Reliance Jio offers are surely attracting a lot of people and that’s the reason all the Reliance Jio stores are witnessing long queues outside their shops.

This process started from the 5th of September and a lot of people have opted for this option since then.

Mobile Number Portability service of Jio
From 5th September Jio is offering the Mobile Number Portability or MNP options to the customers of Airtel, Idea, Vodafone, BSNL, Aircel, Docomo, and others, so that they can shift to Reliance Jio network service without changing their mobile numbers. With this option the customers of other mobile network can easily change to Jio network and not even change their existing number.
This portability service can be provided by any mobile network company only after they have got the LRN which is like a license that allows a company for the MNP service. So Jio has also obtained this license so customers from any India based mobile network company can port to Reliance Jio.
