After the incumbent telecom operators, Reliance Jio has also announced that it would hike the tariff by 40% on its All-in-One prepaid plans

Highlights
  • The new hike would be implemented on December 6
  • The telco would introduce new AIO plans
  • The plans would also come with 300% more benefit

The telecom industry is currently undergoing another massive change as we speak now. Today happens to be another big day in the telecom industry as all the telecom operators are taking their chances to hike the tariff. As expected, the first move today came from Vodafone Idea, with the next move by Bharti Airtel. This leaves out another popular operator in the industry, which is Reliance Jio. The Mukesh Ambani led telecom operator had issued another press release today in which it has reiterated some details about the tariff hike which it is going to pursue in the upcoming days. To recall, after the announcement of Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel, Reliance Jio had also joined the unison in informing its subscribers that it would increase the tariffs of the plans in December. Now, this time around, Reliance Jio has informed its subscribers about the quantum of the tariff hike and how much benefits they would get after the increase in the pricing of these plans. It is worth noting that Reliance Jio has not announced any specifics about the plans.

Reliance Jio New All-in-One Prepaid Plans

The first thing to note here is that Reliance Jio has announced that it would introduce totally new All-in-One plans or AIO plans which would come with a 40% tariff hike. To recall, the all-in-one plans by Reliance Jio are the latest offerings in its roster which bundle everything from data, SMS, unlimited calling to Reliance Jio network and even some IUC minutes which the subscribers can use to make calls to other networks priced at 6 paise per minute. However, this new announcement means that the prices of these AIO plans by Reliance Jio will take a jump by 40% and hence, the subscribers will have to pay more for them in the coming days.

Reliance Jio Tariff Hike Date and Price Increase

Another thing to note about Reliance Jio’s tariff hike on the prepaid plans is that the telecom operator would hike the prices starting December 6. It is worth noting that the incumbents have already hiked their prices and they would start retailing the new plans with hiked prices earlier than Reliance Jio on December 3. On the other hand, the Mukesh Ambani led telecom operator, Reliance Jio, has remarked that it would start offering these new tariffs from December 6.

Coming to the benefits of these new all-in-one plans by Reliance Jio, the telecom operator has noted that it would be shipping benefits which would be 300% more along with the price increase. So, the subscribers can imagine that although Reliance Jio would hike the price, it would also increase some of the benefits of these all-in-one plans as well. With this, Reliance Jio has also noted in its release that the all-in-one prepaid plans would still come with a cap on outgoing calls to other telecom operators.

Vodafone Idea Also Increases Tariff By 40%

If we are to compare the incumbents, we would see that Vodafone Idea has hiked the tariffs by as much as 40% on some of its prepaid plans. The plans in the lower rungs, especially the ones which come with 28 days validity have received around 25% price hike. Whereas, the plans with 84 days validity and yearlong validity have received around 30% and 40% price hike respectively in addition to the introduction of a cap on outgoing calls to other networks. Bharti Airtel, on the other hand, has stuck to the unlimited calling benefit while raising the tariffs for the subscribers.

That’s a made up chart based on pricing 30 to 40% more. Don’t believe that chart. Wait for official Jio news.

What loot? It needs to be at least 500 per month but with only 1000 minutes and 10Gb data.

Facts don’t care about your feelings. So, none of the operators will give 10GB data and 1k minutes at Rs. 500.

Although you have increased the rates by 40%, you haven’t increased data by 300%.
