Jio has announced new schemes and free plans for its JioPhone users to help people stay connected during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The company will provide 300 minutes of free outgoing calls per month to JioPhone users who have not managed to recharge during the pandemic. JioPhone users who have recharged will get a recharge plan of the same value for free.
“In these unprecedented times of the Covid pandemic, we at Jio want to ensure that staying connected remains accessible and affordable for all customers, especially the less-privileged sections of our society,” the company said.
Jio has partnered with Reliance foundation to give JioPhone users the new facility during the ongoing pandemic. Users will be able to use 10 minutes per day from the quota.
JioPhone users who recharge with a new plan now will get an additional recharge of the same plan for free. This means If a user recharges his phone with a Rs 75 recharge, he will get an additional recharge worth Rs 75 for free.
Currently Jio has five plans for JioPhone users. The plans start at Rs 75 and go up to Rs 749. The Rs 75 plan offers 100MB data per day along with 50 SMS and a total of 3GB data. The plan is valid for 28 days. The Rs 125 plan 500 MB data per day or 0.5GB and has a total of 14GB data for a period of 28 days. This plan has 300 SMS free.
