Reliance Jio completed its 2nd anniversary earlier last month. And, to celebrate the occasion, the telco rolled out a complementary data pack, dubbed ‘Jio Celebrations Pack’. The pack was to offer 2GB data per day for a fixed validity period in the month of September and October. The additional data for the September had already been delivered. And now, the second instalment of the celebrations pack is here and the users will get 2GB data per day till November 2. However, the validity could differ for different users.
How to Check Your 4G Data Balance?
We don’t know if the users with no active tariff plans will have the benefits of the Jio Celebrations pack. However, if you are a Jio subscriber, you can check your data balance by logging into the My Jio app on your device. Once you get in, head over to ‘My Plans’ section and look for the ‘Jio Celebrations Pack’ that should state it would offer 2GB data per day along with an expiry date.
It is important to note that different users could receive the Celebrations pack at different times. Jio, on its 2nd anniversary, announced to credit a total of 16GB data, 8GB each month to its subscribers. So, the time of addition of the pack could be different but the amount of extra data remains 8GB each month.
