Yes, reliance jio will be a sustainable business in cause due to the jio all the other data rates are less today. The competitive companies are luring by special offers and special discounts but they are not providing services like jio. Moreover, competitive companies for jio was airtel which tried to lure people by there an advertisement for the fastest network but can't tackle jio in long rum.

Of course! We have to agree to the fact that the telecom industry has undergone a great revolution after the entry of Reliance JIO. And especially in a country like India, Jio will be a sustainable business because Indians are always addicted to things that are free.

With the introduction of Jio, the majority of the population irrespective of age, have become a part of the Internet.

And access to the internet is the first major leap in the digitization of our developing nation. It's free calls and internet services have influenced Indians to a great extent, and that influence will continue to flourish in the coming years.

Yes, no doubt Jio is providing free data and calling services. But is network is really very poor, It is going to spread far and wide and give a tough competition to the market only if it improves its network connectivity.

Well, I totally disagree that reliance jio is going to be a sustainable business in India. I mean yes its true that it gives free data services calling services at such little amount and leaves all other sustainable telecom companies far behind it which definitely bringing up unhealthy competition in a market. Even TRAI order jio company to stop his services. But as a smart businessman, Ambani ji somehow managed to continue it. But jio a newly launched company provide this services from his oil company profits. Obviously, one day it gonna start his charges then pre established companies like Bharti Airtel and BSNL will come in the frame. Other reliance projects like trends and reliance fresh eventually jio also have to fall. But till then people will continue to use jio and its benifits. I must say step of launching jio was a step closer to move towards digital India. But in actual jio has no tie ups with modi ji's digital India thing.

Jio is not a sustainable model. It is not possible to make money by providing free service, Mukesh Ambani is bringing money from his core asset and business i.e oil. This model has killed lakhs of jobs. He will walk out from business like he has done in reliance trends and how reliance fresh stores have shut down.

Hello everyone,

I think Reliance jio is definitely a sustainable business model in a country like India. As it is providing internet and call at very low cost compare to other companies, India is going digital in faster rate. As PM MODI said he wants India to become digital, both urban and rural areas, Reliance jio is playing huge role in making his dream come true.

And because of providing free and low cost internet, they are planning for the huge success in future as people get addicted to internet that they will definitely pay for that in future. By this both parties are getting benefits.

Yes, Reliance Jio is a sustainable model and will be profitable because,

1) By giving free data plan and voice calls it has added over 100 million Indian users.
2) Its data and call plans are cheaper than all of its competitors.
3) Many people who now understand benefits of internet will continue using it by paying.
4) Many teenagers who got addicted to free internet will start paying.
5) By introducing feature phone, Jio has played a masterstroke.The users will have to deposit 1500 rs and most of them will not claim that money after 3 years and result in huge profits for Jio.

We Indian have become habitual for free services. There are certain points which we need to consider.

1. Despite free services Ambani made huge money from jio, how?
2. Because of jio other vendors are in big trouble and making losses almost every month. Or merging with each other to cut down operational costs.
3. Because of jio a kind of unhealthy competition is created in the telecom industry. As entire jio network is setup on govt land for which I doubt Ambani is paying anything where as other vendors are paying a big cost for running their network.
4. Our govt is responsible for maintaining a healthy competition between multiple vendors in an industry, here in case of jio our govt is giving out of box support Ambani's. May be because Ambani's are a good friend of our PM or our govt is returning favour which has been done by Ambani's during 2014 Loksabha elections.

Whatever is the case but users are happy with free. Jio services and soon other vendors will not exist anymore. Only, jio will dominate the industry.

Hey all.

Yes, I agree. Reliance Jio is a sustainable business model in a country like India. By introducing Jio Mr.Ambani Will offer internet service and voice calls at low cost. So that's why all the people including poor can able to USS internet. The signal strength and quality are even good in villages also. When we can say that a technology or product or any service is sustainable means when it satisfies the kind of people's requirements and it has to be used by all people even villagers also. So, Jio is used by all kinds of peoples. By using this Jio the information is transferred rapidly. The knowledge is shared by people using Internet and communication also good, the even common man also knows about new things which are available in social networks.

