As per Reliance Jio, the entitlement for off-net calls in Jio’s ‘All in One Plans’ is more than 5 times of what an average customer uses as per industry data and consequently, an average Jio customer is unlikely to have to ever pay for off net calls.

Off-net calls refer to outgoing calls made on other networks.

Jio in its new plan is offering up to 25 per cent more value than comparable plans of other operators, the company stated. Jio is offering 1,000 minutes per month (28-day cycle) of free calling every month across all plans.

The statement comes after Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea recently removed the cap on outgoing calls limit outside their network with effect from December 6, 2019, after Reliance Jio rolled out mobile call and data plans priced up to 40 per cent compared to previous offerings.

Earlier, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea had capped outgoing calls to other networks at 1,000 minutes in plan with 28-days validity, 3,000 minutes in 84-day validity and 12,000 in 365 days validity. Beyond this limit, customers were required to pay 6 paise per minute for outgoing calls made to other networks.
