“Jio will ensure that no Indian is deprived of affordable Internet and the fruits of the digital revolution. By offering the ‘JioPhone Diwali Gift’, we are making an investment of Rs 1,500 towards bringing every new person from the bottom of the economic pyramid into the Internet economy,” RIL Chairman & Managing Director Mukesh D. Ambani said. “This also shows our commitment to the success of our Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visionary Digital India Mission,” he added.
