Jio has announced new ‘All-in-One’ plans for its JioPhone. The company had recently announced ‘All-in-One’ plans for regular users starting at Rs 222 going up to Rs 555. These plans came bundled with free calling to Jio numbers, come with 2GB daily internet and 1000 minutes of free calling to non-Jio numbers. Reliance Jio announced these ‘All-in-One’ plans after it recently introduced IUC or Interconnect user charges (IUC) charges for customers at the rate of 6 paise per minutes. The IUC charges apply to all calls made from Jio numbers to non-Jio numbers.
The JioPhone ‘All-in-One’ plans start at Rs 75 and go up all the way to Rs 185. The plans also bundle free IUC calling minutes or what Jio calls ‘offnet minutes’. This means JioPhone users will be able to make calls to non-Jio users without having to purchase the IUC top-ups by relying on these new packs instead.

Validity is one month or 28 days, which means 0.5 GB of data per day.
The Rs 155 plan comes with 28 GB data and 500 offnet minutes and unlimited calls for all Jio numbers. This plan is valid for 28 days as well and has 1GB data per day.

The daily data limit is 2GB.
