Yesterday, after TRAI issued an order to stop the free service of Jio the offer has been withdrawn by Reliance Jio. Jio Summer Surprise had offered their Prime user 3 months of free additional services provided the user has recharged their number with Rs. 303 or more. Now, as the Summer Surprise has been withdrawn it is still not too late to avail benefits of Jio 'Summer Surprise' offer as Reliance Jio is yet to roll it back - Jio said the process of rolling it back may take a couple of days.


Here is what Jio's Summer Surprise offered its customers:-

Every Jio Prime member who makes a recharge using Jio’s Rs. 303 plan (or any of Jio’s higher value plans) will get an additional three months of complimentary service. This means that if you buy Jio Prime membership and a recharge of Rs. 303 or higher value by April 15, you will get to use Jio services for free until June, and the paid plans will only start in July. If you’ve already subscribed to Jio Prime plan and bought a recharge, you will still get the Summer Surprise without any further action. The company added that the Jio Summer Surprise is going to be just the first of “many” surprises for Prime members.

When is Jio ‘Summer Surprise’ offer last date?

With the new order issued by TRAI, Jio 'Summer Surprise' now stands cancelled. Reliance Jio has agreed to roll it back but has not announced a concrete Jio ‘Summer Surprise’ offer last date yet. In a statement, the telecom operator said the promotional scheme will be withdrawn “as soon as operationally feasible.”

Can I still get Jio ‘Summer Surprise’ offer benefits?

Yes. Jio 'Summer Surprise' offer is available via the Jio official website and MyJio app. If you are not a Prime member yet, then you need to enrol for the subscription plan. When you open the page for Jio Prime subscriptions, you will not find at present the option to do the Rs. 99 recharge, as was the case earlier. Instead, you will be presented with a list of plans you can buy to avail Jio 'Summer Surprise' benefits. Just tick the box next to the plan you want, and hit the Buy button. The next page will show you that the Rs. 99 Jio Prime subscription fee has already been added to your checkout cart. Simply proceed to make the payment and enjoy 3 months of free services.

If I already have Jio Prime, do I still get Jio 'Summer Surprise' benefits?

If you are a Jio Prime member and have already purchased a recharge of Rs. 303 or higher value, then you will get Jio 'Summer Surprise' benefits for three months. If you are a Jio Prime user but are yet to purchase a recharge of Rs. 303 or more, then you need to buy the recharge pack as soon as possible to continue free services till July.

What happens if I don’t get Jio 'Summer Surprise' offer?

If you choose not to avail the Jio summer offer, you will soon have to start paying for all services except calls. On March 31 – the original last day for Jio Prime enrollment – the operator had provided a grace period of 15 days to customers who had not signed up yet; in this grace period, the free services were to continue. But with the TRAI order to cancel Jio 'Summer Surprise' offer, it is not clear if this grace period has also been withdrawn.  So if the grace period is rolled back sometime soon, you will have to start paying for services as a non-Prime user. 

When is Jio Prime last date?

The last date for Jio Prime subscriptions will still continue to be April 15 as the TRAI order does not affect it.

So, if you are really looking forward to using Jio then its advice to take the prime membership and recharge for Rs. 303 or more and avail the free services.


Reliance Jio 'Summer Surprise' Offer Withdrawn After TRAI Order, Jio Prime Last Date Still April 15


Reliance Jio announced that it is going to withdraw its Jio Summer Surprise offer after sector regulator TRAI issued an order asking Reliance Jio to end its complimentary services. Jio Summer Surprise offered 3-month complimentary benefits of Jio services and free data on recharge of Rs. 303 or more. This offer was announced by the Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries last week.

All customers who have subscribed to the aforementioned offer prior to its discontinuation will remain eligible for the offer. Trai had previously found nothing wrong with its extended promotional offers of free data and voice that had helped Jio clock 100 million customers.

The only ones impacted will be the Jio users who had not signed up for Jio Prime and purchased the requisite recharges till now. They will have to pay for all Jio services except calls. Though the services were to become paid starting April 1, the company had provided users a grace period till April 15 to enrol for Jio Prime. In this grace period, users could continue to use all Jio services for free (without Prime subscription), but with the new TRAI order, it is not clear whether this grace period ends too.

Reliance Jio has started sending push notifications for the customers that says that Jio Summer Surprise offer will be withdrawn in the next few days. It also asks customers to recharge with Rs. 303 or more to avail the offer before it’s discontinued.

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.
