Reliance Jio has come with a Diwali gift for every Indian — Jio smart phones at only Rs 699.
Top officials of Reliance Jio informed on Tuesday that the company has taken another major step towards ensuring total digital inclusion of all Indians.
During the festive season of Dussehra and Diwali, Jio is making the JioPhone available for a special price of only Rs 699 as against the current price of Rs 1500.
This is a clear saving of over Rs 800 without any special conditions like having to exchange your old phone.
The price of the JioPhone is far lower than many of the current 2G feature phones in the market.
A lot of Indians could not upgrade from 2G to 4G services because of financial constraints.
Jio claimed the barrier that prevented feature phone users from upgrading to 4G services is now eliminated.
Against a commitment of Rs 700, that a JioPhone customer invests to buy a JioPhone and migrate from a 2G to 4G data world, Jio is promising to make an investment from its side.
This is Jio’s investment and a commitment towards bringing the neediest sections of Indian society into the internet economy.
For JioPhone customers who join Jio through the Diwali 2019 Offer, Jio will offer data benefits valued at Rs 700.
For first 7 recharges that the customer does, Jio will additionally add Rs 99 worth of data.
This additional data worth Rs 700 will enable JioPhone users to enter an unseen world of entertainment, payments, e-commerce, education, learning, train and bus booking, artificial intelligence apps and lots more.
The savings of Rs 800 on the JioPhone and the Rs 700 worth of data, totals to a massive benefit of Rs 1,500 on every JioPhone.
This benefit of Rs 1,500 is Jio’s Diwali Gift for a prospering digital India.
Jio invites all Indians using 2G services to make the most of this one-time offer available during the festive month and upgrade to the JioPhone platform.
Mukesh D. Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries Ltd said, “Jio will ensure that no Indian is deprived of affordable internet and the fruits of the digital revolution.”
