In a press release dated 6th April 2017, JIO has announced that it is withdrawing its “JIO SUMMER SURPRISE OFFER” starting today. This is a totally unexpected and surprising move from JIO. The offer was introduced on 31st March 2017.
Under the JIO SUMMER SURPRISE Offer, all JIO PRIME members who made a minimum recharge of Rs 303 (Rs.303 is the recharge amount for 1 month), got 3 months of complementary services, which meant that the recharge amount will be accounted for only from the 4th month onwards.
However, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India(TRAI) has advised JIO to withdraw the 3 month complementary benefits of the JIO SUMMER SURPRISE Offer.
“Jio accepts this decision. Jio is in the process of fully complying with the regulator’s advice, and will be withdrawing the 3 months complimentary benefits of JIO SUMMER SURPRISE as soon as operationally feasible, over the next few days.” , JIO was quoted as saying.
However, all the JIO PRIME Members who have subscribed to the JIO SUMMER SURPRISE Offer prior to this announcement will continue to get the 3 months of complementary service as promised earlier.
