Under the Jio Prime plan, Jio members can avail another year of its 4G services at a one-time payment of Rs 99 to be made this March. This means, the Jio Prime members can continue to enjoy the Jio 4G data benefit till March 31, 2018 at Rs 99. Additionally, Jio will charge Rs 303 per month, effectively at Rs 10 per day for another full year. The plan comes into effect on April 1, 2017, the day the existing Jio Happy New Year Offer expires. Existing users can enroll via MyJio app or log into company’s website as well as via Jio offline stores to enroll into Jio Prime membership plan.

Those who do not opt for the Jio Prime subscription plan will be ported to the prepaid or postpaid Reliance Jio tariff plans, which the company had announced in September 2016 while launching its services. Ambani stressed that despite the free data plans not being valid starting April 1, all voice calls on the network will remain free indefinitely - with no roaming charges.

How to Add and Delete Users on Ubuntu 14.04 Server


Once a new server is created, you will be only given the root privilege. If you want other users to access the same sever, you need to add users accordingly. After adding the users you can give super user privileges to the new user too. In this post, I will show you how to add, delete users and assign sudo privileges to the users.

1. How to Add User

If you are signed in as a root user

adduser username

If you are not signed in as a root user but have sudo privilege, you can enter

sudo adduser username

After you enter the command, you will be asked some questions

enter password

re-enter password

Once you have entered the password, you will be asked to enter user details. This is optional and can be skipped by hitting ENTER button. At the end, you will be asked to confirm by pressing 'Y'.

You have successfully created a new user. Now you can login using the username and password.

2. How to Grant Sudo Privileges to the New User

If you want to the new user to have sudo privilege, then you need to add the user to the sudo file

If you are signed in as a root user

visudo

If you are not signed in as a root user but have sudo privilege, you can enter

sudo visudo

Search for the line that looks like

root    ALL=(ALL: byALL) ALL

Here, all you need to do is just below this line copy and paste the same and replace 'root with the 'username' of the new user

root    ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
username    ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

Now, save and close the file.

The new user has sudo access and can execute commands.

3. How to Delete User

In some cases, you need to delete the users once their work is done. You can do the same this way

If you are signed in as a root user

deluser username

If you are not signed in as a root user but have sudo privilege, you can enter

sudo deluser username

Above command will delete the user from your machine.

If you want to delete the user's home directory, enter the command

If you are signed in as a root user

deluser --remove-home username

If you are not signed in as a root user but have sudo privilege, you can enter

sudo deluser --remove-home username

If you have given sudo privilege to the deleted user, then don't forget to remove the previously added line in the visudo file

root    ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
username    ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL  #Delete this line

Congratulations, you have successfully added, deleted and assigned sudo access to the new user.
