Reliance Jio, a couple of days ago, rolled out a new offer to keep the consumers as well as the other incumbent telcos like Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India and Idea Cellular at the edge of their seats. The telco rolled out a new Double Dhamaka offer which would offer additional data to the customers along with up to Rs 100 discount on every prepaid pack. The telco did not stop at just the launch of this new offer but instead went on to explicitly compare the offer with what Airtel was providing at the same price point. While Reliance Jio and the largest telco of the country, Bharti Airtel stay in a very stiff competition with each other. Other telcos like BSNL, Idea and Vodafone are trying their level best to improve their game in the telecom industry.
Not only this, the telcos have rolled out new prepaid and postpaid plans every other day for quite some time now to match the stringent competition which is going on in the telecom industry. The telcos not only release new packs, but they also tweak the previous plans to offer a lot more than the competition so that they are able to attract the customers. Below we have highlighted plans from Reliance Jio, Vodafone India, Idea Cellular and Bharti Airtel which offer 3GB daily data along with free calling and different add-ons.
Jio Plans Offering 3GB Daily Data
The Jio Double Dhamaka offer is providing additional data over the existing plans which Jio is offering. Jio bundles 2GB daily data in the Rs 299 prepaid recharge plan that comes with 28 days validity. The plan also bundles calls and 100 SMSes per day along with a free subscription to Jio apps.
Under the new offer, consumers making a new recharge between June 12 and June 30 will be eligible for 1.5GB extra data above the limit of what the plan ships normally. For instance, if the customer purchases the Rs 299 pack along with this offer, they will get 4.5GB per day, instead of 2GB. Not only this, but the customers will also win a discount of 20% which will bring down the final cost of the plan to Rs 239.
An alternative option to avail 3GB data per day can be done by subscribing to the Rs 149, Rs 349, Rs 399, and Rs 449 recharge packs. When users buy the Rs 149 pack they would get 1.5GB daily data, however, because of the new offer the daily data limit would be further increased to 3GB, combine this with the 20% discount, the cost of this pack will come down to Rs 120. So, the customers will enjoy benefits of 3GB data per day, unlimited calls, and 100 SMSes per day at Rs 120 for 28 days of validity.
As per the rules of Jio Double Dhamaka offer, users will be eligible for a discount of Rs 100 on every recharge above the cost of Rs 300. While a discount of Rs 50 will be given to them when they recharge using MyJio app. This discounted money will be added to the customer’s PhonePe account. This will further bring down the cost of the Rs 299 pack to Rs 249.
The Rs 399 prepaid recharge pack by Jio bundles 1.5GB per day for a validity of 84 days. Under the new offer, users will only be paying Rs 299 for 3GB data per day for the entire validity period. The Rs 499 prepaid recharge plan by Jio will also be available for Rs 349 under the offer while combining the usual unlimited calling and messaging benefits.
Airtel Tariff Plans Offering 3GB Data Per Day
Seeing the increasing competition in the market, Airtel has also made many revisions to its plans. Much before, the Rs 349 prepaid pack which used to bundle less data is now providing 3GB data to the customers. Along with the data, users also get the benefits of unlimited calling and 100 SMS per day for the validity of 28 days at Rs 349.
Going above this price point, customers can also opt for the Rs 558 prepaid recharge pack which offers 3GB data per day but does so for a total validity of 82 days. This plan also comes with usual calling and SMS benefits. Similar to Jio, all the Airtel plans come with a subscription to Airtel’s portfolio of apps like Wynk music.
Idea Prepaid Packs Offering 3GB Daily Data
Lastly, the Aditya Birla owned telco is also not far behind when it comes to releasing new and attractive offers. Like the other telcos at the competition, Idea is giving them a tough fight by shipping 3GB data per day at Rs 349. The validity of this plan is 28 days, and this one also accompanies other benefits like unlimited calling and free SMS.
Vodafone Prepaid Packs Offering 3GB Daily Data
Despite the impending merger with Idea Cellular, Vodafone India is eyeing its customers for retention and attempting to increase its subscriber base. The company is also not far behind when it’s about rolling out new plans. The Rs 349 prepaid recharge pack by Vodafone offers 3GB data per day for a total validity of 28 days. Users of this plan also get 100 SMSes per day. Also, there is a pricier pack of Rs 569 that bundles 3GB data per day for a validity of 84 days. The benefits of unlimited calling and SMS remain the same. Like, other telcos Vodafone also gives free access to live TV on Vodafone Play app.
