Reliance Jio welcome offer extended till March 31 for everyone: Mukesh Ambani


Prime VIP

RIL Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh D Ambani on Thursday announced that the Reliance Jio welcome offer has now been extended till March 31, 2017. The offer has now been renamed the Jio Happy New Year Offer. The TRAI had earlier asked Jio to end the welcome offer by December 3 and not to give the free services to new users after that date.
Addressing employees and customers, Ambani said in under three months Reliance Jio has become fastest growing technology company in the world, surpassing even Facebook. “Since its birth Jio has grown faster that Facebook, Whatsapp and Skype,” Ambani said, thanking Indians.
Ambani cited eKYC which has helped sign up six lakh customers every single day over the past six months ending the long queues and waiting periods. Jio now activates SIMs in under five minutes. Ambani called this the best experience anywhere in the world, adding that there were two lakh digitally enabled outlets in India now and said the number will double soon.
Addressing customers and employees through a live stream, Ambani said a Jio user is using 25 times more data than the average Indian broadband users. He, however, expressed his displeasure at existing service providers not helping Jio reduce call drops.​

Reliance Jio Happy New Year offer vs Welcome Offer

First, Reliance has not scrapped the ‘Welcome Offer’, but just renamed the offer. For starters, the users on the Welcome Offer will also be moved to the Happy New Year Offer from January 1, 2017. Also the free voice-call, video-call, free data and access to Jio apps has been extended till March 31, 2017.
All existing customer will continue to take advantage of the data, calls, and full bouquet of apps for free till March 31, 2017. Sadly new users who come on the Reliance Jio service after December 4 will be added straight to the Happy New Year Offer, and not to the Welcome Offer.

So how does that matter?

Well the Happy New Year Offer comes with an FUP limit that is only 1GB per day. Yes, that’s right; compared to the 4GB FUP on the Welcome Offer, Happy New Year will limit how much free high-speed data you can download on the Jio network.
Reliance Chairman Mukesh Ambani says this was done because some users are misusing their free data privileges and clogging it up for the rest of the people on the networks. This is not surprising to hear given this is free data we are talking about. Jio will reduce speeds to 128kbps after a user exhausts the 1GB limit on the Happy New Year plan.
