New JioPhone Offers
In the statement, the telco mentions the following offers offers.
First, to the users who have not recharged during the pandemic, Reliance Jio, with with Reliance Foundation, will provide 300 free minutes of outgoing calls per month. Jio said that this will go on for the entire period of the pandemic. Reliance Jio plans to keep people connected during the entirety of the second wave of COVID-19.
