Reliance Jio has now made another alluring change in its tariffs by providing a Rs 50 cut from the monthly schemes that are used by the consumers to avail internet scheme.


Additionally, Jio has also introduced a couple of 1.5 GB/day packs. The validity of the plan is 91 days.

The Rs 198 plan comes with a validity of 28 days; the Rs 398 plan offers benefits for 70 days; the Rs 448 plan for 84 days, and lastly, the Rs 498 plan is valid for 91 days.
