Users also get 300 free text messages for 28 days under this plan.
In this plan, JioPhone users get the same benefits as the ₹594 package, but only for 84 days (about three months). Just like the ₹594 plan, it includes unlimited voice calls, complimentary access to Jio applications, and 300 SMSes for 28 days.

It also sports a 2-megapixel rear camera and a 0.3-megapixel (VGA) front-facing camera. Connectivity options available on the JioPhone include single SIM (nano), 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.1, FM Radio, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS and microUSB 2.0. The device is powered by a 2,000mAh battery, and it runs on KaiOS as operating software.
It can run apps like YouTube, WhatsApp, Facebook and the Jio suite optimised for the KaiOS.
