengthen a sustainable telecom industry." "These plans will provide the best value in the industry. Upholding the Jio promise of providing the best-quality service at the lowest price globally, Jio customers will continue to be the biggest beneficiaries," it added.
