Moreover, you get unlimited and free night data, JioNet data, and free calls.

The Jio SIM bundles unlimited voice calls to any number - local or STD for free. Also, there are no roaming charges involved in the plans. Moreover, the access to the Reliance Jio app suite is free until December 2017.

What's exciting?

Reliance Jio has its focus on the students. The service is giving away 25 percent of additional data usage for the students. To avail this offer, you need to take your valid Student ID while you visit the Reliance Digital store to get a SIM card.

What's actually the catch?

There are some terms and conditions that you need to know before you get excited about the Reliance Jio SIM card. Here are a few things that you need to keep in mind. The service is not going to offer you unlimited 4G data for free during the Welcome Offer. You can use just 4 GB of 4G data per day and the speed will go down after exceeding the limit.

Its not 12 but 13 months

Confused? Well, Reliance Jio plans have a validity of 28 days and not 31 days. Eventually, you will have to buy 13 packs in a year and not just 12. This is something that many other service providers too do.