The Coin has heads and trails like that for any thing there is advantages and disadvantages. Jio also has some disadvantages, by pointing the disadvantages we can't say that it is not fit by ignoring it's used. So we have to accept both. By accepting the both Jio is sustainable businesses.

According to me, JIO is a sustainable business. Those days before the entry of jio. The Cost of the internet is very high. People have to pay more amount for their internet and to their phone balances. The Internet is must, everyone must have the internet. Without the internet, nothing is possible. After the entry of jio, Price of the internet is free, so everyone gets the internet free and also call charges are also free. This offer is superb. I know it also has negative points, but to middle-class, this offer is worth enough. Thanks to MR. Ambani who innovates this offer. Considering the negative points, because of this offer people have gone using their mobile often, they are addicted to the internet, they cannot able to come out of this. This leads to serious health issues like eye sight problem etc. This offer is best, even now also the price of internet is low, Because of this offer, it affects other companies? (Airtel, idea etc) But they also reduce their prices to some extent. All because of jio. So innovation of jio is worth and useful to the people. Thank you.

Of course, reliance JIO is a sustainable business model in a country like INDIA.

2. Provided a cheap and fast network to the people for connecting to the world.
3. The people who never knew what internet was and what is its power have started learning it.

The moment Jio came into existence as a project in India, people rushed to stores because of its free availability and extraordinary offers. Since that day, this network has critically changed the picture of telecom businesses as well as assisted in making people use the internet services greatly. Earlier it was the young generation only who actually knew the usage of Internet and the older ones never took the advantage of this facility just with a fear if they will actually be able to operate, which used to get double thinking what if I don't get it - Wastage of money and consequently skipping the idea of giving it a try. However this picture changed with Jio networks. It has done a tremendous job and won't be wrong to say that it's contributing in making India a digital nation.

Reliance jio is not a sustainable business model in a country like India.

Because of the offer, other telecom companies are suffering from debt which in turn increase the national debt.

India needs cheap offers like the one provided by jio but such offers should be sustainable and should be formulated keeping in view the future of the industry.

Other service providers should upgrade their technology to provide cheap services and try matching with with the universal levels.

Yes, in the country like India which is a big market for greedy people, jio will definitely sustain longer. Jio gave many lucrative offers which not only saved our money from getting wasted over internet and calls but gave us high-speed internet access too.

As we all know that everyone is dependent on the internet nowadays, Whatsapp, Facebook and insta have become the need of their life. Not only that, the internet is a crucial part of student's life too, they prefer e-books more than their books, from buying vegetables to online payments and bank works everything is reliable on **INTERNET**.

So, in such digital India if we Indians get free or cheaper internet services then why would we go for the other networks with less lucrative offers than jio.

Yes, it has some disadvantages too like over usage of internet etc but still, its advantages has upper hand on its sustainability in India.

Why should Jio be only rather be responsible for the addiction, cyber crimes and considered as a way for the wastage of time caused by youth of our country. I mean it is telecom company that is merely providing connectivity to people and making it easy for people of all sections to have access to internet data which nowadays has become a part of our day to day lives. By doing this they aren't affecting the so called ethics but are establishing a sustainable business in India. If you really think jio is solely responsible for all the cyber related crimes in India and all the ill effects you've mentioned below then why not blame the other companies who provide internet services too?!

Hii friends,

Yes, its one of the revolutionary event occured in India. JIO. I think its not sustainable buisness model. Because it have certain disadvantages like:.

1. Every person of every age is getting addicted to the internet, this will cause our ethics getting worst.

2. Children are creating the latest sensation of social networking sites like FB, Whatsapp, because due to jio its free of cost. I agree that many students are getting online education but still, a large number of students are stupidly getting addicted to smartphone etc.

3. Because of jio and its free of cost services, the education and hard work of students will fade away day by day, because free services of jio is nothing more than a spoon feeding, as its told anything in excess is not good for us.

