From last couple of days, one of the most trending news was “What will happen to Jio Prime”? Will it be discontinued? Or users have to recharge Rs. 99 again to enjoy another year of Prime membership.
Well we have a confirmed news now. Famous telecom analyst Sanjay Bafna just tweeted on his official Twitter handle “All Reliance
#Jio PRIME members who have subscribed to the exclusive membership benefits till 31st March 2018 will get another year of complimentary PRIME benefits at NO additional fee/ Charges.” That means you DO NOT need to pay Rs. 99 again for availing Jio Prime membership.
Here is the tweet:

If you do not know who is Sanjay Bafna, well he is a well known telecom analyst and his news regarding Jio plans were accurate till date.
So in easy language, if you are an existing Jio Prime member then you do not need to pay for the membership again. Jio will extend the validity of your Jio Prime membership for another year, and you can enjoy all the premium Jio Apps uninterruptedly. But if you are new customer and take Jio connection on or after 1st April, 2018 then you need to recharge Jio Prime for Rs. 99 and the validity will be till 31st March, 2019.
How to get complimentary Jio Prime for another year?
According to Bafna, Jio will not be giving the Jio Prime to everyone. There is small catch. According to his latest tweet, you need to open My Jio app and there will be an option to “Express your interest for complimentary Jio Prime Membership”. You have to register there to get the additional 12 months benefits.
Although there is no official news confirmation about this and even there is no “Express Interest” option in MyJio app too. But hopefully it is a true news like before. We have to just wait for the official confirmation.
