Reliance Jio Services are no longer affordable: Everything you need to know

Reliance Jio

Reliance Jio services are no longer affordable. In a shocking development, Reliance Jio has increased the pre-paid tariffs by 20% for several plans starting July 3, 2024. The company has given enough time for the customers to recharge at the current rate. Reliance took to X (formerly Twitter) and revealed the news of the price hike. The existing customers went on recharge spree after the company issued the notification.

The sad story is that Reliance Jio has removed Rs 395 and Rs 1559 plans immediately after the announcement. There are reports that Jio has removed Rs 395 and Rs 1559 plans to save from loss. While the Rs 395 plan came with 84 days of validity of Reliance Jio services, the Rs 1559 plan shipped with 336 days of validity. These plans were highly popular among senior people who only used the service for calling purposes.

Even though you can recharge your device with existing plans, you cannot recharge with Rs 395 and Rs 1559 plans. If you recharge your connection with the existing rate, then have to pay the revised rate only upon its expiry. For example, if you recharge for one year, then you need to recharge only next year at the rate prevailing at that time.

If you are currently using Rs 1559 plan with 24GB early data, then you need to pay Rs 1899. Meanwhile, the 2.5GB data per day plan for the full 365 days costs Rs 3599. You can buy this plan if you intend to use your connection aggressively by watching TV, YouTube videos, and much more.

The 3-month plan with 1.5GB per day with 84 days validity costs Rs 666 now but after July 3 it will be Rs 799. This is a steep Rs 130 increase. Reliance Jio plans are not affordable now.
