Reliance Jio has been the go-to option for many users owing to the unlimited calling and data benefits that it offers on its prepaid plans. But in the latest move, the telecom operator withdrew its full talk time benefits that it is offering to its subscribers on the prepaid top-up recharges for quite some time now. As a result, the subscribers recharging with Jio top-up prepaid recharge packs would not get full talk time benefits as earlier. Coincidentally, the reduction of talk time benefits coincides with the IUC (Interconnect Usage Charge) introduced by Reliance Jio recently. Currently, Jio is levying a charge of 6 paise per minute on its customers for the calls made to other networks.
Reliance Jio Removes Full Talk Time Benefits
Reliance Jio has succeeded to garner the attention of many subscribers in the country by showering the customers with unlimited calling and talk time benefits. The most popular prepaid plan is the Rs 399 plan, which offers 1.5GB 4G data benefits per day, and unlimited calling valid for 84 days. Apart from this, there are other prepaid plans that offered 2GB, 3GB, 4GB and 5GB data benefits per day. Besides all of these, the telecom operator offers various talk time packs in its portfolio starting from Rs 10 to higher value of Rs 1,000. Earlier, subscribers used to get full talk value on all prepaid top-up recharge vouchers. But now the telecom giant has removed the full talk-time benefits with the introduction of IUC recharge top-ups.
For instance, the Rs 10 recharge now offers talk time benefits of Rs 7.47, the Rs 20 pack gives Rs 14.95 talk time, the Rs 100 recharge offers Rs 81.75 talk time, the Rs 500 recharge offers Rs 420.73 talk time and the Rs 1,000 packs gives Rs 844.46 talk time.
Reliance Jio Prepaid Plans Now Comes with Multiple IUC Options
With the latest move, all the prepaid plans of Reliance Jio now ships with multiple IUC talk time vouchers. As such, the customers have the option to opt for different prepaid plans bundled with IUC talk time voucher of their choice. The IUC top-up offers varying number of IUC minutes alongside the data benefits offered under various prepaid plans.
