These users will be provided with 5 redeemable vouchers of Rs 201 each. -For new Jio Prime users: After exchanging their hotspot device, new users with have to first make a recharge of at least Rs 408 and above to activate the Prime account. Once this is done, they are provided with 10 redeemable vouchers…
