Jio Rs 98 prepaid recharge plan: The Rs 98 recharge plan was discontinued in May last year. Here’s what is new with it this time around.
Reliance Jio recently reintroduced the Rs 98 prepaid recharge plan for its customers. The Rs 98 recharge plan comes back to the arsenal of Jio prepaid recharge plans after over a year of absence and will carry a reduced validity now. Instead of being available for 28 days, the Rs 98 plan will now be valid for 14 days from the date of recharge.
The Rs 98 plan will also be Jio’s cheapest all-in-one plan in the Rs 1.5GB per day data category and will bring unlimited calling with 4G data. The plan had been discontinued in May 2020 just months after the telco had revised the Rs 98 plan with the 300 SMS messages benefit.
Rs 98 plan: What do you get and how to recharge
The new Rs 98 data plan offers a total data of 21GB with a 1.5GB per day data cap. The pack, which is valid for 14 days, also offers unlimited voice calls from Jio to Jio numbers as well as a subscription to Jio Apps. These include JioTV, JioCinema, JioNews, JioSecurity and JioCloud.
Users interested in making the recharge can purchase the Rs 98 plan from the Jio.com website. The plan is also available via the MyJio app and third-party apps like Google Pay and Paytm. Jio recently also offered other benefits like 300 minutes of free calling and a buy-one-get-one recharge offer for its JioPhone customers.
