Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited (Jio) today announced the launch of its digital services with Jio Welcome Offer which will be effective from 5 September, 2016. As part of the Jio Welcome Offer, users will have access to unlimited LTE data and national voice, video and messaging services along with the full bouquet of Jio applications and content, free of cost up to 31 December 2016. The Company today filed its tariff plans with the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI).

The announcement was made by the Chairman of Reliance Industries Limited, Mukesh D. Ambani, at the Annual General Meeting of RIL today. Ambani emphasised the benefits of digitalisation and said in his speech that Jio is dedicated to realising the Prime Minister’s inspiring vision of Digital India for 1.2 billion Indians.
