So now we come to the question which plan is better? Well, if we compare, Reliance Jio's Rs. 509 plan gives around 50 percent more data. However, customers are required to pay a security deposit of Rs. 600 to avail Jio's plan. And, there is a limit on daily data usage, which can be frustrating for some users.

The Airtel's Rs. 499 plan, on the other hand, has no such requirements. So if you don't need a lot of data, you probably should stick to the Rs. 499 plan from Airtel. Alternatively, you can try out Airtel's Rs. 799 plan which offers similar benefits to the Jio plan, but it doesn't have any daily cap on data usage.
