Reliance Jio today unveiled Jio Bharat device - an entry-level internet-enabled phone at 999. The device is aimed to enable all sections of society to reap the benefits of digital technology in entirety. Alongside, the company also announced Jio Bharat plans with unlimited voice calls and internet data. 

At the moment, there are two Jio Bharat plans offered by Jio. These are priced at 123 and 1,234. While the former has a validity of 28 days, the latter is an annual plan.

Jio Bharat plan 123 will offer unlimited voice calls and 14 GB of total data to the customers, compared to other operator’s 179 plan for voice calls and 2GB data. Similarly, Jio Bharat 1,234 plan offers 0.5 GB mobile data per day i.e. a total of 128GB for the plan validity. Along with the data, the plan also comes with free voice calling. The company claims that the plan offers 7 times more data than competitors and 25% saving on a per day basis.

Speaking on the occasion, Akash Ambani, Chairman, Reliance Jio, commented, "There are still 250 million mobile phone users in India who remain ‘trapped’ in the 2G era, unable to tap into basic features of the internet at a time when the world stands at the cusp of a 5G revolution. 6 years ago, when Jio was launched, we made it clear that Jio will leave no stone unturned to democratize internet and pass the benefits of technology to every Indian. Technology will no longer remain a privilege for a select few." 

“The new Jio Bharat phone is another step in that direction. It is at the centre of innovation, and it continues to demonstrate our focus on bringing disproportionate and true value for different segments of users with meaningful, real-life use cases. At Jio, we have and will continue to take bold steps to eradicate this DIGITAL DIVIDE and welcome every Indian to JOIN THIS MOVEMENT. WE CARE for every citizen of our nation, and we will go the extra mile to ensure every single person reaps the benefits of this DIGITAL SOCEITY that our great nation is turning into," he added.
