Reliance Jio has today announced that customers who took Prime subscription at Rs. 99/year will be able to avail its benefits for another year, free of cost. Regardless of the date of purchase, all Jio Prime subscriptions would expire tomorrow, March 31. The existing customers just need to go through an opt-in process for free subscription. Those joining the network after April 1 will have to pay Rs. 99.
