As it is the festive season, Reliance Jio has announced a new yearly prepaid plan for its subscribers. This tariff plan priced at Rs. 1,699 offers 547.5GB of 4G data to its users. The new prepaid plan joins the other long-term prepaid plans priced at Rs. 4,999 and Rs. 9,999 having 1 year validity. But the difference is that it comes with a daily data limit.

The new Rs. 1,699 Jio prepaid plan offers unlimited voice calls, 100 SMS per day and 1.5GB of 4G data per day for a validity period of 365 days. Eventually, the overall data benefit offered by this plan is 547.5GB. Similar to the other prepaid plans from the telco, this plan offers truly unlimited voice calls without any FUP limit.

With all these benefits, this is the cheapest prepaid plan in the country. Earlier BSNL offered some yearly prepaid plans priced above Rs. 2,000. But this plan has surpassed all the other yearly tariff plans.
