Reliance Jio on Friday unveiled its new set of plans to cater to the growing broadband requirement of people working from home in light of the Covid-19 outbreak. The company announced another work-from-home plan for prepaid users. It is a quarterly plan that offers 3 GB of data per day for just Rs 999 for 84 days.
