Affordable Long-Term Prepaid Plans Under Rs 1,000 For BSNL, Jio, Airtel and Vodafone Users

All the telcos ship long-term prepaid plans under Rs 1,000 which come with three months or more validity

  • Some plans come with data benefit for the entire validity period
  • There are also plans with daily data limits
  • BSNL is offering an STV in this price range for the subscribers

December is almost here, and with that, the telecom industry is drawing in closer and closer to the tariff hike which is supposedly only a few weeks away for Jio, Airtel and BSNL and only a day away for Vodafone Idea users. Now, the tariff hike is a long-awaited thing for the telecom operators which will help them in positively transforming their balance sheets. The tariff hike will also help them overcome some of the sudden dues which they might have encountered after the AGR decision on October 24. But, with all this being said, there is also the fact that the tariff hike is something that the consumers will be up against, but there would be little that they would be able to do about it. Also, since all the telecom operators are hiking the prices of their plans, shifting to another operator is also not an option. However, for a little defence for themselves from this tariff hike and to save themselves some money, the subscribers can surely opt for the long term prepaid plans before the tariff hike happens. Here are some of the long-term prepaid plans, the subscribers can choose from under the Rs 1,000 price tag.


Reliance Jio Rs 999 Prepaid Plan

When it comes to long-term prepaid plans, Reliance Jio has two choices for the customers. One in which it ships no daily data limit, and the other ones in which the data is available with a daily FUP limit. The Rs 999 prepaid plan by Reliance Jio belongs to the first category, and it comes with 60GB data for the validity period of 90 days. Along with this, the subscribers also get the benefit of 100 SMS per day. There is also the added benefit of subscription to Reliance Jio apps. Further, the subscribers will have to buy the additional IUC talk time vouchers to ensure that they can make calls to other networks.

Reliance Jio Rs 498 Prepaid Plan

Another option for the subscribers of Reliance Jio when it comes to long-term prepaid plans is the Rs 498 prepaid plan. Unlike the above-mentioned plan, this plan by Reliance Jio comes with a daily data limit. The validity of this plan is 91 days, and throughout the validity, the subscribers will enjoy 2GB data per day. Additional benefits in this plan include 100 SMS per day and subscription to Reliance Jio app. With this app too, the subscribers will have to get the additional IUC top-up vouchers.

Bharti Airtel Rs 998 Prepaid Plan

For Bharti Airtel subscribers, there is the option of Rs 998 prepaid plan which comes with 336 days validity, which is just a month short of a year-long validity. This plan offers 12GB data to the subscribers, and unlimited calling benefit Additional benefits in this plan include Rs 150 cashback on FASTag, a free 4-week course on Shaw academy, Airtel Xstream Premium app, and Wynk Music. The subscribers also get 300 SMS per 28 days in this plan.

Vodafone Rs 999 Prepaid Plan

The Vodafone subscribers have the option of opting for Rs 999 prepaid plan which comes with 365 days validity, meaning that a full year-worth of validity. This prepaid plan comes with 12GB data for the entire validity period, and it also offers unlimited calling benefit. The subscribers also get 3600 SMS for 365 days.

BSNL Rs 998 Prepaid STV

This prepaid STV from BSNL competes with the other plans listed here. The plan offers 2GB data to the BSNL customers, and it comes with 210 days validity. However, to the disappointment of the users, this plan does not come with any SMS or calling benefit.

This is my suggestion: At this moment don’t opt for any long term plans beyond 3 months because these can be cancelled midway by the operators due to the financial crunch. Be safe – try stunts with a 3 month UL Plan to minimise your risk.


Prices announced are too high. Those who have recharged saved a lot of money. Ofcourse we will have to wait till Airtel/Jio announce their plans.

Actually people should recharge for half a year atleast right away.


The tariff is going ro be increased by 30%. Greedy looters Avoid cartel MF are a curse on India and Indians.

Namazi thinks he is a dragon and a monk and feels like he has trademarked the fake name since China owns Pakistan now. Heights of stupidity.
