Reliance Jio has quietly discontinued its cheapest Rs 98 prepaid plan in India. From now on, the most affordable Jio plan will cost you Rs 129 per month. This plan gets you 2GB data, 1000 minutes of free voice calls to non-Jio network for 28 days. The new plan revisions fall in line with Jio’s attempt to increase its monthly revenue from users. We’ve already seen the telecom operator increase tariff for many of its plans. They have also reduced validity period of some plans, in order to push the user to go for the higher plan.
