TRAI had said that Jio will be required to roll back the 3-month complimentary offer in "shortest possible time" but clarified that customers who had already subscribed to the said scheme could avail the benefits till June-end. For example, if you recharged with Rs. 303 as a Prime member, from April 15th to July 15th is when you would get the free data of 1GB per day.
This will ensure the clear victory of Jio over other competitors by launching this new plans.
Interestingly, it seems like the minimum recharge limit for the first month, which used to be Rs 303, has now come down to Rs 149. Jio Welcome Offer was valid from September 5 to December 31, 2016.
Reliance Jio is at it again, it has just launched a brand new tariff plan only days after it had launched the "Jio Summer Surprise" plan for the Jio Prime members.
Bharti Airtel chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal also met today TRAI chairman R S Sharma and is believed to have discussed a range of issues, including the Jio offer, according to sources. But to maintain the credibility of its service, jio has now planned something big for the prime users.
"In our view, such promotion... on an offer held as non-compliant is a blatant violation and disregard of TRAI's advisory", Vodafone said in a letter to the regulator.
You can not avail the new Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan offer as you are already enjoying three months of free usage. They need to pay Rs 408 or Rs. 608 (Jio Prime + recharge price) to avail these benefits.
Reliance Jio, the telecom arm of Mukesh Ambani-controlled Reliance Industries, has announced Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan offer for its subscribers, after telecom regulator Trai last week recommended it to stop its Jio Summer Surprise offer midway.
The company also said that all customers who have subscribed to JIO Summer Surprise offer prior to its discontinuation will remain eligible for the offer. We'll have to wait and watch what kind of plans Jio comes up with and how soon. Interestingly there is no plan, currently, for postpaid users. While the Rs 999 pack gave users 60GB 4G data for 60 days, the Rs 9999 plan gave 750 GB of 4G data to users for a whole year.
Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan benefits for existing customers will start from 16th April 2017 onwards. Another difference is the Summer Surprise let users recharge with higher value for maintaining speeds and avoiding FUP. After that you will get the recharge benefits in the order of recharges you have done.
