Airtel, Jio and Vodafone Idea have a slew of prepaid plans that cater to different usage based on your data needs, validity and even the fact that you need additional benefits from the telcos, like a subscription to an OTT platform or free caller tunes. But most prepaid plans have had this unique issue of not meeting the full quota of the period. For instance, if you want a prepaid plan with a one-month validity, telcos will give you 28 days; similarly, it comes to 56 days for two months.
But recently, that has been corrected, with all three telcos now offering prepaid plans that last for one month, which could be 30 or even 31 days, based on the months of the year. If you are looking out for such plans, then what we have here could help you decide to choose the best-prepaid plan with a 1-month validity from Airtel, Jio and Vodafone Idea (Vi).

One-Month Validity Prepaid Recharge Plans from Airtel, Jio and Vi: Which Plan Offers Best Value?
As you can see from the above table, Jio’s one-month validity plan is the cheapest of the three, but you compromise on the per-day data available. Airtel is giving you 2GB/day bandwidth for the whole period, which comes to a 60GB data allotment. Jio is giving 1.5GB/day of data, which translates into 45GB for the whole period, but you do pay Rs 60 less than what Airtel and Vi are asking for their respective plans. Vi also has its plan for Rs 319 that offers 2GB data per day and unlimited calls, but the other add-ons include binge all night, weekend data rollover and access to Vi Movies and TV app, which makes it an interesting option.
