Recharge Your Reliance Jio No. Via Paytm: All Prime & Non-Prime Plans
Reliance Jio has joined forces with Paytm for enabling its subscribers to recharge their Jio phone numbers via Paytm platform.
Jio users could recharge their mobile numbers only via Jio.com or MyJio app but from today onwards, they would be able to do Jio recharges via Paytm mobile wallet and enjoy a host of benefits offered by Paytm from time to time while recharging their number.
Jio servers crashed on 1st March, the first day to enrol for Jio Prime, due to heavy load as millions of Jio users were trying to subscribe to Jio Prime membership. This incidence revealed the need for other payment options for recharging Jio numbers, and as a result, the company has now tied up the leading mobile wallet provider in the country.
List of Reliance Jio Packs Available For Recharge on Paytm
Paytm currently supports recharges for Jio Prime and non-prime plans. You can also use it to subscribe to Jio Prime membership, valid for 1 year, by paying Rs.99.
However, it doesn’t support any Top Up, and full talk time plans at the moment.
Rs. 499: Jio Prime & Non-Prime Plan
Using Paytm you can recharge your Jio number with Rs. 499 Prime and Non-Prime plans. Kindly note that Rs. 499 Prime plan offers the same benefits as under the current ‘Happy New Year Offer’ but with an increased daily FUP limit of 2 GB/day for 28 days.
On the other hand, Rs. 499 non-prime plan offers 5 GB data, 100 SMS/day, and unlimited voice calls for 28 days.
I could not find the highly coveted Rs. 303 plan on my Paytm account, but many others have reportedly subscribed to it via Paytm.
Reliance Jio: Data, SMS, and ISD Plans
Paytm will also allow you to recharge your Jio number with Rs. 51 data pack (1 GB, 1 day), and Rs. 301 internet pack (6 GB, 28 days).
