Meanwhile, Jio is yet to detail its updated all-in-one recharge plans. The MyJio app currently shows existing all-in-one plans, and customers can recharge their Jio number using these older plans until December 6. Jio will likely reveal its new recharge plans after it takes into account the new plans being offered by Airtel and Vodafone Idea.

In a statement to the press, Jio said, “the new all-in-one plans will be priced upto 40 percent higher, staying true to its promise of being customer-first, Jio customers will get up to 300 percent more benefits.”
