Reliance Jio 'Summer Surprise' Offer Withdrawn After TRAI Order, Jio Prime Last Date Still April 15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Reliance Jio has started sending push notifications for the customers that says that Jio Summer Surprise offer will be withdrawn in the next few days.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.
