Since its launch, there are a lot of positive and negative opinions circulating on the internet & media about Reliance Jio.
While enjoying FREE benefits, on the other hand, people started to suspect, doubt, fear about the services they are already getting. It is normal human psychology. We hardly trust anything. Here I’ll explain the reasons behind negative publicity happening against Reliance Jio.
Lot of confusion
The main reason for trusting and re-circulating negative publicity is the confusion accumulated about the Reliance Jio SIM in the mobile user’s minds. Most of the people don’t have clarity on Reliance Jio SIMs. Moreover, few illiterates creating baseless logics and circulating rumors through Whatsapp, etc. I already discussed few of them earlier. Media also have least technical knowledge on Telecom.
Aggression on Reliance
Usually, people hate capitalistic firms, and Reliance is one among them. People think Reliance is exploiting the industry but contrary the same people exploit the corporates if they started offering free services. Here we have to remember that everything is a business. Till now Airtel, Idea, Vodafone maintained the monopoly in the telecom industry. Nobody has dared to question them.
Whatever the company first ordinary consumer has to remember that they are not here to do service & they are doing business, they have their own strategies, plans. So Reliance is not an exception for that. So blindly having hate feeling on a particular corporate is only our psychological disorder.
Innocence about telecom industry
Since 2004 I’m looking for Indian telecom operators who bring VoIP to their platform. After a decade also my expectations failed. It might not be VoIP, but now Reliance came up with Data-centric plans, and the voice calls are completely free. In some European countries, VoIP calls are free since ten years. Who is responsible for the backward nature of the Indian telecom industry? Customers don’t have knowledge; media also lacks the knowledge. They always create sensation & insecure feelings in the people.
Social media also polluted. Nobody shares eye-opening articles like this, people only share rumors, false news. So the negative psychology we have, the innocence we carry for decades created more confusions.
Bad propaganda from competitors
The rival companies created a lot of negative publicity against Reliance Jio. All of sudden, they are not in a situation to upgrade their networks, but at any cost, they must stop users from migrating to Reliance. So they started negative propaganda.
Why I’m supporting Reliance Jio is because of the momentum it created in the Indian telecom industry. If Reliance Jio does not entered into the market, we might be adjusted with the existing telecom companies for another two to three decades.
Finally, if you don’t trust Reliance keep away from the company, but while enjoying the free benefits or while expecting for the free benefits, blaming the same company with innocence is a big mistake.
