India’s largest telecom operator Reliance Jio has introduced a new scheme, where users have to pay security deposits on postpaid plans and OTT subscriptions. According to the new terms and conditions issued by Reliance Jio, the minimum period of the highly-priced plan of Rs. 1,499 is for six months.
This means that if any user wants to exit from this plan, then they have to pay some amount, including additional taxes. Besides, the company is offering a subscription of OTT apps with this plan. It also includes 300GB data, unlimited calling, and messages with this pack.
These apps include Amazon Prime, Disney+ Hotstar, Netflix, Jio apps, (JioNews, and JioTV), and many more. Notably, the company has not announced anything if anyone wants to opt-out from the OTT subscription. Apart from these announcements, the company highlighted that users have to spend a security deposit on its postpaid plans. Additionally, users will get extra data in the USA and UAE. This includes unlimited calling, roaming, and free messages.
