The one-time subscription charges of Rs. 99 is for enrolling yourself into the JioPrime membership scheme, and that should be done before March 31, 2017. If an existing Jio users fail to join in the JioPrime membership scheme, then he can avail the regular non-JioPrime plans to continue using the services.
