Users will also be offered unlimited access to Reliance Jio’s suite of apps, including JioPlay, JioOnDemand, JioBeats, JioXpressNews, JioSecurity, JioDrive, JioMags and JioMoney, etc.
What’s more, the greater the usage, the lower the cost will be, and the rates could go down to Rs 25 per GB.
As you can see in the picture, the most affordable plan starts from Rs 149 per month and offers free voice calls, 0.3GB of data, unlimited access to Jio apps, and 100 SMS.
