Reliance Jio has come up with a 100% cashback offer on the occasion of Diwali. As part of the Jio Diwali offer, users with every recharge of Rs 399 will receive 100% cashback. The company has planned a tariff revision from October 19, so users recharging in the festive period between October 12 and October 18 will enjoy the current tariff benefits. The 100% cashback of Rs 400 that the customers will receive will be in the form of vouchers of Rs 50 denomination. The vouchers can then be redeemed one at a time against future Jio recharges of Rs 309 and above plans and against Rs 91 and above data add-ons.
Weeks after Trai effected a drastic cut in interconnect usage charge (IUC), the Reliance Jio offer is likely to set off a new tariff war in the Indian telecom sector.

Jio users will have to head on to MyJio app, www.Jio.com website, Jio Store outlets, Reliance Digital large-format stores, if they wish to get their recharge done online. While, for offline recharge they can head on to Jio’s partnered offline retail stores and online platforms like — JioMoney, Paytm, Amazon Pay, and MobiKwik.
