Jio engineers in Uttarakhand are working hard in the adverse weather and tough geographies of the state to promptly deliver True 5G to every citizen, because of the transformational power of this technology and the exponential benefits it can deliver.”
Honorable Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, Shri Pushkar Singh Dhami, said in a message, “Reliance Jio has started its 5G services in Chardham Temple premises of Uttarakhand. I congratulate and thank Jio for bringing in transformational changes in the digital landscape of the state and commencing 5G services right at the beginning of yatra. This facility will allow millions of pilgrims to take advantage of a highspeed data network. With the successful 5G launch in Chardham, Jio has lived up to its commitment to provide 5G services not only in the main towns but also to the religiously important places of the state. Also, with the help of Jio’s strong data network, during Chardham Yatra, disaster management, surveillance and monitoring of yatra can be done on a real time basis.
I once again thank Jio, which is providing digital services to the people of the state by working rapidly even in the difficult geographical structure of the state.”
