In a recent press release, Jio has announced that the company is withdrawing their latest offering: Jio Summer Surprise Offer. Jio Summer Surprise Offer was announced on March 31 and offers users an additional 3 months of free usage. But, as per the new TRAI ruling, users cannot apply for this free offering anymore.
Existing users who had paid Rs 303 earlier will continue to retain the 3 months free offering. New users cannot apply for the Rs 303 pack and get the Jio summer surprise offer anymore.
There is no clear information as on why this Jio ruling is in place, but it looks like Jio is respecting the advice from the regulatory and will be dropping this free offering in the coming days.
Users who try to apply for the Jio summer surprise offer now will no longer be eligible though. It’s being dropped on an immediate basis.
