Jio Add-On Plans

Let me begin by explaining what are these Addon packs & how they work. Let us take an example..

Suppose, you have recharges Jio with 149 Rs which gives 300 MB 4G which is valid for 28 days. But if you use it heavily & exhaust all 300 MB within 2-3 days then you can’t buy this pack again until 28 days validity expires.

So to continue with that plan, you have to wait for a month. To get rid off this problem, you have add on packs.

Here are the details :
Price (Rs) 4G Data Validity
151 1 GB
251 2 GB
451 4 GB
1001 10 GB
1501 20 GB
2501 35 GB
4001 60 GB
5001 75 GB

How to Recharge Jio Sim?

After welcome offer, everyone will have to recharge their jio sims. But how to do it? We have listed some solutions here:

  1. Offline method : Visit the local stores & topup Jio as you normally do with other sim cards.
  2. Recharge jio Online : Now you have 2 options. Click here to visit Jio’s official recharge page. You will see different tabs for mobile, wifi, broadband, JioLink etc. Below that, it will be given as ‘I would like to recharge my____’. Just enter the mobile number/email id & click on submit button. Then choose your plan & make payment via credit/debit card to complete to recharge jio online
  3. Using third party apps : This is the best option to go with because you not only get faster recharge but additional cashback too. I will advice you to use Freecharge, Paytm or Mobikwik to recharge your reliance jio sim.

Are Reliance Jio plans worth?

According to me, Jio plans hold good only if you are looking for high speed internet & mainly free voice calls. As per TRAI (telecom regulatory authority of India), it is mandatory to keep voice charges at minimum tariff of 14 paise per second. In simple words, a telecom company including Jio can not provide free voice calls. So there is possibility that Jio will raise it charges in coming days. Note that, this is just my opinion & actual condition may vary.

Jio plans have nothing much lucrative other than free calls. Their 4G plans are as costly as other companies. As I have previously mentioned, they do offer unlimited night data with every pack which is valid between 2 AM to 5 AM only which I think is slightly unfair but it’s always better to have something than nothing!

Final words : Use Jio plans only if you want to experience crystal clear free calling service & high speed 4G internet. 

Comparison : Jio 4G Vs Airtel Mega Saver Pack

In last month Airtel launched mega saver pack to compete with Jio. I have mentioned its details here along with activation process.

Mega saver pack comes in 2 packages:

  1. 747 Rs : 3 GB data on the spot which is valid for 28 days. For next 6 months, you get 1GB @ Rs 97 or 2.5GB @ Rs 252 per month.
  2.  1498 Rs : 6 GB on the spot for 28 days. For next 12 months, you can enjoy 1GB @ Rs 53 or 2GB @ Rs 97 or 5GB @ Rs 252 per month.

Since there is no plan available in Jio close to 747 Rs in Airtel, we will choose 1498 Rs for comparison.

Jio 1499 Rs Plan Airtel 1498 Rs Plan
20 GB per month 6 GB instant + 5GB @252 Rs per month
In 1 year, you will get 240 GB data by spending almost 18,000 Rs In 1 year, you will get 72 GB data at 4500 Rs (approx)
Per GB cost : 75 Rs Per GB cost : 62.5 Rs
Validity : 28 Days Validity : 12 months
Free calls Free calls

Right now, I don’t know how many times we can recharge Airtel per month with 252 Rs pack. But if it gets applied multiple times then it is sure-shot best option.

Jio Net Plans Vs Vodafone 3G Plans

Cost Jio 4G Vodafone 3G
149 Rs 300 MB 450 MB
300 Rs 2GB 1GB + 1GB Night data
499 Rs 4GB 3.5 GB
1499 Rs 20 GB 15 GB


  • Free calling for lifetime.
  • Good 4G speed in the range of 5 to 50 Mbps.
  • Free night data.
  • HD voice quality.
  • Strong signal strength.


  • Data rates are not much different that Airtel or Vodafone.
  • 4G handset is required to access sim.
  • Customer support is not up to the mark.

Which jio plan is better for me?

  1. If free calling is your first priority then go with Rs 149 plan. Why? Because it is only lowest plan which has validity of 28 days. Rs 19 & 129 are valid for just 1 days & 7 days respectively.
  2. If you use data only for whatsapp & online chatting, then Rs 299 plan is ideal. It gives you 2GB 4G along with unlimited local + national sms.
  3. Heavy internet users : As I can see, most of the Jio 4G plans & Airtel, Vodafone plans are similar. Both of them give you 10GB data @Rs 999 per month. In this case, you can stick to current provider or switch to Jio if you want free calling along with 4G.
