He said that the era of paying for the voice call was ending.

Calling devices as the second pillar of Jio's digital life, Ambani said that the time is near when almost every smartphone sold in India will support 4G LTE. This offer would include unlimited 4G data, Voice calls, SMSes and free access to all the Jio Premium apps.

Mr Ambani said, "Pay for only one service - either voice or data, not both". It is believed that the company's subscriber base has already swelled to 25 million during trials. Reliance Industries' $20-billion telecom juggernaut, Jio, is finally set to roll out. Ambani, India's richest man, didn't say when the company would launch commercial services. Today, the company has covered 18,000 cities and 2 Lakh villages.

Also, Jio Preview offer (Now called Jio Welcome Offer) is now available on all Smartphones of any brand and will be valid till December, 31 completely free of cost.

Ambani, who was interrupted by repeated rounds of applause as he took shareholders through Jio's ambitious rollout plans, free countrywide roaming offering and more, vowed to "transform India from a high-priced data market to one with the lowest data rates anywhere in the world". But even after cutting some of their data tariffs by more than 50 percent, they can't seem to be matching Jio's 1GB data for 75 cents offering.

Under this new tariff plan, one can get unlimited high-speed downloading at night and voice calls throughout the day for Rs 499.

Charges will range from Rs 19 for the occasional data user to Rs 4,999 for heavy users.

While free voice calling sounds great, what's especially interesting is the promise of cheap data. It is ten times affordable than any existing data plans by other private players in the country.

The new tariff plans will come to effect once after users finish three months offer.
