  • Reliance Jio Happy New Year 2018 offer Reliance Jio recharge Reliance Jio Rs 149 Jio Rs 149 plan Reliance Jio Airtel Rs 199 recharge Vodafone Rs 198 recharge Jio vs Vodafone vs Airtel best 1GB daily data offer

Reliance Jio, on Monday, announced its new recharge plans for its users as a part of the Happy New Year 2018 offer, wherein it will give 1.5 GB data per day in four of its packs. Well now, the telco has made some revisions to both these plans to offer more benefits to its customers.

The new 1.5GB data per day plans the operator is bringing in are priced at Rs. 198, Rs. 398, Rs. 448, and Rs. 498. Airtel has increased its validity from 84 days to 91 days. The validity of this plan will be 28 days.

Airtel has given changes to two of their existing prepaid plans, adding extra validity in order to go in a tight competition with Jio, increasing the validity of its Rs 448 and Rs 509 prepaid plans. The validity of this pack, too, remains the same, 91 days.

Airtel's revised plans come just days after it launched the Rs 799 plan to offer 3.5GB 4G data every day for a period of 28 days. Apart from the change in validity, all other plans remain the same. Prepaid users must recharge with a minimum Jio Rs 399 plan to be eligible for this Surprise Cashback offer.

The CBI special judge had on December 23 acquitted former Bihar chief minister Jagannath Mishra and five others in the case. The presiding judge said, "An open jail is best for these people (convicts), as they also have experience of cow farming'".

As for Airtel's Rs 509 plan, users earlier got 84 days of validity with 1GB data per day, which would put the total data available to users at 84GB.

All these data packs come with their similar offer of unlimited calls, SMS bundle, and access to Jio's bundle of applications. Users looking to opt for that offer should ideally hold back till 9th Jan to get the best of both worlds.

Airtel offers unlimited calling, but there are terms and conditions, the voice calls are limited to 300 minutes per day and 1200 minutes per week. It comes bundled with 100 local, national SMS per day. The plan also offers unlimited local and STD calls with unlimited SMS. Vodafone has put a limit of up to 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week limit on the unlimited calling, whichever is crossed first.
