Jio, represented by Senior Advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, stated that the deception and misrepresentation inherent in the advertisements are aimed at enticing and luring viewers to subscribe to Airtel's telecom service and give preference to it over other telecom service providers in the market. The validity of Airtel 499 plan is 82 days.

In its petition filed before the court, RJio accused Airtel of advertisements that "explicitly and falsely proclaim that the company is offering live and free access to Twenty-Twenty (T20) cricket coverage".

Airtel's 3GB data per day plan has been priced at Rs 349. In comparison, Reliance Jio is proving 3GB data per day at Rs 299, with other benefits remaining the same as the Rs 198 plan. The charges will be as per the data plan availed of by the subscriber and thus is not free. This plan is part of the company's 1.5GB data per day plans.
