Reliance Jio started its service as a Preview Offer for smartphones of select brands. Now, it has become a rage among the users and it has the highest data traffic in the country (with the slowest 4G speed).
Later, Reliance Jio users were migrated from Preview Offer to Welcome Offer that has a few restrictions and limitations imposed on the usage. Now, there are speculations that this offer will be extended until March 2017, but there's no official information regarding the same.

Know about PUK Code
The PUK Code is a type of security that is needed to avoid unauthorized usage of your SIM card. It is a code with eight numeric digits and it is provided by Reliance Jio.
You can change the PIN code
The code comes with a 4-digit PIN code that is not related to the mobile security, but it adds a layer of security to prevent your SIM card from any unauthorized use. It can be changed as well. By default, the service provider will have a PIN code assigned and you can modify it. You will be asked to key in the code while switching the mobile.
Its for security purposes
Its possible to prevent the unauthorized usage of your SIM card with the use of the PIN code. That's because, if someone enters a wrong PIN for three times, it will ask the PUK Code and if this is typed wrong for over 10 times, the SIM card will be blocked forever. If your Jio SIM gets blocked, the option left is to replace the SIM card.
