"Jio will be introducing new 'All in One' plans with unlimited voice and data. These plans will have a fair usage policy for calls to other mobile networks. Although, the new plans will be priced up to 40 per cent higher, staying true to its promise of being 'customer-first', Jio customers will get up to 300 per cent more benefits," Reliance Jio said in a statement.
The telecom operator also said that it will take all required measures to sustain the Indian telecommunications industry.
