Jio effect: Airtel Rs

But with leverage at Idea and Vodafone going out of whack and constraints on capex already impacting market share perhaps a rethink is in order. Graphic Naveen Kumar Saini  Mint

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited () has increased the validity of its unlimited call and data packs of Rs. 186, Rs. 187, Rs. 349, Rs. 429, Rs. 485, and Rs. 666 to please its prepaid subscribers.

1GB Data Plans of Jio - The 349 prepaid plan of Jio now offers 70GB data with unlimited calls including all calls and the validity of this plan of Jio is now 70 days. The validity of this pack is 70 days.

In the past, Airtel has launched competitive offers to take on Jio's continuing onslaught on tariff rates in India's telecom scene. It is worth noting that each of the new BSNL pack includes unlimited local, STD, and roaming calls (excluding Mumbai and Delhi regions) alongside the 100 SMS limit, which is applicable to unlimited packs offered by other telcos in the country as well. This takes on Jio's Rs. 98 pack that has same benefits, albeit with a limit of 140 SMSes and an extended validity of 14 days. Before the revision, Vodafone customers doing recharge of ₹458 or ₹509 were offered free local and STD voice calls, free outgoing on roaming, 100 local and national SMS per day, and, 1 GB 3G/4G data per day. Plan 398 of Jio offers 105GB data for 70 days. Under this scheme, pre-paid plan priced at Rs 485 will offer 1.5GB data per day with a validity of 90 days.


Previously, Airtel offered 1GB 3G/ 4G data per day along with the other benefits for a validity of 28 days. In the same way, a recharge of Rs 666 will give 1.5GB per day data with a validity of 129 days.

Vodafone offers 1GB 4G/3G data per day at Rs 509. This means users will get a total of 91GB data for 91 days. Further, Jio also offers unlimited voice calls on all networks in India, 100 SMSs daily, and free subscription to Jio apps.

This is a promotional offer from BSNL which will offer its customers 2GB of free 3G data with a validity of 30 days.
