So, which company offers a better plan?

If you want a lot of data, Airtel might not be the best plan for you. However, if data is not a preference and the user requires to make a lot of calls then Airtel might seem like a better option. 

For budget users, Airtel seems like a better option as it has a longer validity. Airtel offers a validity of 30 days while Jio just offers a 23-day validity when purchasing the ₹199 plan. 
Hence, if we're looking for longer validity then Airtel is the option to go with and if data is the priority, you can go with Jio.
