Reliance Jio has taken the telecom industry by storm, and now it is also being awarded for it. In a recent announcement, Reliance Jio revealed that it has won the “Best Mobile Operator Service for Consumers” award at the Global Mobile Awards 2018 at Mobile World Congress (MWC).
In addition to that, the company’s JioTV app won in the ‘Best Mobile Video Content’ category. “It is a matter of national pride that an innovative new mobile service from India has been recognized at the most prestigious global platform,” said Manoj Sinha, Minister of Communications, India.
“We are particularly satisfied that India is being propelled to global digital leadership with this,” he added. Sinha has been leading the Indian delegation at MWC representing and promoting India’s new global digital leadership initiatives.
Simultaneously, Reliance Jio is in a tiff with Cellular Operators’ Association of India (COAI) for alleged “defamatory statements”. In a recent progress to the situation, Reliance in a letter to COAI on said, “COAI and Rajan Mathews (Director General, COAI) are hereby called upon to issue a public apology and issue appropriate clarification expressly regretting their callous and defamatory statements through a separate press release issued no later than 48 hours from receipt of this notice.”
The association last week had countered Jio’s verbal offensive against it, saying that was duty-bound as an association to raise concerns related to growth of the sector.
