Reliance Jio Introduces 1GB Emergency Data Loan Pack – Here’s How To Get It


For many occasions where we are short of mobile data and want internet access urgently, Reliance Jio has offered a high speed mobile data loan option. The company will allow its prepaid users to take out emergency data loans of 1 GB each, up to 5 GB.

The price for these 1GB data packs has been set at Rs. 11 by Jio and users can pay the full amount, depending on the data loan they take out, at a later stage. In ideal scenarios, one GB of data should be enough for most people to complete their tasks or play the game they were stuck in and choose another data plan that offers more data and likely longer validity.

That said, read the detailed guide below in case you want to know how it all works and how you can qualify for a 1GB data loan on Jio.
