According to the communication sent by the telecom regulator, Jio will now be offering free voice and data services only for a period of 90 days which ends on December 3.
The guidelines on promotional offer require all telecom operators to limit the promotional offers for a period of 90 days, hence, the shift in the date of the ending of the offer.
Earlier Jio had announced that all Jio users will be able to avail free voice and data services until December 31 and thereafter Jio users will have to pay only for data services, all voice calls will continue to remain free.
According to Business Standard, a Jio spokesperson said the Jio Welcome Offer or JWO “benefits of free unlimited Voice and data will be available to all subscribers up to December 31, 2016.” But, the “JWO will be available to new consumers for subscription till December 3, 2016,” the spokesperson said.
He said consumers who have not subscribed services till December 3 will be able to subscribe to New offers as well as tariff plans that are available from Jio.
“Jio will continue offering consumer-friendly plans to enhance Data and voice experience of all consumers,” he added.
