- Airtel and Vodafone offer similar plans priced at Rs 509
- Reliance Jio also offers Rs 498 and Rs 449 prepaid plans

However, even with some stabilisation in the tariffs and a little calm in the sector the prepaid plans of these telcos largely resemble each other leading to some confusion in the minds of the people which operator they should go for.
