The way this works is pretty simple. Say your Reliance Jio prepaid plan validity expires on December 25, and you recharge today (December 5). When you check the plan validity, it will show the expiry date, along with the date when the new plan will be activated. You can check this MyJio app. Ideally, making a recharge that offers daily data along with 84 days (or 365 days) validity would be a good choice to retain the current benefits for a long time.
