A Comprehensive Guide to Enjoying Reliance Jio Services

Reliance Jio services went live on Thursday, 1st September 2016. Chairman and Managing Director of parent company Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), Mukesh Ambani announced the tariff plans while officially launching Jio.

Benefits to customers

Also touted as the world’s cheapest data provider, Reliance Jio has completely eliminated the cost of voice calls. It has made lifetime voice calling free, in addition to pricing data at rates like 1GB/Rs. 50. This is not only helping Jio gain popularity but also praise in terms of its role in the digitization of India.

As Jio continues to focus mainly on the youth of India, the company is offering 25% extra data to students on the purchase of data plans.

Tariff plans

The world’s largest start-up allows users to select from ten of its data packages which range from small to XXX-Large. Valid for a period of 28 days, these plans will allow individuals to thoroughly enjoy premium Jio applications like JioOnDemand, JioBeats, JioPlay, and JioMags. The biggest plan, XXXL entails 75GB data and is priced at Rs. 4,999.

Purchasing Jio SIM cards

Interested individuals may visit their nearest Reliance flagship store like Digital Xpress or Reliance Digital. They would have to carry and submit the required documents which would include identity proof, address proof, and a photograph. However, once the e-KYC facility is rolled out over the next two months, individuals will be able to enter a store and walk out with Jio SIM cards in 15 minutes. The e-KYC service would also eliminate the need to submit physical documents, replacing these proofs with a valid Aadhar card.