4. Although our youth is getting drenched in the rains of jio, at the same time our whole youth is in the web of destruction, addiction, online crimes, hacking.

5. Digitisation is not bad a thing, but according to me, there should be a little bit of bondage, to the freedom of our youth, because a huge independence is also not good.

Yes. Definitely, I would like to go for its positive aspects as many of my friends here too will be talking in its favour. According to me, Reliance Jio`s move to providing free internet and calling services is a great push to digitisation which our honourable PM Mr. Narendra Modi has been insisting for a long. Also when the free tenure gets over, its prices still remain lower than any other services provided by other companies. In lieu with Reliance Jio`s facilities, bigger companies like Airtel and Vodafone are reducing their prices. Also, Reliance Jio's this services provided for a lot of conveniency amongst different people especially the ones who want to learn new and different things but couldn't afford them for being poor. Earlier they had to use the internet and calling judicially hence their learning used to get restricted. So I think Reliance Jio is a sustainable business model. Thank You.

Hello everyone!,

For the past few months, Reliance Jio is a company that has earned maximum profits before and after demonetization due its offers that provided free internet and calling services, for a limited period. This led people to invest a small amount of money to buy sim cards and register themselves to avail the exciting offers promised by the company. When each individual did the same process it went adding up which helped the company to gain a lot of profit which has made it possible for the company to continue to provide 'New and exciting offers'. Also the folks who got themselves subscribed before 'THE FREE CALLING AND INTERNET'offers, do not have to pay much after that. So customers were also not in loss. Therefore all that I want to say is, since the company from the beginning has got millions of people subscribed, it has perpetually been in profit and because of that they can still continue to provide a better connectivity including the offers which makes this company appealing and sustainable.

Hi Guys,

Yes, "Reliance Jio will be a sustainable business model in a country like India" because Indian market is a very big place for any business growth and if we talk about IT market so it is growing rapidly in the nation so there is no doubt in sustain the "Jio" business in the Indian market. This time we can clearly say that India is a communication base nation so these kinds of products are a priority of the nation. As we all know the India is developing country so these products are very helpful to develop the nation because without communication we can not do anything better. Even if there are many companies which are being involved in this business nevertheless business will catch the height in the market. Because demand will remain higher than supply in this nation. And "Jio" offering the maximum features definitely will occupy a huge place in an Indian market. People always want something new and this product is totally new for them with many new advantages like "fast speed" at all. Buying this product people can trust it because Reliance is not a new company it is a brand for the people. So overall it is a purposely boon for the people of this nation.

Yes! It will.

Friends around 90% population of India use mobile phones as a part of their daily life. On such a big platform, a company like Jio entered and grabbed the most of the telecom market. Because of this the companies like airtel, Vodafone who were deciding the tariff plan unreasonably are trying to regain the lost market for them. For them, now the situation is so bad that reliance Jio is deciding their tariff plan indirectly. Because of the huge competition in this market, plans are affordable even by the man who sleeps at foot path, that is because of Jio effect. It also supports the dream of digital India to come true since internet now is everyone's cup of coffee. It will also help our nation to become the cash less economy. Ultimately we can say that Reliance Jio will be a sustainable business model in a country like India.

All the above suggestion are good and should get appreciation.

But my suggestion is different because People usually using an old number if we take an example of mine usually 5 years and more.

So its difficult to have another number if [JIO is providing number potability ] which you are using less.

Taking about services, services are quite good as compare to other brands but some places network is still.

Common. Those user having a good data speed are having but those who don't have are not getting because of last of coverage.

Taking about the compatibility it's working on 4g and taking about the market the minimum 4g handset going to cost you 4500-5000.

So its not for a small scale common user who uses no internet phone.

Thus it's a great move but still a lot of room is there for improvement.

I don't think so (it is sustainable), whatever launches (i.e Free offer welcome and new year), is free but reason is that when we call, sms, or other facilities they provided & after that one service is to be used the related that advertisement is displaying on it, so according to that they get their cost of advertising. And also the point when person purchases "JIO SIM" they have to submit their "AADHAR Identity". So whatever they submitted this document there AADHAR is linked with their Bank Accounts and almost 90 million purchases jio. So, now think of the moment it linked with the bank account so the after the offer complete as they can easily detect their cost from AADHAR services.

