It is also the date when Reliance Jio had kept as a deadline for its Summer Surprise offer, but they have now extended it with Dhan Dhana Dhan offer. Through the Summer Surprise offer, Jio was offering its customers free services for 84 days, which included 1 GB data per day upon payment of Rs 303 by April 15. However, on April 6, the company announced that since Trai has advised it to stop the offer, it has decided to do so but those who had come on board would continue to get the free services.
Meanwhile, Bharti Airtel on April 13, dragged Reliance Jio to the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) alleging that the company had flouted the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (Trai) advise by not revoking its Summer Surprise offer announced on March 31.
