Reliance Jio vs Airtel vs Vodafone vs Idea Cellular vs BSNL: The Top Data, Calling Plans on Offer


The Jio momentum has made significant entry into India’s telecoms sector in September last year and has completely changed the way it operates.

Free calls and Jio data forced market leaders Airtel, Vodafone, Idea Cellular and BSNL to launch the competition plans, a trend that is expected to continue at least until Mukesh Ambani’s brand began its paid services.

However, even after the payment of the Jio service in April this year, rivals have continued to distribute prepaid packages and postpaid plans. In fact, the market sees a new plan announced by the telecommunications companies.

However, this offer did not last long – with TRAI ordering Jio to end its supplementary services – and was separated by Reliance Jio in a matter of days. As a replacement, the company proposed a similar offer to that of Dhan Dhana Dhan Jio for key users offering 1 GB of data per day up to three months for Rs. 309 and 2 GB of data per day up to three months at Rs. 509.

There is a big difference between the summer surprise offerings and Dhan Dhana Dhan however – three more months of additional services.

If you were one of the first people to opt for Jio first and perform a later recharge of Rs. 303 or higher value, to be eligible for the summer surprise offer, which gave free data free, SMS and free application services to three months, after which the Rs. Load value 303 (or higher) take effect.

Customers who do not take advantage of the summer offer Jio La surprise and who were to offer Dhan Dhan Dhan Jio did not receive the services previously described free for the first three months.

The value is loading Rs. 309 and Rs. 509 per day covering 1 GB and 2 GB per day up to three months respectively. After three months, customers will have to restart their Jio number to continue their services.

Now that the Jio summer surprise offer began to expire adopt for the first time, Jio launched new projects to ensure customers get the best deals. First, there are the Rs. 399 Dhan Dhana Dhan Jio providing for an additional 84 days, providing 1 GB of data per day, and all other services.

ARMY SPOOKS UNDERTHESCANNER An army probe issues arrest warrants for two generals as it discovers discrepancies in a deal with a private firm. Result: No procurement of sensitive spying equipment.


By Sandeep Unnithan

Intelligence for refusing to join a two- year-old probe into irregularities in military intelligence procurements.n ongoing army investigation has revealed the complicity of army officials and irregulari­ties in a contract with a private sector software firm. The inquiry took a dramatic turn on June 5 this year, when a military court issued arrest warrants for former director general of military intelligence Lt General B.S. Thakur and Major General D.N. Asija (retired) of the Directorate of Military

The probe has simmered with­in the army for over two years. The army ordered a Court of Inquiry (Col) in 2013 after military intelligence offi­cials complained about irregularities in the procurement of satellite inter­pretation equipment from a Mumbai- based private sector software firm, Rolta India Limited.

The Ministry of Defence has placed
on hold a Rs 165-crore contract with Rolta to supply 27 Photogrammetry and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to the army because of these complaints. The contract was to have been signed in 2011 but was stalled after the controversy broke out that year. The slow-moving probe has paralysed the army’s procurement of newer GI systems critical for process­ing spy imagery, say army officials. The




The Col is looking into charges of irregularities in a Rs 165-crore deal for 27 spy satellite processing systems for military intelligence

army’s requirement for the systems is meanwhile mounting as old systems are in need of replacement.

Major General Asija’s refusal to join the probe, however, is curious given that he was one of the officers who recommended an inquiry in 2011. The inquiry conducted in Sena Bhawan by a brigadier-ranked offi­cer has, so far, established close links between the Directorate of Military Intelligence (MI) and Rolta.

The Col has not established any financial wrongdoing because the contract did not go through. It has, however, found certain procedural deviations where the Directorate of MI insisted, reportedly on specious grounds, that procuring systems from new vendors would create problems of interoperability and integration.

Lt General Thakur, who was DGMI between 2011 and 2013, let irregular­ities prevail in the directorate, army officials told india today. Lt General Thakur and Major General Asija did not return calls or messages seeking comment. Responding to a question­naire from india today, a Rolta spokes­person clarified that the company was not an accused in the army Col. The company strongly denied contractual and financial discrepancies in annual maintenance contracts and denied holding back contractual obliga­tions. “Rolta provides comprehensive maintenance services for integrated systems, as contracted,” said M.K.

detected irregularities in a Rs 165- crore contract for purchasing 27 mobile and static photogrammetry and GIS systems. The systems—for command and truck-mounted units for mobile formations—are used to create three-dimensional imag­es of ground data collected from spy satellites, drones and aircraft. These 3D images are laid over GIS software to create a digital library of military targets.

The case came to light quite by accident. Colonel Sujeet Banerjee was posted as officiating director of the Mi’s sensitive 17th directorate (MI-17) that dealt exclusively with spy imagery. He was a stand-in for Colonel M.K. Chakraborty who was away on a month’s leave. The directorate is the nodal agency for processing satellite photographs from various commands and sends it down to various army formations. MI-17 also receives spy imagery from the National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO) and the Defence Image Processing and Analysis Centre (DIPAC) within the Defence Intelligence Agency.

A majority of these imagery tasks were carried out by systems the army had procured for over Rs 500 crore from Rolta between 1996 and 2008. Colonel Banerjee found discrepancies in the annual maintenance contracts the army had signed with the firm. The software had been purchased from three foreign firms—Oracle,
