Last year, Reliance introduced its Jio Prime membership that was admired by the Indian users soon after its launch. The Jio Prime membership unlocks the access to services and apps such as JioTV, JioMagazine, JioMusic, and JioCinema to name a few. To get a membership, the Reliance Jio user would have to pay a subscription fee of Rs 99. The membership was valid until March 31, 2018; however, the company has waived-off the subscription charges to the existing Jio Prime users.
Only the existing Reliance Jio users who have active Prime membership are eligible for free renewal. It is worth mentioning that the customers who have not subscribed to Prime services or the customers who have joined Jio network after April 1, 2018, will have to pay the subscription fee of Rs 99 to activate the Jio Prime services. Reliance Jio services work only with the 4G VoLTE smartphones and JioFi router users.
