In October, a pilot project was initiated to deliver Reliance Jio 4G SIMs at customer's doorstep in Mumbai. Now, the company has reportedly expanded the home delivery service to in New Delhi on November 16.
It is expected to be rolled out in a few more cities in coming weeks, TechPP reported, citing sources.
International Business Times, India, independently reached out to reliable sources and they have confirmed that the home delivery service is indeed activated in the major cities, including the aforementioned ones and Bengaluru, but not officially.
We believe that people living in Mumbai, Delhi NCR and other select metros will automatically (probably based on IP address) get a pop-up notification with regard to 4G SIM home delivery service while visiting the Reliance Jio website.
Confirmation (10:45 am IST, November 18): Consumers who generated Reliance Jio Free Welcome Offer coupon via MyJio App are receiving SMS from the company to register for Door Step Delivery service. In Bengaluru, it is activated in select areas only.
How to register for Reliance Jio 4G SIM door delivery service

Reliance Jio free welcome offer users are entitled to get free unlimited HD Voice (VoLTE), video calling, unlimited (9,000) SMS, unlimited high-speed data and Jio Apps until December 31.
In a related development, Reliance Jio is planning to launch new DTH service dubbed as the JioTV next month.
