The telecom sector in India is seeing some good competition with the on-going data war with cut-throat competition between telcos. In a move to undercut other telcos, companies have been rolling out cheaper plans with added data benefits, which ultimately is a win for the consumers. Earlier this week, Reliance Jio introduced Double Dhamaka offer wherein it is not only offering Rs 100 discount on recharges above Rs 300, but also offering 1.5GB extra data daily to its users.

The discount of Rs 100 can be availed when users recharge throughout the month of June. While the Rs 100 discount is applicable on recharges above Rs 300, Jio is also offering 20 percent discount on packs priced below Rs 300. For instance, the Rs 149 prepaid plan can be availed for Rs 120, but you will have to make a refill using MyJio app. Also Read - Jio Freedom Plans 2021: Jio launches 5 new prepaid plans with no daily data limit - check details

How to get Rs 100 discount on recharges
To begin with, you need to be a Jio Prime member to be able to avail the offer. You will need to download MyJio app on your smartphone, and login to the app.
Open MyJio app and tap on the second tab at the bottom called Recharge, which will take you another page where you will see all the available plans.
There are different plans to choose from, right from the ones that offer 1.5GB daily data to the ones that offer 5GB daily data. Select the one priced above Rs 300, and tap on buy.
The payment summary page will already show the discounted price. For instance, I choose Rs 498 plan, and after discount of Rs 50, I had to pay Rs 448.
The remaining Rs 50 discount can be availed when you make a payment using PhonePe wallet. In case you don t have one, you can download the PhonePe app from the Google Play Store, and create an account.
On successful payment using PhonePe wallet, you will get an instant cashback of Rs 50, which can be used for utility payments, mobile recharge or any other purpose. In short, you get a total of Rs 100 off when you recharge using MyJio app and pay using PhonePe wallet.
How to redeem 1.5GB extra data
As a part of Double Dhamaka offer, you also get extra 1.5GB daily data on all plans. So, for instance, if Rs 149 plan offers 1.5GB daily data, you will now get 1.5GB + 1.5GB, which is a total of 3GB daily data throughout the validity period. But you don t get the extra data by default after making the recharge, and instead, you will have to redeem it.
After making a recharge of Rs 300 and above, open MyJio app, and tap on the bottom tab called My Vouchers.
You will be able to see the available vouchers, one of which will be to redeem additional data. At times, the voucher may not appear instantly, so you will have to wait until 24 hours before you see it.
Select the voucher, tap on redeem, and click on confirm. Once that is done, the 1.5GB additional data will be added to your account.
