According to the source, the unlimited on-net plan was added to the account of a prepaid user whose plan was expiring on May 11th. Apparently, the user was on the Rs 98 prepaid plan and the plan was scheduled to expire on May 11th. However, the user was in for a pleasant surprise when they noticed that the telco had added a 24 hour grace period with unlimited on-net calling to the account.

For the uninitiated, on-net calls implies those to the same network, in this case, other Jio users. However, It’s not known yet whether Jio is adding this plan for all users or just a select few or in some circles. This a good initiative as it lets users continue to call other Jio numbers, in case they are unable to recharge immediately.

In other news, Reliance Jio recently launched new ‘Work from Home’ data packs priced at Rs 151, Rs 201 and Rs 251.  These plans offer 30GB, 40GB and 50GB data, respectively to the user. There is no daily data limit on these plans, as they will last for the existing base plan’s validity on the user’s account. This makes them ideal for heavy data users.
