Reliance Jio launches emergency data loan packs of 1GB: How to avail
Manjil Das, INN/Chennai
Reliance Jio, India’s largest telecom operator, is a well-known brand that provides clients with low-cost, low-cost options. Jio has a lot to offer its consumers, including free access to Hotstar and other video streaming services.
Jio, owned by Mukesh Ambani, has introduced a new ’emergency data loan plan’ that helps subscribers who have used up their high-speed data allocation and are unable to recharge right away. Users can now replenish their data pack and pay for it later using this new option. The new service enables consumers to take advantage of a high-speed data plan without having to worry about paying for it right now.
Prepaid users may now borrow up to five 1GB emergency data packs from Jio via the company’s Emergency Data Loan service, which costs Rs 11 per pack. The maximum loan amount is Rs 55, or 5 packs, and consumers will get constant internet access. On all Jio prepaid cell phones, this service is available.
The facility can be accessible via the My Jio app on a phone, and while there, they must select the menu option. Users would see the mobile option in the menu, which is where the Emergency Data Loan is required. Select Proceed from the Emergency Data Loan banner, then Get Emergency Data from the drop-down menu. After that, users must click the Activate Now button to activate the pack. The loan payment can also be done through the My Jio app.
The move by Jio is significant because an active internet connection was the lifeline of many aspects of life, including school, during the coronavirus pandemic, and because Jio’s launch made it possible for many low-income families to access internet services, the data loan facility is likely to be useful. The approach has the potential to snowball into a multi-player offering that would mobilise a data credit system that would benefit tens of thousands of Indian customers.
