Demonetization In India : How It Effected Jio And Other Telecom Operators


What is Demonetization in India?

To prevent black money, Indian Government took one of the great moves to change old Rs.500 and Rs.1000 notes with Rs.2000 note. And new Rs.500 note will be available soon. And this has affected everyone in India including the rich ones. That’s so strange. But yes, it affected everyone.

Lack of Rs.10,20,100 isn’t a small issue at all. Even ATMs don’t have change. Most of them aren’t open.


How it affected Telecom Companies?

People don’t want to waste money (change) on unwanted things or they need money for things with more priority. More than 8/10 of people use Prepaid connections. And what will happen if we don’t recharge and reduce calls that aren’t necessary?

So, less recharges led to less revenue of Telecom Companies. Most of the companies reported that it affected them but not as big as we think, still, if this situation continues, it won’t be easy for them too.

What about Reliance Jio?

Well, it’s free from all these things. No demonetization affected Jio since it’s Free to use and they are not expecting any revenue from it now. And the interesting thing is, Jio is offering Home Delivery now.
