Reliance Jio to start delivering 6 million JioPhones from today

Reliance Jio has begun deliveries for the JioPhone, its low-priced 4G feature phone, with the company saying it will complete deliveries for 6 million units by Diwali. The deliveries will begin in a phased manner and will be completed within 15 days.

Earlier in the month of September, JioPhone crossed 6 million pre-orders and the company had to close the pre-orders just a day and a half after it was opened.

Customers in rural areas and small cities have a reason to rejoice as they will get the handset before their urban counterparts, according to a PTI report citing a Reliance Jio channel partner. Customers who had booked the JioPhone in August could soon get their hands on the ultra-affordable 4G VoLTE-enabled phone. He was, however, unsure about the dates for the next round of bookings for JioPhone.

Those who have already pre-booked the JioPhone can track their status, via order number. Reportedly, after three years, if the customer returns the phone without damage, the full amount would be refunded. That channel partner said, "The Chairman (Mukesh Ambani) had said that the JioPhone will bridge the digital divide between rural and urban India". Those who have pre-ordered the device, have already paid Rs 500 as a fee and will have to pay the remaining Rs 1000 once the phone is delivered. The next batch of Jio Phone pre-orders have not started yet and there is no information from the company on the expected date.
