  • Yes, this is true for every service provider for 4G or 3G or 2G.

    Prepaid plans are comparetively low as postpaid plans in term of rates but in terms of quantity and validity postpaid plans are low.

    For example relaince JIO has plan of 19 rupee in prepaid with validity of only 3 or 7 days, whereas postpaid plans are for full lifecycle means from 1 day to month end day.

    Generally prepaid has launched only for people who used mobile very rarely likes they have calls 1 in a day or messages 2-3 in a day or data 10mb a day. For targetting those kind of peoples, companies started prepaid and life time validity plans.

    But this came to be a major users to be moved in prepaid, so they planned for people who uses mobiles and services very frequently and launched postpaid plans
