Reliance Jio again disrupted the voice calls and internet data tariffs after it decided to withdraw its “Summer Surprise” offer on telecom regulator TRAI’s advice. The company after withdrawing the “Summer Surprise” plan earlier this week launched a new scheme called “Dhan Dhana Dhan”, offering “unlimited” data under recharge packs starting from Rs. 309. In response to the “Dhan Dhana Dhan” offer other telecom players like Bharti Airtel,Idea Cellular and Vodafone have also come out with special recharge plans offering their customers free voice calls and high speed 4G internet. Recent reports also suggest that Airtel and Vodafone have done away with roaming charges to counter Jio’s free domestic roaming policy.
Here are some recharge plans released in the past few days to counter Jio’s offers:
Airtel Rs. 399 plan: Under this plan, cutomers will get 1 GB of high speed 4G internet data along with 300 minutes of calling per day for Airtel to Airtel customers (1,200 minutes per week) and 3,000 minutes of local and STD calling for 70 days.
