Expanding the bouquet of services on its rapidly growing digital services network, Reliance Jio Infocomm, the 4G broadband wireless services arm of Reliance Industries Ltd, announced a strategic tie-up with cab-hailing platform Uber on Monday.

“As part of the partnership, Jio and Uber will work together and explore various opportunities to progressively enrich and enhance the Digital Life experience of their users through complementary programmes,” a statement issued by both the companies said.

To begin with, JioMoney, Jio’s payment wallet, and Uber announced an agreement on Monday whereby Uber users can use their JioMoney wallet to pay for their Uber rides.

“Jio aims to bring the benefits of evolving digital technologies to every Indian through an entire ecosystem that will allow Indians to live Digital Life to the fullest. JioMoney is an integral part of the Jio ecosystem and is fast emerging as a preferred option for digital transactions due to its ease of use, intuitive interface and growing acceptability,” said Anirban S Mukherjee, business head of JioMoney. “JioMoney’s integration with Uber will power the rapid migration of many more Uber transactions to the digital platform.”
