Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited (Jio) has announced that the Jio Summer Surprise has been fully withdrawn, following the advice of Telecom Regulatory authority of India (TRAI).
The all new Rs 309 plan
The new Rs 309 all unlimited plan, provides unlimited SMS, calling and data (1GB per day at 4G speed) for 84 days on first recharge.
So, there is hardly any difference between the current Rs 309 plan and the Summer Surprise offer. While the latter was offered free for three months on paying Rs 303, now you have to pay just Rs 6 more and get the same number of days free.
In short, those who did not subscribe to the Summer Surprise offer are only losing Rs 6.
The company also announced the Rs 509 all unlimited plan for daily high data users offering Unlimited SMS, calling and data (2GB per day at 4G speed) for 3 months on first recharge.
Dhan Dhana Dhan
The Rs 309 plan is called the Dhan Dhana Dhan offer and you get 1 GB data free every day. On your first re charge of Rs 309, you get 84 days validity and the subsequent recharges would entitle you for only 28 days validity, 1 GB data with voice calls completely free.
Can still subscribe for prime benefits
Considering the special benefits that are available to Jio Prime members, customers who were unable to subscribe to Jio Prime for any reason, can continue to do so by paying Rs. 408 or Rs. 608 (Jio Prime + recharge price) to avail these benefits.
Migration from free to paid
Jio is currently implementing the world's largest migration from free to paid services in such a short period of time.
"In order to smoothen the migration from free to paid services, Jio has implemented simple, affordable and regulatory compliant plans in customer interest. Jio looks forward to customers making full use of this opportunity to avail the most attractive tariff plans in the industry, which are unparalleled globally," the company said in a release.
"With this, Jio extends the benefits of a superior and advanced technology to take India to global digital leadership. Jio's unmatched data strong network is capable of meeting the burgeoning data requirements of hundreds of millions of Indians. The announcement also marks another step in Jio's commitment to continuously delight its customers and enable them to live a fully digital life," the company said in a release.
