I share everything I learned in life on this blog. From personal finance to spirituality and everything in between. 

During the Reliance Jio sim launch in India, Mukesh Ambani had also introduced a new welcome offer in which all the Jio Users get free 4 G data (Speed limit up to 4 GB per day), Free calls and SMS up to 31st December, 2016. What if the offer is expanded for few more days?  That’s right, a report suggested that the offer is now extended beyond the December 31 deadline. The offer might be extended until March 2017. The reason is that Jio management would like to test the quality of the service and it would be unfair to charge the customers before that.

Also a lot of issues are going between Reliance Jio and other telecom operators like Airtel, Vodafone etc. Reliance Jio has blamed the other operators for the lack of interconnect points due to which a large number of calls were being dropped off. Eventually, the problem has been resolved by getting the support from TRAI.

Here are the four reasons why the offer has been extended:

  1.  To increase the Jio to Jio calls
    Exactly, with the increased competition and less support from other  telecom providers, Reliance is facing a lot of trouble in making calls from Jio number to another service provider. hence, by extending the offer, the user base can be increased and a lot more Jio to Jio callers will come in place.
  2. Jio wants to correct its mistake
    Even since the Reliance Jio started, users started experiencing calling issues. As mentioned above, it is due to the competitors and Jio might want to make it possible for its users to enjoy the free and unlimited voice calls facility by extending its offer for another 90 days.
  3. Reliance Jio is aiming to increase the user base
    To another 100 million It is unbelievable that around 16 million people have subscribed with Reliance Jio in the past one month of operation. Anything can happen in next few months.
  4. There is no TRAI conflict.
    Reliance Jio faced issues with other service providers where as it got a lot of support from TRAI. Hence, the offer can be extended for few more months with the complete support.
