Reliance JIO Complains Against Airtel Offers, Airtel Ads Misleading, Differentiating Customers: Reliance Jio To Trai

According to TRAI, Reliance Jio Accounts for Nearly 40 Percent of India’s Broadband Connections. 512Kbps is the minimum speed to qualify as broadband, as per TRAI.

The Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio has demanded highest penalty imposed on Sunil Bharti Mittal’s Bharti Airtel as well as direct the company to immediately withdraw the offers. Jio said some of Airtel’s tariff plans and promotional offers such as the so-called “first recharge” ones that, for Rs293 and Rs449 are being marketed in a misleading manner.

It said that Airtel’s advertisements of these offers are an attempt to lure prospective subscribers making them believe that they will be provided 1 GB data per day for 70 days. Under the said plans, Airtel is offering unlimited local and STD calls along with 1 GB of mobile internet per day for 70 days to customers with 4G handsets and 4G SIM. In the case of Rs 293 plan, unlimited calling is limited within the Airtel network.
