This becomes an even more value-for-money offering when you factor in the full 30-day-long validity which means a true one-month validity. This recharge pack extends the benefits of 2.5GB of mobile data per day, unlimited calls, and up to 100 free SMS per day. Additional benefits also include a subscription to Jio apps and services. 

Airtel – Rs 399 Plan

Bharti Airtel, India’s other big telecom giant, offers a Rs 399 recharge plan which offers a 28-day validity. This plan offers users access to 2.5GB of mobile internet, unlimited calling and 100 free SMS per day. This plan additionally offers Disney + Hotstar mobile subscription for three months.

Vi – Rs 399 Plan 

Vodafone-Idea (Vi) offers a Rs 399 plan that aims to cater to customers in the sub-Rs 400 range and offers an identical plan as Airtel. Vi offers its users 2.5GB of mobile data per day as well as unlimited calls and 100 free SMS per day. This pack too is valid for 28 days. Vi also includes a three-month access to Disney + Hotstar mobile subscription to customers who opt for this recharge pack. 

BSNL – Rs 397 Plan

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has a recharge plan for this range which commands a Rs 397 price tag. This sub-Rs 400 recharge plan offers great value for customers as it offers a two-month or 60 days validity! The plan offers 2GB of mobile data per day instead of the 2.5GB daily quota which is the norm in this range. However, BSNL matches its offering with others in the segment and offers – unlimited calls, 100 free SMS per day and incoming call validity of 200 days.
