Earlier, Reliance Jio announced special offers for JioPhone users. The company said it would provide 300 minutes of outgoing calls per month for free to all the JioPhone users who could not recharge due to the pandemic.
Jio added JioPhone users would get 10 minutes of free outgoing calls per day and that this offer would be valid for the entire duration of the pandemic.
Additionally, Jio said every JioPhone plan recharge made by the users they will get an additional recharge plan of the same value for free. This offer, however, doesn’t apply to annual JioPhone plans or JioPhone device bundle plans.
