How to cancel a Reliance Jio postpaid number?

To cancel a Reliance Postpaid number there is a few steps to follow.

The best way to terminate your Reliance Jio postpaid connection is to call up the customer care.

You can also cancel the connection by visiting a Reliance Jio store and ask them to disconnect your number.

Definitely, they will ask you the reasons for disconnection, and once the request has been accepted, the account should be closed within 7 working days. This method also works in prepaid numbers also,  if you don’t want to wait till 90 days.

If you are decided to discontinue your connection, please make the call before April 1, so no charges are attached to your account.

Just remember one thing, if you are calling the Reliance Jio customer care over the phone, must prepare for a long wait before you can speak to someone who can help you.
