11 May 2018

Reliance Jio has introduced a "zero-touch" feature for its Jio Postpaid plans, wherein all postpaid services such as voice, internet (data), SMS and worldwide calling will be pre-activated, according to the company.

The first plan under the new Jio Postpaid service is priced at Rs. 199 and comes with 25GB of high-speed 4G data per month and some other benefits. According to the company, global calling and worldwide roaming will be offered to the users without any additional monthly charges or security deposit.

Jio also shared the details of global roaming packs.

All three plans include unlimited voice calls (local calls in global destination and calls to India), unlimited SMS, and unlimited data with fair usage limits.

As for worldwide calling, ISD facility is already preactivated without any security deposit whereas for global roaming, users need to activate it by "one click". Also included is the one-click activation of worldwide roaming services without any charges.

With JioPostpaid, Jio claims to have strengthened the service offerings suited to the requirements of postpaid subscribers by introducing the "Zero-Touch" Postpaid.

Airtel and Idea are expected to launch new plans in response to Jio's offer and thus see a further decline in their average revenue per user, it adds. That essentially means it comes preactivated with all the services like voice, internet, SMS, and worldwide calling. Currently, the minimum Jio postpaid plan comes at the price of Rs 309 and users who want to avail the new Rs 199 plan, it will be available from May 15.

Reliance Jio's postpaid plans come with auto-pay option for users. There is also another higher tariff plan Rs 2,875, which same benefits as above, but the validity is for 7 days.

JioPostpaid brings a differentiated connected living experience to post-paid mobile users and will challenge the industry status-quo by offering the lowest tariffs in India and overseas to the post-paid users, Reliance Jio said.

In this plan, users get a total of 20GB of 3G/4G data for one billing cycle coupled with unlimited local, STD and roaming voice calls along with unlimited SMS. Subscribers of this plan can watch movies and TV shows for free as there is free 12 months subscription to Vodafone Play.

Global roaming is offered to Jio consumers in two slabs depending on the country the subscriber is visiting.

The postpaid plan, however, will make more sense for people whose data consumption is not uniform. The Mukesh Ambani promoted Reliance Jio is offering free voice and SMS to all on its 4G network.
