Reliance Jio after giving unlimited call offers to its users will now limit the availability of unlimited calls as company will now be offering just 300 minutes also maintains a limit on how long a voice call between two people can last.
According to reports, Reliance Jio is limiting the number of minutes in voice calls to 300 minutes per day and the reason behind this is to avoid potential misuse. These 300 minutes per day has been part of the Jio terms and conditions for some time now.
Users of Jio phone might have seen that Reliance Jio recharge vouchers come with the promise of unlimited voice calls be it local or STD. However, the limit stands at 300 minutes per day for voice calls, and this does not include international calls for which users have to purchase separate vouchers.
In fact in Jio’s terms and conditions for its recharge plans, the company adds, “This Plan is intended only for personal use of included services. RJIL reserves the right to discontinue the free Voice benefits offered as part of this Plan in case of misuse/ fraudulent use/ unauthorised telemarketing and commercial use.”
Reliance Jio also caps the number of SMS at 100 free SMS per day. This is in keeping with TRAI Regulations, which has put the daily limit to avoid misuse of unlimited text messages. In Jio’s terms and conditions page, it states, “Commercial usage for this plan is defined as outgoing voice usage of 300 minutes per day or 1200 minutes for 7 days or 3,000 minutes per month (28 days), whichever is earlier.”
