"We are delighted to partner with Jio. All areas of cooperation are mutually beneficial, enhancing the digital the footprint for SBI customers," SBI chairman Rajnish Kumar said in a joint statement. Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani joined him saying, "the scale of SBI's customer base is unmatched.

Jio is committed to using its network combined with the retail ecosystem to accelerate digital adoption serving all needs of customers of SBI and Jio."

Jio and SBI customers will benefit from Jio Prime, a consumer engagement and commerce platform from Reliance, which will offer exclusive deals from Reliance Retail, Jio, partner brands and merchants.

In addition, with an integration between SBI Rewardz (SBI's loyalty programme) and Jio Prime, SBI customers will be offered additional loyalty reward earning opportunities as well as broader redemption within Reliance, Jio and other online and physical partner ecosystems.
