Back on September 5, after much hype, Mukesh Ambani, Reliance Industries Chairman, unveiled Reliance Jio. Ambani when talking about the launch, emphasized the global digital revolution boom, saying that everything digital would have exponential growth. Ambani said that Jio service was established based on 5 key pillars. Its aim is to provide users with a strong network and a magical experience at an affordable price.

In order to get a Jio SIM card, customers need to submit their KYC documents. After receiving their SIM card, customers then have to download the MyJio app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. In the app, click on the “Get Jio SIM” banner and complete the process. Once they are done, they need to click on the “Next” button. The display screen will show an offer code from Reliance, which should be noted down. Customers need to prepare all the required documents to complete the KYC norms and visit a Reliance store to get the Jio SIM.

After purchasing the SIM, in order to be able to use it, customers will have to activate it.

  • Call 1977 using your SIM to enable voice and data.
  • Call 1800-890-1977 using your SIM if you only want data services.
  • In the voice call, you may be asked about your Reliance Jio number. This can be found on your SIM pack.
  • Next, you have to tell the Reliance Jio staff the last 4 digits in your ID document. Normally, it would be an Adhaar card or a Voter ID card.
  • If at that time, your SIM has already been activated, the tele-verification process is completed.
  • But if you haven’t activated your SIM yet, it might take around 4 hours after submitting an application for your SIM to be activated.

You might be asked questions related to the details in your receipt, so be sure to place that in front of you before calling the customer care service.

Activation time for Reliance Jio SIM

A Jio SIM normally takes 4 hours only to be activated. However, it some cases, due to the huge demand, the process would take up to 20 days. Here are activation time details in different cities.

  • Mumbai: 5 minutes to 15 minutes.
  • Delhi: 5 minutes to 15 minutes.
  • Bangalore: 5 minutes to 15 minutes.
  • Hyderabad: 15 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Other major cities: 15 minutes to 4 hours.

Because Jio stores in Mumbai and Delhi have an e-KYC facility, customers need to submit their biometrics like their fingerprint or retina scan. So if you live in the area, it is best to activate your SIM through this way.

If there are too many customers in the store, you will have to fill in a form and wait for your turn. Since every application is completed manually, there might be some delays.

How to decrease activation time

  • In major cities, always prioritize the e-KYC activation method as it only takes 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Visit the Jio Store in the early morning or right after a lunch break, so you won’t have to wait too long.
  • After you receive the SIM card, ask the staff for tele-verification message.
  • After you are done with the tele-verification process, wait for 2 hours. After that, if your SIM isn’t activated, visit the Jio store.
