Reliance's Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone Idea (Vi) announced plan increases a few days ago. As of today, July 3, Jio and Airtel's revised plan rates are in effect. However, as of tomorrow, July 4, Vodafone Idea's plan tariffs will be implemented. This implies that you will be required to pay more for their services if you have been using any of these three connections. The telecom firms provided a window for customers to recharge using the previous plans before the new rates take effect, which may come as bad news to those on a tight budget.
