Reliance Jio since its entry in Indian telecom market has kept on taking the market by storm. With the offers of unlimited free voice calls, high-speed 4G Data, free messaging, and unlimited video browsing, Jio soon turned into a national sensation. To grab a free Jio SIM, cellular subscribers are spotted standing in long queues in front Reliance Stores for hours, or even whole day.
Initially, the Mukesh Ambani-owned company announced its free service for three months and offer was slated to fold up on 31st December. But after getting the clean chit from Indian Telecom Authority, the administrators of Jio decided to extend the offer until March 2017. Though the official confirmation is yet to publish, the media reports are indicating the extended offer to be announced on 28th December.
To recall, 28th December is the birthday of late Dhirubhai Ambani, the former owner of Reliance Industries and father of Mukesh Ambani. If the market reports are to be believed, Reliance may extend its ‘Jio Welcome Offer” for three more months, and the declaration will be held on 28th December.
If the sourced reports are accurate, the Jio subscribers will now be able to enjoy the Welcome Offer up to March 2017, rather than the earlier scheduled finishing on 31st December. Some previous reports suggested the Welcome Offer fold up on 3rd December, as per the guideline of TRAI. But Jio earlier has confirmed this report to be a hoax and the offer will go on. However, the extensive data is yet to be disclosed by the owner of Jio.
Shaking Indian telecom industry up, Reliance Industries on 1st September introduced its free voice calls, free data, and roaming services under its Jio Brand. The offer came into power on 5th September, and users get the option for enjoying all most every cellular service for free of cost. Welcome, Offer under which Jio is declared to provide free data, voice, and video to users until December 31, 2016, but later reported to extend it until March 2017. However, as nothing is confirmed yet, we need to sit tight for 28th December for official authentication
