BOOKS RECORD BREAKING 6 MILLION JIOPHONES WITHIN A DAY!
Reliance Retail Limited (RRL) booked more than 6 million JioPhones within a day of the much-awaited opening of JioPhone booking on 24 August, 2017. With this, 6 million Indians are only one step away from experiencing Digital Life to the fullest.
RRL also registered an additional 10 million expressions of interest for the JioPhone. The bookings, and the expressions of interest, for JioPhone were received from across the country with equal participation from metros, smaller towns and rural areas.
Given the overwhelming demand for the JioPhone which has significantly exceeded initial expectations, the booking process has been temporarily halted so that customers are not inconvenienced and receive their JioPhones without much delay. Customers will continue to be able to register their interest and will be notified on a priority basis when the booking process resumes.
The deliveries of the JioPhones will commence, as planned, in the auspicious period of Navratri in September.
The booking process was handled smoothly with very positive feedback from customers. Offline as well as online channels were used for the booking with minimal waiting time for customers. Customers in the remotest corners of the country were able to book their JioPhone at the same time and in the same manner as anywhere else in the country.
During this process, RRL actively encouraged the use of digital payment methods, especially the popular UPI BHIM app. As a result, a large proportion of retailers and customers paid the booking amount digitally, thus providing a big fillip to the Government’s digital inclusion agenda.
The revolutionary JioPhone, that was unveiled at the Reliance Industries AGM on 21st July 2017, has several unique features that will make life simple, smart, and secure for users. With the JioPhone, every Indian will have access to the highest quality, highest quantity, most affordable and unlimited data.
