Reliance Jio is offering 2GB free complimentary data to its customers to ease their month-end recharge woes. The telecom giant had released a similar tariff voucher for Jio subscribers last month and now it’s crediting users account with free data with a validity of four days.
The news comes as many users on Twitter have posted that their respective Jio accounts have been credited with a new Jio Data Pack tariff plan that offers complimentary 2GB data per day for four days. As the month’s ending, Jio is ensuring that customers who can’t recharge their accounts in due time are given a breather and to this effect, the Jio Data Pack is being offered for free.
It’s not clear as to what a Jio subscriber has to do in order to avail the free data pack as the company seems to be crediting users whose tariff plan validity is going to end in the next three-four days.
Open the My Jio app and click the hamburger menu icon with three lines. Select My Plans from the list of options and you’ll be taken to a screen that details your current plan. If you’ve received Jio’s free data pack, there will be a card with the details of the tariff plan.
The Jio Data Pack doesn’t extend the validity of your existing tariff plan and instead works as an add-on pack in case your data validity ends soon.
Reliance Jio is also offering revised tariff plans owing to everyone working from home due to the country-wide lockdown that’s in effect to curb the spread of Coronavirus in India. Previously, TRAI had also asked telecom operators including Jio and Airtel to extend the validity of their respective prepaid plans. Jio has also released new Work From Home tariff plans that offer more data for a month’s validity. Vodafone-Idea and Airtel have also released similar plans to aid its subscribers.
Recently, Facebook invested $5.7 billion in Reliance Jio Platforms and both the companies are now working together to strengthen the retail market by leveraging WhatsApp.
