Reliance Jio has introduced a special Rs 102 prepaid plan in Jammu &Kashmir for the Amarnath Yatra, the highly revered pilgrimage undertaken by hundreds and thousands of devotees from Gujarat during summer, every year.
Prepaid users from other parts of the country cannot use their prepaid connection on roaming in Jammu and Kashmir due to government restrictions. Visitors into the state usually opt for a new prepaid sim for their short visits – these numbers are generally retained temporarily only during their visits.
In Gujarat there are about 6.86 crore mobile users and of the total, it is estimated that about 95% are prepaid users. Especially for them, Jio has come up with a new plan valid only in Jammu and Kashmir. The plan can be availed at various Jio retailers in J&K and is available for the entire duration of Amarnath Yatra.
For this, user will have to get a new connection. The plan offers unlimited local and national voice calls, 100 SMSes/day, unlimited data (0.5GB/Day High Speed Data, thereafter unlimited at 64Kbps) and validity – 7 Days.
Jio App Subscription will not be available on this plan as the Jio Prime Membership is not applicable with this plan. The plan is designed to address the needs of pilgrims from other parts of the country who are on prepaid plans. J&K has restrictions on the roaming facilities of prepaid subscribers from the rest of the country and hence the pilgrims are faced with connectivity challenge during their yatra.
Now, pilgrims can take a new local J&K prepaid connection from Jio and opt for Jio’s this value for money 7-day unlimited prepaid plan with their new local J&K number and enjoy seamless connectivity during their pilgrimage.
