Currently, Reliance Jio is offering 1GB of 4G data and unlimited calling to any network up to 31st March 2017. Starting April 1, Jio Prime subscribers will get unlimited data and calls till March 31, 2018, in return for a one-time registration fee of Rs. 99 besides Rs. 303 every month.

RK Mittal who is the BSNL Director for Consumer Mobility said that we are committed to providing affordable and efficient services to all segments of our loyal mobile customers. The prices have been fixed according to the current market trend on Indian telecom market.

The BSNL offer includes 2GB of 3G data with a 28-day validity and unlimited calling to other BSNL numbers.

Since Reliance Jio entered the Indian telecom space past year, it used "free internet" and "unlimited free outgoing calls" as tools to gain subscribers. At least with those networks, it was unlimited calls to any network capped to 300 minutes per day or 1200 per week.

The Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) on Thursday asked the sector regulator to re-examine Reliance Infocomm Jio Ltd.'s promotional free services offer and inform the tribunal about the outcome in two weeks. Additionally, Airtel is offering data at cheaper rates, slashing prices up to 80 per cent. The night timings are between 12 AM to 6 AM. In case, you want to opt out of timing restrictions, you can do a recharge of Rs. 549 STV.

Also, Vodafone charges Rs. 346 for a 28 days pack.

"Since change regarding limiting the offer to 90 days was requested after more than a month, RJIL (Reliance Jio) did not comply with the reporting requirement.Authority is directed to examine this issue", it said. Moreover, Jio is offering for complete one year while Airtel is giving free data for 3 months.
