Bharti Airtel`s new data plans are unlikely to impact Reliance Jio`s market share as the latter`s plans are still competitive, said a report by Credit Suisse. Airtel has recently introduced two new schemes -- Rs 48 plan that gives 3GB data with 28-day validity, and Rs 98 plan with 6GB data and 28-day validity.
