The Jio ‘Dhan Dhana Dhan’ offer by Mukesh-Ambani-owned Reliance Jio has indeed created a chaos in the market. After the end of the complimentary service period, the company introduced its rate for the plan. As soon as the complimentary service period was over, the company offered a whole new offer for the Prime users in form of Jio ‘Dhan Dhana Dhan’ offer. Under this offer, users will get 1 GB of data per day along with unlimited voice calling and access to Jio apps for a validity of 84 days for just Rs 309. Another version of this offer gives the users 2 GB of data per day along with unlimited voice calling and access to Jio apps for a validity of 84 days for just Rs 509.

Since the entry of company in the market, the call rates have dropped down drastically. Other telecom giants have also dropped their rates in order to countereffect the Jio rates. Airtel and Idea are among the top contenders that have introduced the new plans.

Speaking of Airtel offers, users can also get 3000 minutes of free voice calls to any network, 300 minutes of free voice calls for Airtel to another network with a limit of 1,200 minutes per week, as well as 1 GB of high-speed Internet data per data with a validity of 70 days for Rs 399. Post the limit of the call data, users will be charged Rs 0.10 per minute. The same offer is also provided for Rs 345 but with a validity of 28 days and a limit of 2 GB of data per day.

Moving towards Idea, users can also get 300 minutes of free voice calls for Idea to Idea network, 1,200 minutes of free voice calls for Idea to another network, as well as 1 GB of high-speed Internet data per data with a validity of 70 days for Rs 348. Post the limit of the call data, users will be charged Rs 0.30 per minute. This offer is valid for selected users only.

And hence, this is the reasons behind the drop in call rates.
