In the past also to take on its rival, Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel launched a plan which included unlimited voice calls.  In December, 2016, it again unveiled a new broadband plan for fixed-line users along with free calls in Mumbai.

After Reliance Jio launched its welcome offer, later turned into Happy New Year offer, the battle between the telecom service providers is getting uglier. Reliance Jio announced free voice calls and free national roaming along with rock-bottom data prices on the new Reliance Jio network.

E-commerce firm Snapdeal has also tied up with Reliance Jio to provide home delivery of SIM cards as part of the telecom's Happy New Year Offer.

To avail this offer, the customer needs to register their contact details and address of delivery on Snapdeal's website.
Snapdeal will then choose their 'premium customers' to whom they will extend this offer.
