Indore/Bhopal: Reliance Jio announced the launch of its 5G services in Indore and Bhopal just a week ahead of the big-ticket 17th Pravasi Bharatiya Diwas (PBD) conference and Global Investor Summit (GIS-2023) scheduled in the city next month.
The PBD is scheduled from January 8 to 10 while the GIS will be held on January 11 and 12.
