Update on 31 Mar: Jio prime free for one year for existing users, new users to pay Rs 99 for the subscription. If you’re an existing user, you need to opt-in for the complimentary service from MyJio app.
Are you a Jio subscriber? If yes.
Then it is very likely that you have a prime subscription.
Jio prime subscription is almost mandatory for every subscriber of the telecom operator. The Mukesh Ambani led telco announced Jio Prime subscription last year with a validity of one year. Jio prime subscription will end on March 31, 2018.
Now, with Jio prime subscription approaching expiry date, the company is expected to make an announcement very soon.
So far, there has been no official word about future of the membership program of Jio. Meanwhile, it has been said that the benefits of existing recharges done by customers will continue.

Moreover, it provides free access to premium applications of the company such as JioTv, JioMusic, JioCinema, etc. The subscription costs Rs 99 for a year.

Reliance Jio Prime Membership Expiry Date
Here are the three likely possibilities as Jio prime subscription approaches its last date 31 March, 2018.
- Jio might extend its subscription program for another year.
- Jio may scrap the subscription program.
- The company may increase cost of subscription.
Of the three possible scenarios, the first one looks very likely. The company may extend its subscription program for another year. However, we expect new jio subscribers would be charged Rs 99 to qualify for Jio Recharge Plans. In this case, if you are an active member of Jio, no need to worry as the subscription will continue for another year.
There is also a slight possibility that the company may increase cost of subscription or introduce a new program to continue passing on the benefits to its subscribers. By all means, an announcement is expected very soon from Reliance Jio and it may once again be full of surprises.
Another possibility is that Jio may entirely scrap its membership program which will allow even the non-prime users to avail the benefits. There is no mention of Jio prime on official website of the telecom operator, so there is a chance that the company may have the plans to end its loyalty program.
Jio Prime vs Non-Prime Plans
This comparison between Jio Prime and non-prime is at the time of announcement of the membership program. However, at present Jio website doesn’t mention non-prime users. Any new user has to pay Rs 99 on first recharge towards prime. But with the expiry date of Jio prime nearing, users are thinking about the extra benefits of the program.
