Reliance Jio has announced special initiatives for JioPhone users as India battles a second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. The company is making calls accessible and affordable for all customers, particularly those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, in these unprecedented times of the Covid pandemic.
Jio has announced two special initiatives for the pandemic period to ensure this:
Plan 1: Jio, in collaboration with the Reliance Foundation, will offer JioPhone users who have been unable to recharge due to the ongoing pandemic 300 free minutes of outgoing calls per month (10 minutes per day) for the duration of the pandemic.
Plan 2: In addition, for every JioPhone plan1 recharged by a JioPhone user, they will receive a free additional recharge plan of the same value. A JioPhone user who recharges with a Rs 75 plan, for example, will receive an additional Rs 75 plan for free.
In just two weeks, the Reliance Foundation opened India's first Covid-19 care hospital, which now has 2,325 beds spread across Maharashtra and Gujarat, including intensive and special care, treatment, and isolation facilities.
"Reliance is committed to standing with every Indian during these challenging times, and will continue to make every effort to enable our fellow citizens to overcome the difficulties created by the pandemic," Reliance Jio added.
Jio has made significant changes in the Indian digital services space, enabling the vision of Digital India for 1.3 billion Indians and propelling India to the forefront of the global digital economy.
