New Delhi: If you are a Reliance Jio user then there is some good news for you.Reliance Jio is in mood to end its Happy New Year offer, despite TRAI's objection. Under the offer users get free voice, video cals and 4G data till March 31. Airtel objected to it, and then TRAI had sought clarification from Reliance Jio.
In its reply to TRAI, Reliance Jio has reportedly said that the company has not violated norms that limit promotional offers to 90 days. The company said that its new offer cannot be termed as an extension of its inaugural promotional offer.
Jio in its reply said that the tariff plans comprise many components and any change in one of them changes the offer, therefore, the Happy New Year plan is not an extension of the Welcome offer.
In the first offer, there was no option given for renewal or payment after a user exhausted the 4GB limit, but in the new offer, both data and the promised speed can be recharged.
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), in a December 20 letter, the regulator had asked why the offer, which gave away free data, should not be seen as predatory. (News24Bureau)
