Reliance Jio revises tariff

Reliance Jio today slashed prices of its 4G data plans. The new Jio plans are live, and start as low as Rs 149 per month and offer 1GB of data per day. The cheapest offering continues to be through Sachet Packs, which start at Rs 19 for 0.15GB data for a validity of one day. This goes up to the Rs 799 plan, which has also been revised to now offer 140GB data at the rate of 5GB/day for a period of 28 days. Earlier, the daily limit was restricted to 3GB.

Edward Snowden on Aadhaar data breach

Last week, the UIDAI was in the middle of a big controversy, after a journalist from The Tribune alleged that some agents working for the authority, were handing over crucial Aadhaar details, in exchange of a mere Rs 500 over Paytm. UIDAI soon reverted to the accusation, calling it a case of misreporting. Ever since, there has been a back and forth between the publication and the authorities, with the latter recently demanding the reporter to be arrested for false accusations . To this, US NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowden has responded, and he holds UIDAI responsible.

Google Pay

Yesterday, in an official post, Google said that it was bringing together all of its projects and activities it has around digital payments under the roof of a single brand – Google Pay. Until now, Google enabled payment services through its Android Pay app for Android smartphones. Similarly, you could use Google Wallet for paying via a browser such as Chrome.

Xiaomi Global VP Manu Kumar Jain today announced that the company managed to sell over a million units of the Redmi 5A since just a month of its first sale. And to celebrate the big number, Xiaomi is offering the device at a special price of Rs 4,999 (as against the selling price of Rs 5,999) to its first 5 million customers.
