The official Jio website will now let you compare Prime packs against non-Prime packs, which shows how keen the company is to get this plan going. The latest Rs 345 plan announced by the telecom operator offers 1 GB of high speed 4G data per day along with free Local and STD voice calling.

This Jio Prime membership is for a year, from March 31 2017 to March 31, 2018. In case you are a new Idea 4G customer, you get 1GB of data per day making it 28GB of data for 28 days.

The scheme seems similar to recent Airtel's low-priced data plans that include a higher data limit and unlimited local and STD calls. Though Reliance Jio will start to charge customers from April 1, it has announced a slew of aggressive prepaid and postpaid plans.

Idea Cellular has launched a similar plan to that of Airtel, and is offering 14 GB data along with unlimited voice calls to any number in the country at just Rs. 345.

The tariff war between telecom operators in India took a drastic turn today when Vodafone, Airtel and Idea took the fight straight to Jio by launching plans that counter their Rs 303 Prime membership plan. Vodafone India introduced a Rs 342 plan, which offers users unlimited calls and 28 GB of data per month, capped at 1 GB per day.

How Do These Offers Fare Against Jio Prime? It claimed that Reliance Jio caters to 85% of mobile data traffic in India now and can support more than 60% of the data market by 2020-21.

That's not all. By speaking to retailers and various channel partners, brokerages have also discovered that Jio has other tariff plans on offer, each promising to deliver maximum bang for the buck.

Last month, Ambani had launched Prime offer and had said that his company would offer 20 per cent more data than the best selling plan of its competitors for the same price. So in totality, you are getting 28GB of free data and unlimited voice calls for Rs 346. However, if you get a Jio SIM from March 4, 2017 onward, you'll automatically be a Prime Member. You can make unlimited calls to local and national numbers, be it a mobile or a landline number.

For Vodafone customers, there is no membership required to avail the offer. This means that customers get 14GB of data for 28 days. For subscribers who recharged for Rs.499, an additional 10GB of data would be provided.

For Airtel offer, just recharge with the amount based on your circle and that too has to be done this month, i.e. before March 31st. On the other hand, a non-prime user will get 2.5GB data at ₹303.
