Unlike the regular offline process, with the newly introduced the eKYC, the customers can get the Jio 4G SIM without any hassle. Once the eKYC is successfully completed, the Jio 4G SIM will be activated within 15 minutes. The Jio’s representative will also collect the fingerprint of the user for authentication. The issued SIM will be activated for both voice calls and data within 15 minutes after completing the verification process. Though Airtel and Vodafone also started using eKYC for instant activation of their SIM cards. As of now, no other operators except Jio are offering doorstep activation.
All the Jio 4G SIM cards activated on or before December 3rd will be eligible for the Jio Welcome Offer with unlimited 4G internet, voice calls, and SMS. We might see the similar kind of offer with unlimited usage in a new name that is rumored to be extended til March 2017. As of now, the free voice calls is useless since the company is experiencing heavy call drops. Jio says the lack of sufficient interconnection points is the main reason for call drops and the unlimited offer is expected to be extended till the interconnection problem is solved.
