Reliance Jio Subscribers Will Have to Choose Between All in One Recharges and Standard Ones, Here is Some Help

Reliance Jio has introduced all-in-one prepaid plans starting at Rs 222 with bundled IUC minutes of calling, but there is also the option of existing normal recharges

Highlights
  • The all-in-one recharges start at Rs 222
  • These recharges offer upwards of 1,000 non-Jio IUC calling minutes
  • These plans offer 2GB data per day
  • The Rs 555 plan comes with 3,000 non-Jio IUC calling minutes

The Mukesh Ambani led telecom operator, Reliance Jio, has had smooth sailing in the industry ever since its entry in the sector back in 2016. However, the ride got a little bumpy for the telecom operator when it hit the issue of the Interconnect Usage Charges (IUC) this year. The telecom operator realised that it was paying the net IUC to other telecom operators and spending Rs 3,500 crore annually on this paying other networks to carry out its calls just because the network symmetry was out of line and most calls were being made from Reliance Jio. After dragging the matter in the industry, Reliance Jio ended up bringing the IUC charge to the customers as well, meaning that the subscribers would now have to pay the IUC. On thee lines, the telco has also introduced all-in-one plans which ship the benefit to the consumers, just like the name suggests. Here is how you can choose between the two kinds of prepaid plans.

Rs 222 All-in-One Reliance Jio Prepaid Plan

So, the first all-in-one prepaid plan from Reliance Jio is the Rs 222 prepaid plan and it comes with 28 days validity. In this period, the customers would be able to enjoy 56GB or 2GB data per day. Along with this, the subscribers would also be able to enjoy Jio to Jio unlimited calls, which is something the operator has been long providing to the subscribers, but with this, it will also offer 1,000 non-Jio calling minutes. The telco will also offer a subscription to its apps as well, which has been a long-existing benefit with its prepaid plan. It is worth noting that there is a separate prepaid plan from Reliance Jio which costs Rs 198 and it offers the same benefit to the subscribers of 2GB data per day except the IUC minutes. For that, the subscribers would have to get the additional IUC minutes, which come out to be Rs 100 for 1368 minutes, meaning that the total value of the prepaid plan goes up to Rs 298.

How All-in-One Prepaid Plans are Better?

Similar is the case with the next all-in-one plan as well and that is the Rs 333 prepaid plan. The benefit under this plan remains almost the same with 2GB data per day, but the validity of this plan is more as compared to the Rs 222 prepaid plan. This plan offers 56 days validity and the benefits of the plan include 2GB data, or 112GB total data, unlimited Jio to Jio calling, 1,000 non-Jio FUP calling minutes, subscription to Jio apps in addition to 100 SMS per day. For subscribers, wanting to have a long term solution, there is also the Rs 444 and Rs 555 all-in-one pack which means that subscribers can choose to enjoy these benefits for 84 days. While the validity of these two plans doesn’t differ, the difference is in the number of non-Jio IUC minutes offered.

The Rs 444 all-in-one plan offers 1,000 non-Jio IUC calling minutes, whereas, Rs 555 all-in-one prepaid plan offers 3,000 non-Jio IUC calling minutes. It is also crucial to note that at the same time, Reliance Jio has got the Rs 448 prepaid plan, where it is offering 84 days validity, and 2GB data per day but the IUC calling has to be bought separately. This means that the all-in-one prepaid plan is a much better deal as subscribers enjoy 2GB data for the validity of 84 days and they even get free IUC minutes bundled too. For this reason, the subscribers looking to have plans with IUC should opt for the all-in-one prepaid plans from Reliance Jio instead of the separately selling IUC plans.

444 rs plan seems steal to me, you can use 50 rs voucher + iuc minutes carry forward, unless you are call geek, 1000 mins are lot.

So recharge with 444 one time, then continue with old plans (399rs)

LoL, yes airtel is the biggest fraud in telecom sector. History sheeter. Criminal. Thug. In that case Vodafone and idea was much better. Airtel was and still now the evil cartel leader. Vodafone and idea just followed it helplessly unless their market share could get hit. Though jio is not a saint but comparatively best as a customer’s point of view. Leave aside business perspective. Remember 250 per gb? Unethical balance deduction by way of VAS activation? Segmented offers? Profitable circles vs non unprofitable circles differentiation? Hidden terms & conditions? Only 1 tower of 4g in a city and declaring… Read more »

This is because you have experienced Avoid lot more than Airtel. Down the history line, I hope your statements will change automatically(provided Vodafone-Idea doesn’t exist). I have not experienced anything abnormal from Airtel as I didn’t use Airtel before January 2018. People were asking me to change my mind a lot but I went ahead and had great experience on Airtel. Maybe in past it would have been evil. Right now it’s not in my experience for sure. All the above mentioned things cease to exist only and I repeat only because of jio. Many many jobs and companies have… Read more »

I had used all operators except BSNL before jio’s entry. So I can easily tell you what avoid did those times.

After entry of jio avoid compelled to curb those unethical balance deduction because most plans became unlimited without the requirement of recharging talktime balance.

About job loss and rock bottom tariffs I had replied to you earlier. But as a customer’s point of view that’s none of our concern. If indeed monopoly or worst comes then I will only recharge talktime balance for calls on mobile and will take home broadband with wifi for data. Problem solved.
