Daily data prepaid plans have taken the Indian telecom industry by storm ever since Reliance Jio introduced them in 2017. In the past, we have seen telcos like Jio, Airtel and Vodafone Idea offering up to 5GB of data per day with their prepaid plans. As the going got tough in the industry, telcos started to reduce the data benefit. After the last tariff hike that happened in December 2019, telcos are offering a maximum of 3GB data per day with their prepaid plans. The top three telecom operators in India right now have a couple of 3GB data per day prepaid plans on offer priced over Rs 300. Jio currently has the cheapest 3GB daily data plan priced at Rs 349, whereas Airtel and Vi are offering them at a starting price of Rs 398 with a validity of 28 days.
