Reliance Jio recently announced the Jio Summer Surprise plan, which will extend the free 4G services for another three months. At the time of the announcement, Jio did not reveal the detailed tariff schemes. Instead, it said that the users who recharge with Rs. 303 plan or above will get additional three months of free 4G services.
Yesterday, Jio updated their website with the new Summer Surprise pack details giving us some insights about the same. And there’s a surprise here. As per the announcement, users will get only 1GB data per day under the new Summer offer. But that applies only to customers who recharge with the Rs. 303 plan. Jio, in its press statement, said that the summer plan would be applicable only with the recharges of above Rs. 303.
Users who recharge with the Rs. 499 plan will be rewarded with 2GB data per day, which is same as the previous plan. We have approached Jio customer care, and they have also confirmed the same. That said, users can get 2GB of 4G data daily for free for four months at just Rs. 598, which is way better than other telecom operators offers. The Summer plan will conclude on June 30 after which; the paid recharge plan will be applicable.
At the same time, there’s some confusion for users who have already recharged with the Rs. 149 plan. For those customers to enjoy the free benefits for another three months, they will have to either recharge with the Rs. 303 or Rs. 499 plan before April 15.
For instance, if a customer recharges with two tariff plans of Rs. 149 and Rs. 499 or Rs. 303 and Rs. 499, benefits of the highest plan would be applied for the first three months and post the free offer period, benefits of the first recharge pack will be applicable, i.e., from July 1 to July 28.
Do make a note that the summer offer plans will be effective from April 16 and till then; users can enjoy the same Jio Happy New Plan benefits of 1GB data per day and unlimited voice calls.
Jio also stated that the international roaming tariff plans would be rolled out on April 15. Another important point to be noted is that there won’t be any unlimited data offers during night hours, i.e., from 2 AM to 5 AM. And, the last date for unlimited night data will end on April 15.
Other data plans such as Rs. 51 and Rs. 301 will continue to offer the same benefits as earlier. Which plan will you enroll now? Let us know in the comments section below.
