Mumbai: There is bad news for Jio users, who are enjoying free data and free calls as part of Reliance Happy New Year Offer. The offer will end on March 31, but after that users will get data services at a nominal rate, combined with free voice calls, for another three months. However, the new tariffs will be cheapest in the country.
Now, Jio is preparing for the post-March 31 scenario. It is working on a newer and cheaper plans. Reports say Jio may come up with a Rs 100-offer for all its users. And it may ask Jio users to pay Rs 10 each month for three months until June-end for free data and free voice calls after March 31.
Such a plan will help Jio to retain users after March 31, and help it counter allegations of the competitors that extension of Jio free offer beyond December was against the TRAI norms that govern introductory offers. TRAI norms allow such offers for only 90 days. (News24Bureau)
