The latest news in the telecom industry in India seems to be about the introduction of new tariff hikes in the industry. All the telecom operators have followed one after another to join this bandwagon which will prove to be a little expensive for the subscribers. Even the public beloved, Reliance Jio, which is known for its attractive pricing and consumer-centric offerings did not hold back this time and announced that it would be hiking the tariffs in the coming days. In a way, Reliance Jio has already hiked the tariffs with the introduction of the IUC charges on the outgoing calls. However, in the coming days, the prices of all the plans are going to take a jump. But, for the subscribers, there is a way to escape this tariff hike, at least for a while. Although the tariffs will increase in the coming weeks, there is nothing to stop the subscribers from getting prepaid plans in advance at a lower rate. Hence, the subscribers of Reliance Jio can stack up on prepaid plans beforehand and avoid recharging later at a higher cost. Here is how you can do it.
Recharge Queueing Explained
To understand what we are implying here, you will first have to understand that Reliance Jio allows the subscribers to queue their recharges. This means that you can buy a recharge on top of another recharge and when your first one expires, the next one will be in the queue. This ensures that the money you spent on the second recharge does not go in vain and you make use of only prepaid recharge at a time. Now using this feature of Reliance Jio, the prepaid subscribers can queue their recharges by buying them before the price hike and enjoy the benefits well into the next year. While the other subscribers will be paying up 30% or more for the same benefits, you will keep on enjoying the data, voice and other benefits at lower rates.
How to Queue Recharges in Reliance Jio and Activate Them
When you do a recharge on top of your existing recharge, all the information about it will be available in the My Jio app, which is basically your avenue for everything Jio-related. Therefore, you will find all the information and settings related to your plan here. In your MyJio app go to the My Account section and over here you will have to tap on the “View Details” button. Now, you will be able to see all your plans and recharges. On the top, you will be able to see your current recharge and the one that is activated. Now, to activate your next recharge, you will have to tap on the “activate” button which is located right beside the listed recharge. On the confirmation pop-up, press the “confirm” button, and you will receive the confirmation now after the activation of the plan. Now your second plan has been activated.
Which Recharges to Queue?
Reliance Jio subscribers might also have the question about which recharge plans they should go for. To this, we would say that the ideal recharge plan for the subscribers would be the All-in-One prepaid plans. Also, getting the all-in-one prepaid plans with the most validity would be the sensible choice. Going by that thought, the subscribers can opt for the Rs 444 plan which offers 84 days of validity, 2GB data per day, 100 SMS per day and 1,000 IUC minutes. For subscribers who want more outgoing calls to other networks, the Rs 555 prepaid plan with the same validity, 2GB data per day and 3,000 IUC minutes could be the better choice. The All-in-One plans are available also for Rs 149, Rs 222 and Rs 333.
