Are calls really free from Reliance Jio? Data charges Applicable!!

Reliance Jio has set a new benchmark in Indian Telecom Industry.  Everyone was expecting relatively cheaper calls and Data but Jio went way forward and made calls free.

They were able to do so because Jio is all about Data. It’s a data network and calls made via them transmits on Data bandwidth.  So when one makes or receives a call via Jio, he is using his data.

But now comes a twist. Calls are free on Reliance but data is not. So will the Data used by calls be charged from you Data pack?

No, Jio recently made it all clear that they will not charge Data consumed by calls from your Data pack. Not just the confirmation, the company added this to their website. Here is a snap of the same:-

Sorry for the poor Quality. 

So that is now something really exciting. You will not pay for calls at all. Moreover, Reliance is already giving 4 GB 4G data daily as a welcome offer to all the new and old customers and will keep this on until the end of this year.

But before you jump off your place run to buy a Jio SIM card read this.  There is a huge demand of Jio.  Actually because of its Data offering and Jio is not able to fulfill this demand. Supply of SIM cards is low and that is resulting into long waiting. You might have to wait days for that and even stand in queues for hours.  So before visiting Jio center or Digital xpress, keep your documents ready and also pack your things to eat during those long queues.
