Things to note

The Reliance JioFiber plan is available for existing customers using direct debit facility from their core balance. Also, Jio, in the official listing, has mentioned that the plans are available for “customers possessing a compatible Customer Premise Equipment (CPE).” Those not having the CPE can buy it after paying a refundable deposit. There are two models available at Rs 1,500 and Rs 3,500, respectively.

Reliance Jio users can queue recharges ahead of tariff hike

All major telcos, including Reliance Jio, Airtel, Vodafone Idea and BSNL have announced that there will be a tariff hike on December 1. Prepaid tariff plans are likely to rise by 15-20 percent. So, the current Rs 199 prepaid plan may retail at around Rs 220 or more. Ahead of the tariff hike, users can queue prepaid recharges to avoid paying more.

The way this works is pretty simple. Say your Reliance Jio prepaid plan validity expires on November 30, and you recharge today (November 29). When you check the plan validity, it will show the expiry date, along with the date when the new plan will be activated. Similarly, if the current plan is expiring on December 15, and you do the recharge right now, it will show that new plan activates on December 16. You can check this on MyJio app.
