Reliance Jio Republic Day Offer: Per day data limit hiked by 500 MB on popular plans

Jio revised its plans earlier this month to offer more data with its popular 1GB data per day recharge packs, and launched new plans with 1.5GB daily data allocation as part of the Happy New Year 2018 offer. However, Jio plans to rejig its plans once again as part of a Republic Day 2018 Offer that it will announce in the next couple of days, Gadgets 360 has learned. Under the new offer, Jio users will get up to 50 percent more data on plans priced Rs. 149 or above. The changes will come into effect at 12am on January 26, 2018.
The company’s 1GB data per day plans are priced at Rs. 149, Rs. 349, Rs. 399 and Rs. 449, with validities of 28 days, 70 days, 84 days and 91 days, respectively. However, with the Jio Republic Day Offer 2018, customers will get 50 percent more data as the daily high-speed data cap will be raised to 1.5GB per day. This means the 1GB data per day plans are effectively phased out, at least till the Republic Day offer continues.
Similarly, the 1.5GB data per day plans will now offer 2GB of high-speed data a day. So customers will now get more data with the Rs. 198, Rs. 398, Rs. 448 and Rs. 498 plans. This pretty much leaves the Rs. 299 plan redundant as subscribers will be able to get the same benefits (2GB per day for 28 days) at Rs. 198.

Rs. 4491GB per day1.5GB per day91 days136GB
Rs. 4981.5GB per day2GB per day91 days182GB

The Rs. 98 Jio plan is also being revised to offer twice the current validity as part of the Republic Day offer. Users will get validity of 28 days at Rs. 98, up from 14 days. However, the 4G data allocation with the plan is 2GB for the entire 28-day period; customers presently get 150MB of 4G data per day data with the pack.
Customers will have to buy a new recharge pack on or after January 26, 2018 to avail the data benefits under the Jio Republic Day Offer. The new recharge pack will be queued, and will come into effect once the current plan’s validity runs out. For example, if a subscriber has the Rs. 349 plan with 70-day validity that ends on February 29 and then buys the Rs. 349 recharge after January 26, they will get 1GB data per day in February, and then 1.GB per for 70 days from March 1. Alternatively, they can cancel the active plan in the MyJio app and activate the 1.5GB data plan as soon as they buy it.
