Let’s compare all of them and see which one is better.

There is 100 SMS/day included in the plan along with a complimentary subscription to all the Jio apps.
But this is not the only OTT benefit that you will receive with this plan. You will also get a free 1-year subscription of Disney+ Hotstar VIP which costs Rs 399 per month.
