“With these new plans for India, users can now purchase prepaid plans without enrolling in an ongoing subscription and enhance their viewing and listening experience with all the paid membership benefits for the period that they pay for,” the company said in a statement on Monday.
The new YouTube Music prepaid plans in India start from Rs 109 for a month and Rs 309 for a period of three months.
The YouTube Premium prepaid plan, on the other hand, is priced at Rs 139 for one month and Rs 399 for three months.
