Rival private telecom operator Reliance Jio earlier this month announced its Diwali offer for its customers. Ahead of the Diwali festival, Reliance Jio had launched two new offers for its mobile users — an unlimited annual plan of 1,699 and 100% cashback on mobile phone recharges. In the unlimited annual plan of 1,699, users get access to unlimited data (maximum of 1.5 GB per day of high speed internet), unlimited voice calls, and 100 free SMSes per day.

In the second Diwali offer, Jio’s prepaid customers can recharge 149 or more to get 100% cashback in the form of coupons, which can be used for buying goods at Reliance Digital stores or MyJio stores.
