According to the company, Jio Phone users will be given 100 minutes and 100 SMS for making voice calls and messaging anywhere in the country at no cost, respectively, till April 17. Apart from this, all Jio Phone users will continue to receive incoming calls even after the validity is over.
This decision has been taken to help Jio Phone users in this difficult time. However, the telecom giant is yet to announce any such benefits for its regular Jio customers.
Recently Jio launched ‘Recharge at ATM’ service to allow regular users to recharge their account directly from the nearest ATM. Customers can also recharge through digital channels such as the MyJio app or Jio.com website or through recharge platforms such as Google Pay, PhonePe and Paytm. Apart from this, the company is also providing the facility of recharging through an SMS on Axis Bank and ICICI Bank.
