Jio Becomes 1st Telco To Offer UPI Autopay: Automatically Pay Via UPI (How It Works?)
The country’s telecom major, Reliance Jio, has launched autopay facilities for millions of UPI and Jio users, in partnership with the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI).
Hasslefree Recharging Experiance For Users
With this move, the telecom giant has become the first player in its industry to integrate with this unique e-mandate feature.
This newly launched feature would allow Jio customers to set standing instructions on the MyJio app for a hassle-free recharging experience.
This feature will further allow the users to seamlessly enjoy their favorite tariff plans.
By using this UPI autopay service, hundreds of millions of both Jio prepaid and postpaid customers can set up standing instructions on the MyJio App.
This way, they can enjoy their favorite tariff plans and hassle-free auto-recharge and bill payment experiences.
Providing Comfort And Ease Of Use To End Users
Moreover, Jio’s integration with UPI autopay has made it the first player in the telecom industry to go live with the unique e-mandate feature launched by NPCI.
On this occasion, Chief of Products – NPCI, Kunal Kalawatia said, “We are glad to associate with Jio and witness UPI autopay venturing into the ever-evolving telecom sector. We believe our collaboration will change the way Jio customers experience a renewal of their mobile tariff plans. “
Further adding, “With UPI autopay, it’s our constant endeavor at NPCI to provide an extra layer of comfort and convenience to all the customers for their recurring spends and payments. We believe that this integration will drive a favorable customer sentiment about seamless and automated recurring payments.”
A Bright Future For Reliance
In simple words, now Jio users will no longer have to remember their recharge or renewal dates as their chosen plan will be auto-renewed under the UPI autoplay feature as and when their plan’s validity expires.
To manage this, the users can also modify, remove, or create the e-mandates as per their requirements.
For up to Rs 5,000, the executing recharges of the need to enter a UPI pin to validate the transaction has also been done away with.
“The combination of Jio’s superior prepaid and postpaid plans and UPI autopay will now be available to every Jio user. Jio users will no longer need to remember their recharge renewal date or bill payment date and perform manual payments. This will enable an ALWAYS-ON service experience for every Jio prepaid user,” said Kiran Thomas, the Director – Jio.
