Ambani said around 900 crore calls from Jio to 3 other large telecom operators were blocked for lack of support from existing telecom companies.
Congratulating Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his “bold and historic decision to demonetise old currency,” Ambani said the PM has brought unproductive money into productive use in one move.
He noted in Calling demonetisation the strongest push yet towards a digital economy, he said with Jio Money every Indian will now have a digital ATM in their hands.
Hope all customers happy by this announcement and enjoy the new year offer as well.
