India is constantly experiencing the positive impact of digitalization. Digital methods have not just made our lives easier, but have also allowed us to carry out daily tasks much easily.

The Government of India has even encouraged Indians to adopt digital methods in order to ensure the country’s growth. However, India will only be able to progress in this regard if Internet access and other related services are made more accessible and affordable.

About Reliance Jio

In order to ensure the availability of Internet even across remote parts of the country, Reliance Industries Limited launched Jio in September 2016, with the aim of creating a comprehensive digital ecosystem. Reliance Jio is among the leading 4G LTE networks in India and promises to transform India’s mobile Internet landscape in the near future.

Impact created by the operator

The entry of Reliance Jio has created quite a stir in the telecommunications industry. Competitors in the industry were forced to revise tariff rates due to Jio’s economical offerings. The company had initially launched its services by offering free Internet access and apps until the end of December 2016.

However, Jio further extended the service offering till 31st March 2017 through its Happy New Year Offer. Some reports even claim that Jio may extend the flagship plan till 30th June, though at a minimal cost of INR 100. The amount will be charged for data services, whereas voice calling will continue to remain free for a lifetime. With quality services at affordable rates, Jio has now become a major competitor for incumbent operators in the industry.

Jio – The reason for India’s digital transformation

Reliance Jio, offering among the best 4G network speeds in India, allows users to empower themselves by accessing data without worrying about the associated costs. Apart from data services, Jio has also created a range of useful mobile applications that meet the utilitarian as well as entertainment needs of millions across the country.

Reliance Jio’s range of apps

Some of the mobile applications available include MyJio, which allows you to keep a track of your balance. In addition to this, you could even recharge and check your data consumption through the app. Jio Join is another application that allows you to make calls from your native dialer to any number. However, this is possible only if your device supports VoLTE (Voice over Long Term Evolution) technology.

Jio Security, a Norton powered security app, comprises a host of features to safeguard your phone against malicious websites and other threats. Jio Beats is an entertainment app with a comprehensive library of music, through which you could stream songs.

Besides the aforementioned apps, there are numerous other applications like JioOnDemand, Jio Play, JioXpressNews, and JioMags. These mobile applications facilitate the usage of digital means, thus helping India transform.

Mukesh Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries, believes that the demand for data is increasing. Jio has therefore set up a commitment to enriching the life of every Indian through its service offerings and is confident of bringing about a drastic digital change.
