Reliance Jio just recently started activating postpaid plans for individual subscribers which were earlier available only for Enterprise Subscribers. Jio’s Enterprise team was only authorized to activate postpaid connections for corporate employees. Hence, even when Jio launched these plans a year ago on their website, they were available for Enterprise customers.
As we all know, Jio will start charging its customers from 1st April 2017, the company has launched its postpaid plans for Jio Prime members as well as non-members. Jio is the only company whose prepaid as well as postpaid plans are same in price as well as benefits.However, postpaid plans starts from RS 303+GST per month and hence its of no use for customers who want to go with RS 149 plan which is only available for the prepaid subscribers.

How is Jio’s postpaid connection beneficial than prepaid ?
As Jio is the only Telecom Operator offering same plans in both prepaid as well as postpaid, most of the people will always opt for prepaid. However, if you do some mathematics, you will find that postpaid is always better than prepaid.
In prepaid you have plans with validity of 28 days and hence you get only 28 GB of data. However, in postpaid you get 30 GB of Data in a complete bill cycle. (Assuming you opt for Rs 303 plan )
If you are a Sole Proprietor and also a ‘Registered Tax Payer’ in GST, you will get input credit of the Tax you paid on your Jio bill . Additionally, you get 5% cashback if you use a cashback credit card to pay the bills.
In addition to this, you need not worry about monthly recharges anymore. So it is always a wise decision to opt for postpaid subscription than a prepaid subscription. In case you want to get rid of billing system for some reason, you can always migrate to the prepaid plan. In any case you won’t loose your Jio prime membership for sure.
