On Sunday, Airtel, Vodafone Idea and Reliance Jio announced hiked prepaid tariff plans that will come into effect later this week. Airtel and Vodafone both revealed new increased prepaid recharge plans that will be effective from December 3rd. Jio, on the other hand, announced it will be introducing new All-in-One plans in the country with effect from December 6th. These plans won’t offer truly unlimited calls as a fair usage policy for calls to other mobile networks will be levied. Jio is yet to reveal the updated all-in-one prepaid plans, but the telecom operator said that they would be priced up to 40 percent higher than the current plans prices, but will also get up to 300 percent more benefits. It was previously speculated that the telcos would hike recharge plans prices by up to 20 percent.
In a statement to the press, Jio said it 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.
