Fed up of long queues? Order your Jio SIM online for free

Reliance Jio SIM

The Jio fever has enabled several people to start new businesses. We earlier reported that local vendors are selling the free Reliance Jio SIM card, thriving black market, a website is landed in to the field offering new Jio connection online. It has claimed itself to provide the Jio 4G SIM for free at your doorstep, targeting customers facing long queues and unavailability issues at Reliance Digital stores.

To avail the SIM card, all you have to do is just fill up a form online giving details like, name, phone number and delivery address and email id. At the time of delivery, the delivery boy will collect the address proof, identity proof and a passport size photograph from the customer in exchange of a new SIM card.

Though all it seems to be fair but it is not like that, as there is a catch in the offering. The e-commerce website is charging Rs. 199 for the delivery and takes 7-10 days for the same. Also, the activation process will also take a longer time as the courier company ships the KYC to the online vendor which will further send it to Jio authorised person.

In addition, the JioFi dongle, which is being sold at Rs. 2000, also selling at the website with Jio SIM card, with additional Rs. 199 for delivery. The company receives all the payments online in advance through PaUmoney.

However, Reliance Jio has not announced any online or home delivery. Showing concern, ecoupondeals said, “Some scam sites are taking over peoples on Whatsapp, emails & SMS also. They claims to delivery a Reliance Jio Sim at your doorsteps in just a small cost of shipping charges. Please don’t go for any such site they are 100% fake & they might share your personal data with 3rd party to make money.”

As we know that Rs. 199 is not a big amount and when it comes to unlimited 4G Internet for three months, no one think twice to get it in exchange. The same is the reason why people are purchasing the Jio SIM card from local retailers, while it is available for free. And hence, it seems that the shortage in supply as compared to demands will lead to increase the sales of such websites, which are selling the Jio SIM cards at higher prices for delivery.
