It's been over a month since Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio launched its 4G services along with the 'Welcome Offer' in the country and still it's quite difficult to get your hands on the Jio SIM card.
It only gets worse if you are below 18 years old since 18 years is the legal age for any citizen to be eligible to purchase a SIM card in India. But thankfully, it's not the case with Reliance Jio, you can still get the SIM card by following the below steps.
Generate the Jio Offer Code
Firstly, you will have to generate the Jio offer code by installing the MyJio app like you'd do otherwise.
Visit the nearest Reliance Digital or DX mini store
Once the barcode is generated, pay a visit to the nearest Reliance Digital or DX mini store along with the documents mentioned below.
Provide the ID card issued by your college/school
One of the most important documents you've to carry while visiting the Reliance Digital store is a photocopy of the ID card issued by your current school/college/university.
What other docs will I need if I’m below 18 years of age?
In addition to a valid ID card issued by your institute, you'll have to provide the address and ID proof of your parents (in most cases Aadhaar card will do) just to make sure that you're taking the SIM card under your parent's supervision. Also, carry your own ID card (apart from college ID card) and address proof along with a passport size photo.
Get additional Wi-FI data benefits
Under the Student SIM scheme, Reliance Jio is offering 25% additional Wi-Fi data benefits on every recharge you make. For those who are not in the know, Wi-Fi data is nothing but the amount of internet you can use while you're connected to a public Jio Hotspot.
