Reliance Jio Postpaid and Prepaid Tariff Plans Revealed: But There Is a Catch

Reliance Jio has revealed all the postpaid and prepaid tariff plans and subscribers will finally have to pay for the services from 1st April 2017. However, the plans are still some of the most economical ones when compared to Jio’s competitors and Prime Members, for which the subscription starts today, will benefit the most out of this.

The subscription for Reliance Jio’s Prime membership can be availed at a nominal fee of Rs 99 and you can then enjoy the same offers as the ‘Happy New Year Plan’ till 31st March, 2018 by paying Rs 303 every month.
Reliance Jio recently achieved the feat of 100 million subscribers within just 170 days and until now, the company has been providing free data and calling services with a daily cap of 1GB on internet data and a free subscription to Jio Apps, which is still applicable till 31st March,2017.

The Catch

However, free calling is not actually free. Yes, you got it right!! Reliance Jio will offer only 1000 minutes /month without any cost even after subscribing to any of the above mentioned Prepaid Plans, after which calls within Jio’s server will be free.

To make calls on other networks, you will need to top-up your balance and the top-ups till Rs 50 comes with regular talk time and above Rs 50 to the upper-limit of Rs 5000, you will get full talk time.
