Visitors to the Kumbh will have access to services likes family locators and telecast of special events.
JioPhone, the 4G feature phone, has introduced a new service for those heading to the Kumbh mela, which include end-to-end information services about the event, real-time travel information, emergency helplines, and area routes, amongst others.
“Kumbh is the largest human congregation in the world, with over 130 mill pilgrims taking a holy dip over 55 days. During this Kumbh, JioPhone is introducing a digital solution that will enrich the spiritual experience of millions of pilgrims during the divine holy dip,” Reliance Jio Infocomm said in a statement on Monday .
The latest offering also includes family locators and telecast of special events during the congregation. Visitors to the Kumbh will have access to these services over and above the other offerings that the Jio phone offers to its customers.
“JioPhone is at the centre of innovation and the Kumbh JioPhone initiative continues to demonstrate our focus on bringing disproportionate and true value for the JioPhone consumers,” said a spokesperson at Jio.
The telecom company said that the Kumbh functionality will be available to both existing and new users. Reliance Retail, a sister company of Jio which offers the JioPhone, has even created a special helpline number to answer queries on the device, said the operator.
