Jio announces Rs 102 prepaid plan for Amarnath Yatris

Jio on Friday announced a special Rs 102 prepaid plan in J&K for the Amarnath Yatris.

The pilgrimage, which commenced on July 1, is undertaken by hundreds of thousands of devotees every year. Jio in a statement said the plan brings unlimited voice and data benefits to users including: unlimited voice calls (local and national), unlimited SMS (100/day), unlimited data (0.5GB/Day High Speed Data, thereafter unlimited at 64Kbps) with seven days validity.

“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,” read the statement.

The plan can be availed at select location in J&K, enroute Amarnath yatra; the plan is available only for the duration of Amarnath Yatra.
