Based on the advisory of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), Reliance Jio will be withdrawing its 3 months complimentary free unlimited service under the new Summer Surprise offer for Jio Prime customers.

TRAI had asked Jio to withdraw the offer, and Jio is complying with the advisory. In the next few days, the offer will be rolled back however, those who have already recharged with Rs. 303 will still be eligible for the offer. However, once the roll-back is complete, you wouldn't get the additional 3 months free service on paying Rs. 303.

Last month Jio had announced that 72 million customers had opted for Jio Prime and as a token of gratitude, the company announced 3 months free service with billing starting later in July. However, this offer has now been canceled.
