Jio users can now set standing instructions for auto-debit for their tariff plans through UPI after a tie-up between the telecom player and NPCI. National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) and Jio in a joint announcement on Thursday said UPI Autopay has now been introduced for the telecom industry with Jio.

This will enable Jio customers to set standing instructions on the MyJio App, using UPI Autopay for their favourite tariff plans and hassle-free recharging experience. Jio’s integration with UPI Autopay has made it the first player in the telecom industry to go live with the unique e-mandate feature that was launched by NPCI, the entities said in a release.

“We believe our collaboration will change the way Jio customers experience the renewal of their mobile tariff plans. With UPI Autopay, it’s our constant endeavour at NPCI to provide an extra layer of comfort and convenience to all the customers for their recurring spends and payments,”

Kunal Kalawatia, Chief of Products, NPCI said.

For recharge amounts up to Rs 5,000, customers do not even have to enter the UPI PIN on the execution of the recharge, the release said, adding users can also create, modify as well as remove the e-mandate for the tariff plans as per their requirements through UPI Autopay. Jio users will no longer need to remember their recharge renewal date or bill payment date and perform manual, Kiran Thomas, Director, Jio, said.

One thing to consider here is that this E-mandate will only be beneficial for those who recharge on a monthly basis and find it difficult to keep a track of plan expiry dates. Though for those who recharge with quarterly plans and choose to queue them up in the MyJio app, this will not provide any considerable convenience. Also one must keep in mind that with manual recharges one can avail of ongoing cashback offers on various wallets and e-commerce platforms which will not be available through this Autopay.
