    Demonetization is a major reason

    The recent move of the Indian government to ban the old currency notes such as Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000, which is the cash demonetisation is one of the major reasons for the drop in the Jio subscriptions. We say this as the average footfall in the Reliance Digital and Xpress Mini stores to buy the SIM card has reduced significantly.

    People prefer exchanging their old currency

    Though there is no direct link between the sale of Jio SIM cards and demonetisation, it is important for the average people to stand in queues in banks to exchange or deposit their old currency that is no more valid or outside ATMs to draw money from their account.

    There are speculations that the Reliance Jio will end the current Welcome Offer on December 3, 2016 as it will complete 90 days. It is also expected to introduce another such offer after this period that will be applicable for another 90 days.

    Jio is mostly the second SIM

    Recently, it was reported that the Reliance Jio SIM is used as the second SIM card and the subscribers are still making use of SIM cards from other networks such as Airtel, Vodafone or Idea as their primary ones. Eventually, they are using the Jio SIM only to get the benefits that it comes bundled with. It makes it clear that the further growth of Reliance Jio depends only on the benefits that it will provide.
