The feature is now only available to select users, however, a wider rollout will likely happen soon. Jio already has a payment wallet service in JioMoney app.

Users will see a UPI option just below the search bar in MyJio app. A virtual payment address (VPA) with UPI handle @jio will be created after the sign-up process is successful. It will require users to enter their mobile number, debit card details and link a bank account number. Users will require these to generate a UPI PIN for authenticating the transactions.

According to the company, Jio is the first telecom operator to offer a mobile wallet with UPI payments, and second among payments bank service providers to offer so.
