After factoring in the discount Reliance Jio is offering on recharge through MyJio app and making a payment through PhonePe wallet, the Rs 149 pack, for example, will effectively cost Rs 120 and offer 3 GB data per day, free voice, SMS and for 28 days. Similarly, Reliance Jio users who want recharge through the MyJio app mode, the Rs 399 pack will effectively cost Rs 299 and offer 3 GB/day data, free voice, SMS for 84 days.
Reliance Jio’s aggressive offering has taken the market by storm by forcing other operators to lower tariffs. News agency Press Trust of India, citing data from the telecom ministry, said that mobile data tariff in the country has reduced by 93% in last four years.
