Jio brought about a paradigm shift in the India telecom industry last year when it started operations by offering free 4G data across the country. Even though the data eventually became chargeable, Jio offered it at inexpensive tariffs that were low enough to keep the users on the network. But the ultra-low cost data aside, Jio has also had several partnerships with smartphone brands themselves that provide customers with additional data on minimum recharges of Rs. 309 or more. Whether it is Samsung, Xiaomi, Micromax, Oppo, Vivo, or in fact any relatively well-known player in the Indian market, chances are that Jio has a tie-up with it for complementary data.
To redeem the additional data, subscribers need to open the MyJio app and tap on the Redeem icon in the My Vouchers section. Then, simply purchase a recharge of the required minimum value, and the extra data will be credited to your account. The official website of the operator says it can take up to 48 hours for the additional 4G data to reflect in the MyJio data balance, and that if the offer is not availed within the expiry date, the complementary data will be forfeited. So, take a look below at the companies Jio has partnered with, the eligible devices, the expiry date, and the minimum recharge value to avail the extra data.
