As announced via its Twitter handle, Reliance Jio now enables Jio phone number recharges through ATM. This seems like yet another way for users to recharge their Jio numbers during Coronavirus lockdown when recharge shops are closed.
For this, Jio has partnered with leading banks such as State Bank of India, Axis Bank, ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, Citi Bank, DCB Bank, AUF Bank, and Standard Chartered Bank. Jio could be adding more banks for this ability in the future.
