Reliance Jio’s free ‘Happy New Year’ is expiring on 31st of March. So, there will no longer be free voice calls, SMS & 4G data. However, that’s not the end to the awesomeness of Jio. While Jio services will be chargeable from the 1st of April, Jio is introducing the ‘Jio Prime Membership’. Prime membership will allow the subscriber to continue to avail very attractive data and voice plans for 1 more year i.e. till 31st March 2018.

Features, Price & Plans of Reliance Jio Prime Membership

Reliance Jio Prime Membership is priced at ₹99 for 1 year. As a subscriber to Jio Prime, you get to avail attractive offers which normal users will not be able to enjoy. However, do note that Prime is just a membership to avail better tariff plans. Joining the membership alone does not bring you any advantages. After subscribing, you need to also subscribe to one of the monthly plans exclusive to the Jio prime membership. Following benefits are common in all plans under Jio Prime Membership:

  • Free Unlimited Calls to Any Network in India
  • 100 SMS Free (per day) to Any Network in India

  • Free Access to other Jio services – Jio Music, Jio Cinema, Jio Mags; etc
  • Exclusive special offers in the future

Yes, that’s right. Calling and texting to any network is going to stay free. No limits, no FUP, nothing. You can literally keep the call connected 24 x 7 and it will still be free.

You can subscribe to Prime membership starting from 1st of March 2017 till 31st of March. No new applications will be accepted after 31st March. Prime Membership is only available to those subscribers who are already using Jio SIM card. So, you should be a Reliance Jio user before 31st March 2017 in order to join the Jio Prime membership.
