Reliance Jio has announced a new Rs 499 4G prepaid recharge voucher. Under this plan, users get 91 GB data over a period of 91 days, with a limit or FUP (Fair Usage Policy) of 1 GB per day. This plan is similar to the company’s Rs 459 plan, which offers 84 GB data over 84 days. This prepaid offer appears to be limited to the MyJio app as we could not find it listed on company’s website.

If we look at yearly data offerings of Jio’s Rs 499 and Rs 459 plans, the former offers 364 GB in total while the latter gives 420 GB data in all. Assuming people decide to go with the company’s Rs 499 plan for a year, they’ll have to recharge with the same amount four times in a year, spending Rs 1,996 yearly. In order to cover a year with Jio’s Rs 459 plan, users will have to recharge five times and spend Rs 2,295.

Remember, data restriction for these plans is 1 GB per day. If we look at Jio prepaid plan of rs 4999, it gives 350 GB data for 360 days (less than 1 GB per day), and there’s no daily FUP. Of course, Jio’s Rs 499 and Rs 459 plans make sense on a yearly basis as they offer more data and cost a lot less. However, Jio’s Rs 4,999 recharge voucher is best suited for people who do not want to restrict their data usage to 1 GB per day. Plus, it does not require recharging multiple times in a year.
Another long-term prepaid from Reliance Jio is that of Rs 1,999. It gives users 125 GB 4G data over 180 days. To cover 360 days (a little less than a year), users will have to recharge with Rs 1,999 twice and they’ll get 250 GB in total. The yearly recharge amount here adds up to Rs 3,998.
