Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd. will start charging for voice calls after the first 1,000 minutes, according to a channel check conducted by foreign brokerage firm CLSA.

In financial analysis, a channel check is third-party research on a company's business, based on information collected from the distribution channels of the company.

Reliance Jio has limited free voice up to the first 1,000 minutes per month, after which only calls within the Jio network will be free.

The Mukesh Ambani led company has not disclosed any charges for Jio Prime users who exceed the 1,000 minutes per month mark, in the tariff plans on its website.

Voice calls will be free within the Jio network, and will be charged for other networks after crossing the limit. Jio also has included two more tariff plans – Rs 149 and Rs 499 – in the ‘Jio Prime Offer’, along with the earlier announced Rs 303 plan.

The new Rs 149 plan offers two gigabytes (GB) of fourth generation (4G) data without any daily limit, while the Rs 499 plan offers 60 GB of 4G data with a daily limit of 2 GB.

The channel checks also revealed that the company could cancel the Jio Prime membership, if a user fails to do a minimum recharge of Rs 149 every month.

Jio Prime membership and its benefits could be cancelled unless a minimum recharge of Rs 149 is made every month.
