New Delhi: Reliance Jio has announced new ‘all-in-one’ plans which will be effective from December 6 onwards, stated news agency IANS. Notably, the cost of the new tariff plan has been raised by 40 per cent, added the report.

 “Jio will be introducing new ‘all-in-one’ plans with unlimited voice and data. These plans will have a fair usage policy for calls to other mobile networks. The new plans will be effective from 6th December 2019,” news agency IANS quoted Reliance Jio as saying.

Note that, despite the 40 per cent increase in the Jio tariff rate, Reliance has promised to adhere to its ‘customer-first’ policy, stated a report. Reliance Jio customers will now receive up to 300 per cent additional benefits including unlimited voice calls and data pack, stated the Telecom major.

Besides, Reliance noted that as a technology disruptor and force multiplier, Jio “acutely understands” the transformative role telecommunications and digital services are playing for the Indian economy and society and it is “determined” to strengthen the telecom sector, keep consumers at the centre of everything, benefit Indian consumers and take measures including appropriate increase in tariffs in a manner that does not adversely impact data consumption or growth in digital adoption and sustains investments.

Earlier in the day, both Vodafone Idea and Airtel announced revised tariff plans with higher prices effective from December 3.