Reliance Jio us Mukesh Ambani's dream project. He could not have started it earlier because of legal restrictions (His family feud), but when he got free from them he immediately acquired Infotel Broadband and started laying off optical fibers all around India. He launched the services in 2016 as full-fledged under the name 'Jio' and his attractive offers have definitely created internet addiction among people of every age. The 4G speed provided by other telecom is very slow and Ambani knows he can easily surpass them. And He will get 150 per person minimum and that's a great number because, in India, a user doing a recharge of more than 150 is considered a valuable customer by all other operators. So Jio will be most profitable of them all. And as more and more people will start using smartphones, Jio will become more dominant and eliminate all other companies from the map. After laying off the optical fibers, the calls are connected directly from internet so technically there is zero cost for Jio for all the future calls. Jio is capable of proving internet at 5G, 6G and even 7G speeds. Other operators were charging heavy for internet up till now and gaining excessive profits, Jio has brought them at level.

We should not forget Mukesh Ambani once revolutionized telecom sector when he launched Reliance telecommunications, but in 2002 it was taken away from him otherwise we would have seen Jio effect very earlier.

First of all, I would like to clear what is sustainable business and then I proceed further.

Sustainable business or green business is which preserve the environment and conserve the natural resource With and of long-term profitability.

Jio meets all the above criteria.

It creates green environment i.e. free to all irrespective of caste religion sex.

All the section of society especially why students use free internet. Promoting Digital India.

Providing free voice calls help in connecting the world.

The most important point which is revolving in most of yours mind is how Jio has an aim of long term profit.

See Jio just try that more and more people will use Jio app such as Jio tv Jio music Jio money transaction and many more they are still inventing.

What they try to do is make people a habit of using Jio app in every walk of life.

And when we get addicted of this we just wanna use Jio on finger tips even when they introduce tariffs, money on voice call or say internet.

So overall it's a sustainable business!

Now for the "how"? we have to see this from both perspective businessman and customer of India.

As business point, Ambani sir, firstly distributed JIO services for free of cost so now he has a huge number of user who is addicted. He set up platform now on which JIO is charging nominal data rates.

Now as a perspective of customer using the services of JIO in testing phase show them how reliable is JIO and using good services for too long now it is difficult for user to switch their service.

Even if a 5th standard child has to make his project then he can jse it for free and gives his best.

Till now, no other company has thought of giving any kind of free service to its customers and never thought of contributing in a country like India. So reliance jjio has made it possible and now over 90% of the population is using their services free of cost and free of pressure of that large bills. Hence this kind of service would definitely be a sustainable business model in a country like India.

Until 31st March, Jio could be sustainable. Thereafter when the charges would be implemented we need to think on two points:

1. What would be the charges?

2. What percent of population would be willing to pay?

Now considering the second part first let's say they provide services at a very minimal cost, then too the users would have to then pay atleast an amount for the same services they were using free of cost and then there will also be other companies like AIRTEL VODAFONE etc which have already lowered their data and call charges would also compete hence the population would be divided, not that there would be no user of JIO but ot upto the great number as we can find today.

Coming to the first part we need to first think what amount they would be charging the users?

Anyhow according to me many poor people are using JIO as its free of cost now, since they would have to pay something you can just margin them out of the user list. Now in India, where majority of population belongs to middle class, the frequency of the recharges done by them varies, around 85.55% people users recharge per month, now the frequency of recharges would decline as the addiction of jio decreases in a long run after being it 4-5 times per month at the starting.

I don't think it would be a sustainable model if the data and call rates are kept very high in a long run.

JIO means live, the name it self says, what a common man wants. Reliance Jio has become a trend as it is free and provides high speed. While reading above opinions, someone said it's a "strategy", I ask, why not? why think of future? Live for today. Other companies also have strategies, but they never thought of providing free high-speed internet to the people, but Reliance JIO did. Analysis says JIO has been used by almost 70-80% of Indian population. Also, those who don't have 4G compatible phones, JIO came up with wifi dongles, another option. People especially students like us, who are the future of India, are getting benefited, aren't we? Yes, Reliance JIO is a sustainable business model in the developing country like India!

