Why do you want to look at it only from technology and license? Jio is collecting all the data which you have in your phone. I will not be surprised if they even keep you voice data saved. So when you take Jio SIM, they offer you host of services and everything goes through their network. They exactly know who you are, what you do, at what time you wake up, where you go and with whom do you talk..apart from what you do in your browser. They want to become netflix/Hotstar, paytm and many more. And most of it will come either free or at so low price that you will wonder how they make money out of it.
If you think, that they are here to wipe their competition out by doing predatory pricing, it will only be partially correct. They are preparing themself for competing with Google and Microsoft.
If you have any doubt, just monitor "MyJio" app for next 7 days and see all of their background processes.
