Telecom company Reliance Jio has brought down the prices of its data plans again in India. After the recent tariff hike Reliance Jio had to increase the tariffs like the other telecom companies. And yet Reliance Jio was providing 1.5GB daily data for Rs 199 while competitors like Airtel and Vodafone are still offering the same at Rs 249. And now Reliance Jio has introduced a Rs 251 plan that is valid for 51 days and offers 2GB data everyday. For users that solely need data, this is an excellent plan to use.

This plan which is also called the ‘Jio Cricket’ pack is a data only prepaid pack. Which means that it does not offer any calling or SMS benefits and only offers data. This recharge is a pure data benefit that works over the existing plan on a particular number. If we were to count down the numbers the Rs 251 plan offers 1GB of data at just Rs 2.46. This plan is aimed at users that consume a lot of data and comes with a long validity of 51 days.

Besides this recent reports claim that Reliance Jio has once again strengthened its user base and is continuing with the aggressive subscriber addition this year despite tariff revision, as per TRAI.
