Alongside revising the long-term prepaid plans for prepaid users, Reliance Jio also launched two 'Shorter Validity' plans of Rs 49 and Rs 69 for JioPhone users. The two plans come bundled with off-net minutes, basic data benefit and 14 days validity. The Mukesh Ambani-led telco continues to offer other JioPhone plans like Rs 75, Rs 99, Rs 153 and long-term recharges like Rs 297 and Rs 594. The monthly base JioPhone plan is still the Rs 75 one as the newly launched shorter validity plans come with just 14 days of validity. The two new plans are already available for recharge to JioPhone users.
