Airtel announces Rs 199 plan to counter Jio

In other words, for instance, you are making ten calls in a day each having one hour duration, you would still be able to enjoy the perks of Reliance Jio's services without any disturbances. Further, users will have a restriction of 300 minutes per day and 1200 minutes per week.

Airtel Rs. 198 plan: In this plan, Airtel is offering unlimited local and STD calls along with 1GB of mobile internet data for a validity of 28 days. For Rs 509, Jio is offering unlimited 2GB data per day subject to a maximum of 112GB at 4G speed for a period of 56 days.

Under the new offer, users will get 1GB of 4G/3G/2G data, unlimited local + STD calls for 28 days. We were also told that to re-activate the affected user voice call service, Rs 149 would be recharged.

Therefore, to sum up, Jio is restricting voice calls, but only for buyers who are misusing the scheme.

However, Jio is only putting this limit on those who are found to be misusing this service. Jio has also clarified that such a cap existed for a very long time and it's not new.

"This Plan is intended only for personal use of included services". A user of Jio Network claimed in the last week that Reliance Jio has set a deadline for voice calls between two people. The Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio has recently updated its Rs. 149 plan. RJIL reserves the right to discontinue the free Voice benefits offered as part of this Plan in case of misuse/ fraudulent use/ unauthorised telemarketing and commercial use.

The benefits includes Jio Prime membership worth Rs 99, Rs 399 data plan which gives data and free voice for 84 days and 5GB data each month on a minimum recharge of Rs 149, for nine months worth a total of Rs 1,809. Contemporary telecom companies such as Airtel and Vodafone also maintain some restrictions on daily usage on their network.
