Reliance Jio chief Mukesh Ambani had announced the extension of the existing Welcome Offer to March 31, 2017, calling it "Happy New Year" offer. The newly introduced offer is available for both the new as well as the existing Jio customers.
Stated earlier, Reliance Jio SIM cards purchased within December 3, will come with Welcome Offer, after which any SIM cards bought starting from December 4 will come up with the newly introduced Happy New Offer.
The Happy New Year offer is quite different from that of the Reliance Jio Welcome Offer. Let's check out the difference of the new offer with the existing one and the limitations.
Most Reliance Jio Subscribers Use Up to 1GB Data/Day: Mukesh Ambani
In the announcement by Ambani on December 1, it was said that the most Reliance Jio customers use up to 1GB data every day, and hardly a few cross the limit of 1GB.
Hence, the company chief has taken this factor into consideration while designing the new Happy New Year offer.
Happy New Offer Has 1GB Limit Per Day
The newly introduced Jio Happy New Year offer is not similar to that of the existing Welcome Offer. Not to forget that the existing offer provides up to 4GB of data, every day, after which the internet speed is expected to drop down.
Whereas, considering the new offer, Ambani states that the users, be it new or existing can use only 1GB of data per day.

What Happens After Users Cross 1GB FUP?
This is the most asked question after the announcement. So, according to the Happy New Year offer, after a user crosses the FUP of 1GB/day, they will be charged for an uninterrupted service.
Hence, to enjoy the full speed internet after the FUP, Reliance Jio has introduced two new vouchers.
What Are these New Vouchers?
As stated in the Reliance Jio official website, during the tenure of Happy New Offer, if the users exceed their usage of 1GB FUP/day, they will have to avail one of the two new vouchers to enjoy the high 4G speed, available for both prepaid and postpaid customers.
The two vouchers include Rs. 51 that offers 1GB for a day, whereas the second one is of Rs. 301 offering 6GB for 28 days. Introducing these services, the new entrant proved that Reliance Jio is no more offering unlimited and free services, and is charging their customers.
What if Users Don't Avail the Vouchers After Crossing the 1GB Data Limit?
As said by Mukesh Ambani that the Happy New Year offer will come with a data limit of 1GB for the users. However, after crossing the data cap, the internet speed will be dropped down to 128 Kbps, which in only sufficient only for sending or receiving WhatsApp messages.
Hence, to avail the continued high-speed internet, getting the vouchers id mandatory.
