Jio Promises to Redefine Postpaid Services in India, Launches Rs 199 Plan With 25GB Data

One of the biggest letdowns for Reliance Jio in the current scenario is its postpaid plans. While Jio’s prepaid plans are unbeatable, it’s postpaid plans are nowhere close to the competition. Today, Jio promised that it would redefine the postpaid services in India. The all-new JioPostpaid service will be available for subscription starting May 15, 2018. Under the JioPostpaid service, the telco’s primary focus is to provide affordable postpaid plans and redefining the international roaming meaning. For the users looking for a plan within India, the telco has come up with a Zero-Touch plan of Rs 199. On top of the existing plan, Jio will be providing affordable international call rates.

As of now, we don’t have any info on whether the earlier postpaid plans will be retained, but with JioPostpaid, the telco has strengthened the postpaid offerings suited to the requirements of postpaid subscribers. Today, Jio has introduced a new ‘Zero-Touch‘ postpaid service. Under the service, the telco is offering a postpaid tariff plan, which comes pre-activated with all the services such as voice, internet, SMS, and international calling.

JioPostpaid Unlimited Plan of Rs 199
Under this plan, Reliance Jio is offering unlimited voice calls and SMS without any limit per month. In terms of data, the plan provides 25GB of data per billing cycle and the plan also comes with Jio apps premium subscription, preactivated ISD and international roaming calling option. However, it doesn’t offer international roaming call though.

So Reliance Jio is touting the JioPostpaid as ‘India’s First Zero-Touch Service Experience.’ The JioPostpaid service as mentioned comes pre-activated with all the necessary benefits and it’s an unlimited plan, meaning there won’t be any high overages, bill shocks and unpredictable bills with the service. Reliance Jio also has the Auto Pay service, which can be activated manually and the company will also be providing an e-bill option, which allows the user to check the bill in real-time.

That said, Jio has always been a prepaid service provider, and the international roaming service in the past was messed up one. However, Jio is turning things around, especially in terms of international roaming benefit.

The JioPostpaid plan offers unlimited voice calls and SMS within India at Rs 199, and the international calling rates start at 50 paise per minute. Of course, as you might be aware of, the international calling rates differ from one country to other. And Jio is offering International roaming at home-like rates, which is Rs 2-2-2. It breaks down as follows- Rs 2 for a minute for voice, Rs 2 per SMS and Rs 2 per MB of data consumed.

Also, there’s no Security Deposit required to start international services and the calls start at 50p per minute as mentioned above. There’s no need for a rate cutter or service charges involved with the JioPostpaid service. Sadly, Jio did not annouce the data roll over feature with this plan though.

Nothing will be changed even if they redesigned the whole industry. After giving so much free service they are till in last position after Airtel. Idea and Vodafone after such long 2 years.

They are already ahead of idea in terms of revenues. Idea clocked some 6200 crore in Jan – March quarter , where as jio crossed some 7100 crores. So jio is no 3 behind airtel & Vodafone.

They will be crossing voda in terms of revenue by the end of the current financial year.

In 2 years, they’re already at No. 4 with almost 19 crore users who are exclusively on 4G in a country which had a low number of 4G handsets to begin with. That is a phenomenal achievement in and by itself without even considering the revolution they created.
