New Delhi: Following the order from the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India, Reliance Jio has decided to withdraw its Jio Summer Surprise offer “as soon as operationally feasible”.
However, the company has said that the users who had subscribed to the summer offer prior to its termination will continue to avail the benefits under the plan.
On March 31, Jio had announced that it would extend the deadline for its Prime membership till April 15. Under the Jio Summer Surprise offer, the Prime members who make their first recharge payment of Rs 303 plans will get three months’ complimentary services in addition to the benefits that come with the plan. The paid tariff plan will be applied only in July, after the expiry of the complimentary services.
Jio Prime was introduced on February 21. In a statement, the company had mentioned that in February that Jio’s subscriber base had hit 10 crore since its launch in September 2016. As per sources, in just one month, over 7.2 crore Jio customers have signed up for Jio Prime.
