Jio Phone users no longer have the Rs. 153 prepaid top-up plan that offered 1.5 GB of high-speed data benefit per day for 28 days. The Rs. Plan 153 was introduced back in July 2017 and received an update in February 2018 – along with the arrival of the Rs. 49 prepaid plan. In addition, Jio Phone users have been given unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS messages per day. The new change comes just days after Jio dropped the off-line domestic call charges it imposed due to Interconnect Usage Charges (IUC) last year.
The Jio site is reflect the removal of the Rs. 153 prepaid top-up plan. With the latest update, Jio Phone users have Rs. 185, Rs. 155, Rs. 125, and Rs. 75 as the four recharge plans to choose from.
Jio offers the Rs. 155 prepaid top-up plan as the closest option to the Rs. 153 plan. However, the former delivers 1 GB of high-speed data per day, as opposed to the latter with 1.5 GB of data allocation per day.
Details can be found in web archives propose that the Rs. 153 prepaid top-up plan was in place through at least December 31st. Some news outlets reported that in addition to the Rs. 153 plan, Jio has removed the Rs. 99, Rs. 297 and Rs. 594 Prepaid Top-Up Plans. This is apparently not the case, however, as these plans are not visible, at least in web archives until November 2019.
Gadgets 360 has asked Jio for clarification on the removal and will update this report if the company replies.
Earlier this month, Jio returned to offering free voice calls to other networks – after lowering the previous 6 Paise per minute off-net call charges. This move was the result of the Bill and Keep regime implemented by the Indian Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRAI) since January 1st.
