It's been over a year that Jio took the telecom sector by storm and the data plans from its rivals just don't seem to end. In the latest move, Airtel has announced its new plan at Rs 199.

Airtel brings new recharge pack at Rs 199 which includes unlimited local as well as STD calls. And, users get 1GB data. 

Airtel's Rs 149 plan offers unlimited Airtel calls and 2GB data for 28 days. Recently, Jio updated its Rs 149 plan. Interestingly, Rs 149 plan offers 2GB data with a validity period of 28 days. Post the usage of the 2GB data, users needed to buy a top-up voucher. 

Airtel’s Rs 349 plan offers 28GB Data (1GB/Day) and unlimited local+STD calls for 28 days. 

Earlier, Jio had also updated its Dhan Dhana Dhan plans. One of the key changes was the Rs 399 plan that was updated to offer 84 days of validity over the 28 days it offered earlier with 1GB/day cap. The data has also been increased to 84GB. This means, users now get 84GB data for 84 days with a 1GB cap per day and free voice calls. This something Airtel plans to combat with its almost similar Rs 399 plan.
