The Jio Rs 401 recharge pack seems to have an edge over the Rs 401 recharge offer offered by Airtel. While both packs offer 3GB data daily for 28 days, Jio offers additional 6GB data and unlimited free calls for Jio to Jio and 1000 minutes for Jio to non-Jio mobile. Additionally, there’s also 100 SMS/day available for Jio customers. Airtel on the other hand, doesn’t offer free calling or free SMS in its Rs 401 pack.
