Ever since its inception, Reliance Jio has been the leader in the tariff plans department. To recall, the Mukesh Ambani-owned telco refreshed its tariff lineup back in January 2018, but still, it's offering the best plans in the industry. Reliance Jio has a monthly prepaid recharge plan of Rs 799 which gives a whopping 140GB of total data benefit, spread across 5GB data per day. Right after Jio rolling out this plan, incumbent telcos such as Airtel and Vodafone also joined the league by launching a similarly priced plan. However, they both lag behind Jio in terms of the benefit offered.

Right after Jio launching its prepaid recharge plan of Rs 799, Vodafone also came up with its own similarly priced plan. However, Vodafone is lagging the data benefit department. Vodafone users recharging with the Rs 799 plan will be able to enjoy 4.5GB daily data benefit along with voice calls and 100 SMS per day. Vodafone is also capping the voice calls to 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week.
Furthermore, Vodafone's plan is not valid across the country and it's applicable only in 4G circles. Vodafone is yet to launch 4G services in circles such as Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, Madhya Pradesh & Chhattisgarh, among others. Jio's plan is valid across all the 22 telecom circles in the country.
Like Jio users, Vodafone users will also get a free subscription to Vodafone Play, but unlike its RED postpaid plans, Vodafone is not providing any Amazon Prime subscription to prepaid users.

Airtel users will also get a free subscription to Airtel TV, Wynk Music and of course, free Amazon Pay Gift Card worth Rs 51.
