This is the first time that Reliance Jio, a new entrant in the telecom space that has disrupted the industry with its free voice and low data prices, announced earnings since starting operations in September a year ago.

Ahead of the results, RIL closed 0.4 percent higher at Rs 876.70.

The benefits include Jio Prime membership worth Rs 99, Rs 399 data plan which gives data and free voice for 84 days and 5GB data each month on a minimum recharge of Rs 149, for nine months worth a total of Rs 1,809. However, RIL's GRM outperformed benchmark Singapore's complex margins by $3.7 per barrel. Jio's parent RIL, reported strong earnings from refining and petrochemicals businesses, which more than offset the telecom subsidiary's loss.

"Exports from the refining and petrochemical operations during the second quarter at Rs 41,560 crore were higher by 10.2 per cent, as against Rs 37,717 crore exported in the same quarter of previous year, due to higher volumes and product prices", the company said.

The company also revealed operating results from the quarter, including the fact that it generated Rs 156 per subscriber per month during the three months from July to September.

Consolidated total income of the company climbed 15.89 per cent Rs97,402 crore in Q2 compared to Rs84,044 crore in the similar quarter of the previous fiscal.

The retail business continued to do well with revenues rising almost 82 percent over the year earlier to Rs 14,646 crore and Ebit doubled to Rs 334 crore.

The sharp increase in revenue from the petrochemicals segment was due to higher volumes in the polyester chain and firm prices. "Sustained demand growth coupled with supply disruptions further tightened demand supply balances globally during the quarter".
