Reliance Jio’s ₹4,999 plan offers less data but sets no daily limits

  • Reliance Jio has announced a new ₹4,999 long-term plan with 360 days validity.
  • The plan offers 350GB data, unlimited Jio to Jio calls and 12,000 non-Jio minutes.
Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance has announced a new annual plan for its users. Its new ₹4,999 plan replaces a similar long-term plan that the company had discontinued in December after it revised the tariffs.

With this, the company now has three long-term plans - ₹1,299 plan with 336 days validity and 24GB of data; ₹2,121 plan with 336 days validity and 1.5GB data per day; and the new ₹4,999 plan with 360 days of validity and 350GB data.

While the plan may look good at first, it actually offers less than 1GB data per day. The company’s own ₹2,121 plan which offers 1.5GB data per day comes with significantly more data and is very affordable compared to the new long-term plan.

The main benefit that the ₹4,999 plan offers over the ₹2,121 plan is that there is no limit on the amount of data that can be used in a day. The ₹2,121 plan comes with a daily limit of 1.5GB data. Additionally, the ₹4,999 plan comes with 360 days of validity and the ₹2,121 plan offers 336 days of validity.

If we look at the total data offered by both the plans, the ₹4,999 plan offers 350GB data and the ₹2,121 offers 504GB data in total. The huge difference in the amount of data and the price makes the ₹2,121 plan a better option.

Apart from the data limits, the other benefits of both the plans are same. The plans offer unlimited Jio to Jio calls, 12,000 non-Jio minutes, 100 SMS per day and complimentary access to Jio apps.
