Although, with the aggressive newly launched New Year and Republic Day Plans within the two weeks, the flagship marked himself again in the telecom market. The JioPhone has, in fact, become so popular that it has propelled Reliance Jio to become the leading feature phone brand in India during Q4 2017, according to data released by research firm Counterpoint Research. The Jio Republic Day offer is going to give users 500MB extra on 1GB and 1.5GB data per day plans it now offers. The Rs. 49 pack offers free unlimited voice calls and unlimited data for 28 days.

The positioning of Jio Phone as a smartphone effectively as a "free" phone also worked for the company.

"JioPhone users will enjoy free voice calls and unlimited data (1GB at high speed) for 28 days at a price of only Rs. 49". The plan previously offered unlimited Airtel-to-Airtel calls, but now it has been upgraded to offer unlimited local and national calls, along with unlimited roaming.

Due to the increasing competition, incumbent operators had announced their own plans to take on Reliance Jio's Happy New Year 2018 plans.

With these new plans, JioPhone users can further benefit from data affordability offered by Reliance Jio. The plan offers 1.4GB daily 3G/4G data and validity of 82 days. To avail of the refund, one needs to recharge for a minimum Rs 1,500 a year. Plan 399 of Jio offers 70GB data is now change to plan 349 and now comes with 105GB data. The validity is 84 days.