In my view, Jio will be sustainable business model in a developing country like India since there are lot of advantages with Jio-like free data upto 31st March, free calls etc. Jio also has been encouraging cashless transactions, for example, if you want to recharge your balance you can go to MyJio application available in the play store and through debit or credit card you can recharge your phone balance instead of going to the shop. Frankly speaking compared to other telecom operators Jio is also offering quality call services and high data speed at free of cost.

From the above, it can be concluded that Reliance Jio is a sustainable business model in a developing country like India.

Yes, Jio is trying to make habit to use internet with high speed. They trying to addict people on Internet after using free trial of Jio, people who addicted to Internet they will gonna purchase high-cost plan that will beneficial for Reliance Company.

[Free Trial till 31 March]

Jio data usage per day restriction = 4 GB.

[After 31 March]

Jio Plans = 4 GB data plan -> 250 Rs.

It's marketing strategy.

Although Reliance JIO is boon for people, it has some blind spots too. The model can not be implemented fully especially in rural areas as in country like India, there are still problems of Connectivity, Network, Speed of data etc. People having JIO sim are facing these problems at many places and it would take approx 5 years to fully furnish, so here the JIO technology fails n hence Digital India project too.

Also, every middle-class person does not have 4G smartphone. So here too JIO model fails. People would have to purchase a 4G phone, then only he/she would be able to operate JIO sim.

Yes, with the advent of JIO, nowadays every person with a 4G phone is using the internet. This can be seen with the exponential rise in the number of users in just 2-3 months. Other network companies have suffered badly because of it. This business model is sustainable as.

1. It is cheap.

2. It has a lot of other apps associated with it like JIO movies, JIO TV, etc.

3. Due to 4G, the net has good speed.

4. It has free voice calls and free messaging.

5. It promotes digital India scheme.

6. It is user-friendly due to the MyJio app.

7. The sim is free and is activated in a few hours for new users.

These are some of the factors which favor the JIO business model in India. As majority of India's population is middle class, people need cheap, reliable, user-friendly and sustainable technology which is provided by JIO. According to me, JIO will be a success in India.

Yes, I believe reliance JIO would definitely emerge as a sustainable business model.

1) with its advent, India faced a digital revolution.

2) people used to complain about existing infra, but with JIO atleast the digital infra is certainly going to grow up.

3) the Digital India dream of our PM would not have picked up pace unless for such a company.

4) India needs business model like JIO who can keep aside profit making agenda and without any political stunt contribute to wellbeing of society to some extent.

5) 60% villages have been laid with optical fibers after its advent. So India needs such favorable model for her constant upliftment.

It is very costly to the common man to afford the data charges. But now it is JIO's time. Everybody who have 4G mobiles are using this JIO sim. Mr. AMBANI is the trend setter. I'm one of the users of JIO I can surely say with out that my education will be incomplete. Because we are in the final year of B-Tech and we are in search of projects. If data is not available then it is very horrible to think. It is giving a very tight competition to the other business. Now Airtel, Vodafone are inventing new techniques like data@29/mnth. Now just think how much they received up to now.

No wonder that Jio brings a lot of advantages and offers which no other service provider could deliver before, as there is no data charges upto march. So all users are happily using huge amount of data, without thinking about data charges, and they are getting addicted to using internet freely, but after March, some data charges are going to be applied and then it may become costly for users but as they are used to with using huge amount of data. They will try to recharge anyhow and that is I think will be troublesome for some people.

Yes, I Think they have made quite an impact after introducing Welcome offers free of cost for all and they have achieved around 500 million subscribers which itself says it all. Competitors of Jio are just trying to make up with them. The thing is competitors didn't have the guts to bring such an offer and kudos to Mukesh Ambani for bringing such an idea and it will only get better as the years go by.
