Reliance Jio has finally started a doorstep delivery of its SIM cards by means of a pilot program. This isn’t surprising since there were reports already that Reliance Jio is soon planning to start a free home delivery of its 4G SIM cards. What it means is you no longer have to stand in long queues just to get a SIM card. To recall, Reliance Jio initially recorded 16 million subscribers within a month from commencing its commercial operations. The company, however, is aiming to reach 100 million subscribers milestone by the end of this year.
How to get the Jio SIM home delivered?
This program is currently under testing and rolling out to following cities in phased manner: Mumbai, Pune, Delhi NCR, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Vizag, Jaipur, Chandigarh, and Ahmedabad. It is also said to expand to other cities eventually. As part of this program, people can schedule a SIM delivery through an invite. Once they receive an invite from the company, they can request a home delivery at any time they want.
Jio has also started this doorstep delivery program for enterprises and housing complex where a group of people is interested in SIM card. In that case, all you have to do is visit this link and fill the form or give a missed call from your mobile to 1800-200-200-9. Once done, Jio representative will establish a contact with you so that you can schedule a visit.
The ongoing demonetisation could have triggered Jio to start this since people are now queueing outside banks and ATMs instead of Reliance stores. A recent report also indicates that Reliance Jio is now witnessing a severe decline in subscriber growth rate due to demonetisation. This could also be the reason Jio is trying to get more customers onboard.
Since the advent of Jio and its unprecedented welcome offer comprising free voice calling and high-speed Internet, the need for 4G VoLTE has been on the rise. In fact, recent IDC report shows that Reliance Retail’s LYF is among the top five cell phone brands in India, thanks to its affordable 4G smartphones lineup.
