The incumbent telcos have modified their plans around Dhan Dhana Dhan to retain customers. The company has killed its Summer Surprise offer and introduced a new plan called Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan. In spite of the fact that, the offer cases to give unlimited free STD and local calls, users get 1,200 minutes on calls made to different systems and 300 minutes of free Airtel to Airtel. Hence most of the images of the phone, which you have been seeing online are probably fake ones.

Once you've sent the message, you'll be enrolled for the scheme. They should cover any long vacation you may have planned.

Under the plan, users are not required to activate any pack.

"Say, you are travelling to Singapore and haven't activated any pack". All the other services of Jio including the voice calls, SMS, and content services are free as well for 84 days.

If the usage charges are less than Rs 499, the users will only be charged on the rates that are applicable, the email added. "This will ensure that you always get the best value", the email explains.

Rs 249 plan: This plan the company said will offer 300GB data per month and is available only for new subscribers. Whereas, if your team manages to enter the Finals, your data benefit will be tripled and if your favourite team wins the tournament (IPL 2017), you will get four times the data benefits.

In its latest offering, country's largest telecom operator in terms of subscriber base has to offer extra 10GB data free for its existing post-paid customers. Yet, India is also making 4G data far more accessible to consumers through competition and its rapid rollout of new LTE networks. At the same time you get 168 GB 4G data if you are Prime user and go for 2GB data cap. In the next couple of days, all users who have not recharged their number will be disconnected by the company.

Rs 509 plan: Jio Prime customers would get 2GB per day for 84 days along with unlimited calling and SMSes on local, STD and roaming. Unlimited calls, SMSes and other Jio services are also included in the plans. Users will be charged at 30paise/minute after the FUP limit. And now, some users who didn't subscribe to Jio deals are reporting about the disruption in services.

The Rs 19 Plan for Jio Prime users comes with 200 MB data, 100SMS and complimentary subscription to Jio apps along with free voice calls, but it is valid only for one day.

One customer reported that he received 6 GB of free high speed data up on availing the offer.

Airtel is also offering a Rs 244 plan for its pre-paid users.
