Additionally, Jio has introduced a special unlimited monthly plan of Rs 199. The network is providing free voice, unlimited data (1GB daily), unlimited SMS and Jio apps. It has a validity period of 28 days. Under the Jio offer, users will have to get 10 recharges done on their Jio number to get ten Rs 100 cashback, equating to a total of Rs 1000.
