RIL Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh D Ambani on Thursday announced that the Reliance Jio welcome offer has now been extended till March 31, 2017. The offer has now been renamed the Jio Happy New Year Offer. TRAI had earlier asked Jio to end the Welcome Offer by December 3, and not to give the free services to new users after that date.

Addressing employees and customers, Ambani said in under three months Reliance Jio has become fastest growing technology company in the world, surpassing even Facebook. “Since its birth Jio has grown faster that Facebook, Whatsapp and Skype,” Ambani said, thanking Indians.

Ambani cited eKYC which has helped sign up six lakh customers every single day over the past six months ending the long queues and waiting periods. Jio now activates SIMs in under five minutes. Ambani called this the best experience anywhere in the world, adding that there were two lakh digitally enabled outlets in India now and said the number will double soon.

Addressing customers and employees through a live stream, Ambani said a Jio user is using 25 times more data than the average Indian broadband users. He, however, expressed his displeasure at existing service providers not helping Jio reduce call drops.

Announcing his support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation efforts, Ambani announced that the JioMoney app would be available for download to everyone from December 5. He said the app will be able to make transactions across the country and over different kinds of businesses.

Reliance Jio’s Happy New Year Offer will apply to new and existing customers who will be automatically upgraded to the new scheme.

                          Ambani said demonetisation will strengthen india. Ambani should first surrender his black money and swiss bank details to really strengthen india.

                                      Till last month, jio had 10 million subscribers. Now they claim 50 million subscribers? How come 40 million got added after demonetisation? This is called converting black into white

                                        What does ambani have to loose? He is turning black money to white, including those of bjp leaders money.
