Reliance Jio Prime programme, which was announced by the company last year, will come to an end on March 31 2018.

Reliance Jio Prime programme, which was announced by the company last year, will come to an end on March 31 2018.

Jio has not yet made official whether it will continue the Prime membership programme or roll out an alternative post the validity period.

We can expect the company to extend Prime benefits for another year at a slightly increased price than Rs 99, but that is just a speculation at this point.

Reliance Jio Prime membership gives extra data benefits to users, when compared to non-Prime members. Jio prepaid and postpaid users can choose to become a Prime member by paying Rs 99.

However, all of the company’s data plans are listed for Prime members, which makes it mandatory to avail the membership. All Jio users get access to free voice calls as well as SMS and Jio’s suite of apps like MyJio, Jio Money, Jio Cinema, and more.

For those who are not a Jio Prime member, the membership costs Rs 99, in addition to the data pack that the user is buying.

This is a one-time fee to avail Prime membership and will remain valid till tomorrow.

It is important to note that users who have done consecutive recharges in advance will continue to get benefits listed under the existing recharge vouchers.
