Tablighi Jamaat can’t explain mischief of members after leaving Delhi

While describing the 'difficulty' it faced to transport people out of Delhi, Tablighi Jamaat fails to explain why its associates and affiliates either mingled with people in their respective villages and why many of them just vanished in thin air

As people stay indoors to escape the havoc of the coronavirus disease (COVID) and dealing with office work from home, Reliance Jio has said it will double the data in its pack to keep people connected virtually. Jio says that this will help people to stay at home.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had the day before yesterday appealed to the people to stay home and observe a “Janata Curfew” on 22 March, Sunday.

Jio packs with double data

In the statement issued by Jio, it has been told that you will get double as a data-booster. Meaning if you are already running a pack and its daily high-speed data is spent, then you can use these packs. For example, you get 1.5 GB of high-speed data every day. You can use these packs at its expense. The validity of this double data will be according to your existing plan.

With these packs, you will also get calling minutes on non-live numbers. You will also get 75, 200, 500 and 1000 minutes of calling facility to call a non-live number.

Apart from this, the government telecom company has also launched the ‘Work from Home’ plan for people working from home. The statement issued by the company said that those customers who do not have broadband connection and landline of the company can take advantage of this.

“With businesses encouraging employees to work from home, a growing need for remote interactions and families having more time for recreation, there is a growing requirement among users of seamless and more data,” Jio said in a statement. “Through these voucher upgrades, Jio is extending help to the users and ensuring that Indians have access to uninterrupted, abundant and affordable data to meet their current connectivity needs.”

Once the data is consumed users will get 64kbps.

Since the price hike in December, Jio and other telecoms have made several changes in the plans that they offer. Jio earlier this month already made changes in its Annual plans. It bought out a new Rs 4,999 plan and increased the cost of Rs 2,020 plan to Rs 2,121.
