We are 5 members (all having Jio) and it's costing Rs 15k/year which is huge! Pls suggest ways through which this can be reduced!

Go with jio postpaid plans 399 and above

And add multiple family members with different plans @ 99 per member

For 3 sims

Postpaid Jio - 399 + 99 + 99 + 18% = Rs. 704 / month = Rs. 2113 / quarter

Prepaid - Rs. 395 x 3 sim = Rs. 1185 / quarter

@ShivaSarkar That's exactly what I did last year. However, the ₹1,559 annual plan offers far better value because

- 24GB data upfront instead of 2GB/month, so you are not restricted. You can use 3GB in a month and then 1GB in another, or the whole data in one go.

- If you need additional data and purchase a data add-on, it'll give validity till the validity of your base pack. So if you consume all of your data in the 3rd month and even purchase the smallest data pack, it'll be validy for another 9 months.

If you have 5g Android phone with vonr then recharge with 1559 recharge. Free unlimited 5g data.

There are 2 ways:

1. Reduce usage: Airtel has plan ₹455, which provides 6gb data for 84 days validity. This will reduce per head expense from 3k to 2k.. You can look for similar plan in Jio.

2. Increase your earning: Itna kamao ki ye 15k sirf 2 din ki income lage..
