Reliance Jio has added two new plans to its portfolio. The new Jio 199 and Jio 299 plans – being dubbed Happy New Year 2018 plans by the telco – aim to offer daily data benefits to those with limited budgets. Apart from daily data benefits, the two new plans come with free voice calling, national roaming, SMS, and Jio app benefits for Prime members, just like other Reliance Jio plans.
First up is the Jio 199 plan, which will offer 1.2GB of 4G data per day for a validity period of 28 days. That means users can theoretically get 33.6GB of high-speed data, at an effective cost of less than Rs. 6 per GB, apart from the free voice calling and other benefits included in other Jio plans. The other new plan is the Jio 299 plan, also with a validity period of 28 days. However, you get 2GB of high-speed data every day, with speeds capped at 128Kbps post that, the same as in other plans. All other benefits are the same in both plans.

The Rs. 509 Jio recharge is valid for 49 days and will get you 2GB of data per day. As mentioned before, all plans come with free voice calling, national roaming, SMS, and access to Jio’s services for Prime members.
Recently, Reliance Jio decided to extend the cashback benefits on offer for customers buying high value recharges. First launched in early November, the Jio Triple Cashback offer provided Jio Prime customers benefits worth up to Rs. 2,599 upon recharges of Rs. 399 or higher. Last month, the company had extended the cashback offer’s deadline to December 15, and earlier this week, the offer was extended till December 25.
