India is in a total lockdown mode and the coronavirus outbreak has changed the way people, companies operate. Big companies are taking several measures and doing their part in easing the troubles of employees and people in general. Reliance Industries is one of them and has announced several measures for its employees, general public and its customers.
The Mukesh Ambani-led conglomerate issued a statement where it said that all employees who are earning below Rs 30,000 per month will be paid twice a month. “For those earning below ₹ 30,000 per month, salaries will be paid twice a month to protect their cashflow and mitigate any overwhelming financial burden,” said the company in a statement.
The company further said in the statement, “”RIL has deployed the combined strengths of Reliance Foundation, Reliance Retail, Jio, Reliance Life Sciences, Reliance Industries, and all the 6,00,000 members of the Reliance Family on this action plan against COVID-19.”
In the statement, the company also said that it is imperative in these times for the people of India to remain connected with friends, families, colleagues, businesses, and communities while maintaining social distance. Most of its employees have moved to Work-From-Home platform except for those who are manning critical roles in maintaining the Jio network for nearly 40 crore customers.
As far as Reliance Jio is concerned, the company said that Jio “will provide Basic JioFiber broadband connectivity (10 Mbps), wherever it is geographically feasible, without any service charges, for this period. Jio will also provide home gateway routers with a minimum refundable deposit.”
Further, for all existing JioFiber subscribers, Jio will provide double data across all plans. It will also bundle non-Jio voice calling minutes in these vouchers at no additional cost, to meet the increased need of these services.
