Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) Chairman Mukesh Ambani took everyone by surprise when he announced the launch of Jio phone. Jio has 125 million users since its launch in September last year, as per a report in PTI. The offer included lifelong free voice calls bundled with 4G data streaming at an effective price of zero. RIL chief Mukesh Ambani made the big announcement at the company’s 40th shareholder meeting.
Out of the 78 crore phones in India, Mukesh Ambani had said that 50 crore are feature phones that cannot be used for Internet or data usage. According to Ambani, Jio phone would give the affordable device to these 50 crore users and end these users’ digital exclusion in India.
