Mobile Prepaid Plans Comparison

We Indians are always on the lookout for what offers the best value for our hard-earned money whether it is buying a car with superior mileage, (yes, “kitna deti hai?” matters the most), or getting a smartphone with best features, and even searching for cashback coupon codes before doing an online recharge.

Now as Reliance Jio has disrupted the Indian telecom market, most of us have a temporary Jio number. You would find very few people who are using Jio SIM as their primary mobile connection. While we all are tempted to use Jio as our primary connection but can’t do so due to various reasons, we all want the best plan from our current telecom operator.

We did some research about the same and here are some of the best prepaid plans from top Indian telecom operators which offer the best value for your money:
