After withdrawing the “Summer Surprise” offer, Reliance Jio has come up with yet another plan to lure in customers and this time, it’s intuitively called “Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan”. The new offer is merely a rebrand of the previous one with the exception of duration – while “Summer Surprise” provided complimentary access for 90 days, “Dhan Dhana Dhan” will be running for 84 days i.e. 28 days in a billing cycle for 3 months. There are some minor changes in the prices as well.
Just like before, customers who participate in their Prime services by paying a sum of INR 99 and recharge prior to 15th April using Jio’s Rs 309 or Rs 509 plan (currently only two are available ), will get unlimited services for 3 months. This essentially means you will be able to use all the available Jio services for free including 1/2GB of 4G data every day, unlimited calls, SMS, entertainment apps such as JioCinema, Music, Magazine, TV, and more. During this period, your balance will be in fact deducted unlike the “Summer Surprise” where the first three months were actually deemed free.
This is, though exclusively for prime users who aren’t already benefiting from the Summer Surprise plan. In case you do try to recharge under the “Dhan Dhana Dhan” offer, the balance will begin deducting from August once the Summer Surprise is completely concluded.
For the uninitiated, Reliance Jio’s highly controversial Summer Surprise offer was taken down a couple of days as it didn’t comply with a few terms as stated by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). However, the new “Dhan Dhana Dhan” itself doesn’t bring any significant alterations to the previous package which is quite bewildering. It could be perhaps because the telco was advertising the first three months as “free”, but this time there’s no mention of that. It will be interesting to see how its fellow competitors react here as they’ve already been consistently filing complaints against the soaring telco.
