Reliance Jio is limiting the number of minutes in voice calls to 300 minutes per day for some users, according to reports. Jio says the reason for this limit is to avoid potential misuse.
Users would have noticed that Reliance Jio recharge vouchers come with the promise of unlimited voice calls be it local or STD. However, the limit stands at 300 minutes per day for voice calls but only in case of misuse, and this does not include international calls for which users have to purchase separate vouchers. This 300 minutes per day has been part of the Jio terms and conditions for some time now.
In fact in Jio’s terms and conditions for its new recharge plans, the company adds, “This Plan is intended only for personal use of included services. RJIL reserves the right to discontinue the free Voice benefits offered as part of this Plan in case of misuse/fraudulent use/unauthorised telemarketing and commercial use.” So if someone starts using their personal Jio number for telemarketing or fraudulent calls, then the voice call usage can capped (300 minutes per day). Otherwise the unlimited voice calling holds.
The cap (300 minutes per day) is not applicable to all users, but only those found “misusing” the free voice service.
