Reliance Jio is all set to enroll its customers on its Jio Prime membership plan starting today, which can be availed at Rs 99. The plan is an extension of the company’s ‘Happy New Year’ offer and new as well existing customers can become Jio Prime subscribers before March 31 to enjoy the Prime Jio plan.
Reliance Jio Prime subscription plans are now available for consumers to choose from. Until March 31, both new Reliance Jio subscribers and those enrolled in the Happy New Offer can upgrade to the Jio Prime subscription for an annual fee of Rs. 99. This subscription has a validity until March 31, 2018. Apart from the one-time fee, Jio Prime subscribers will need to buy a Jio Prime plan or pack to avail the benefits, and can now choose from a wide variety of prepaid and postpaid options.
Reliance Jio says you can either head to the MyJio app to subscribe to the Jio Prime service, or use the Jio.com website. You can also choose to visit any Jio store or Jio partner store near you to enrol for the plan.
Reliance Jio notes that if new subscribers buy a Reliance Jio SIM before March 3, Friday, they will enjoy Jio Happy New Year benefits until March 31. If they buy a Jio SIM after March 4, Saturday, they will need to apply for the Rs. 99 Jio Prime subscription right away if they want to enjoy unlimited benefits until March 31, 2017.
To recall, Reliance Jio had last week disclosed just the new Rs. 303 monthly tariff plan when it announced the subscription. The new Jio Prime plans are now listed on the company's website and are divided for Postpaid and Prepaid customers, alongside the regular non-Prime plans. Non-prime plans have the same tariffs, however, do not come with the same benefits.
Along with all of these, you get a wide range of booster packs. The minimum booster pack for postpaid users begin at Rs. 51 for 1GB of 4G data, and Rs. 11 for 100MB 4G data for prepaid users. Jio also provides “unlimited at night”, giving unlimited data to users between 2am and 5am. Students can also avail 25% added data benefits against each of these plans, and postpaid users who opt for e-bills and automatic bill pay with credit/debit cards will also get an added 15% discount.
In case of doubt, users can ask for assistance on this number- 1800-889-9999 if you are not using a Jio number. If you are calling via a Jio number then users can dial 198 or 199.
