Billionaire Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries' welcome offer of free voice calls and data on its recently-launched Jio mobile phone services will be available till December 31 only for those users who will buy subscription by December 3.
India's richest man had stormed his way into the telecom sector last month announcing a Jio Welcome Offer beginning September 4.
The sector regulator Trai in an order said as per regulations the free services by Jio will be limited to 90 days, which ends on December 3.
"The revised offer of free services by Reliance Jio has been limited to 90 days i.e. December 3, 2016 and therefore is consistent with the guidelines on promotional offers," Trai said in an order.
When contacted, a Jio spokesperson said the Jio Welcome Offer or JWO "benefits of free unlimited Voice and data will be available to all subscribers up to December 31, 2016."
But, the "JWO will be available to new consumers for subscription till December 3, 2016," the spokesperson said.
He said consumers who have not subscribed for services till December 3 will be able to subscribe to new offers as well as tariff plans that are available from Jio.
"Jio will continue offering consumer friendly plans to enhance Data and voice experience of all consumers," he added.
