Reliance Jio today announced a 'special one time' Diwali offer.

As per a press release issued by the company, Jio is making the JioPhone available for a special price of only Rs 699 as against the current price of Rs. 1500.

"This price is far lower than many of the current 2G feature phones in the market. As such, the final barrier that has prevented feature phone users from upgrading to 4G services is now eliminated," the company said in the release.

The company further added that buyers will get benefits of Rs 700 as well under the Diwali 2019 offer. "For first 7 recharges that the customer does, Jio will additionally add Rs 99 worth of data."

The release quoted Mukesh D. Ambani, Chairman & Managing Director of Reliance Industries Ltd. saying: “Jio will ensure that no Indian is deprived of affordable Internet and the fruits of the Digital Revolution. By offering the ‘JioPhone Diwali Gift’, we are making an investment of Rs 1,500 towards bringing every new person from the Bottom of the Economic Pyramid into the Internet Economy. This also shows our commitment to the success of our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s visionary DIGITAL INDIA MISSION.”

No exchange of old phone required to avail the offer, said the telco.

The offer is valid from this Dussehra to Diwali, Jio further added.
