I had a jio number disconnected due to no recharge for long time (1 to 1.5 years or more)

But before the disconnection many times i got reminder calls from jio customer care for recharge failing which it may get disconnected.

Do they still make such reminder calls to alternate number ?
Because i have another jio sim which was last recharged in october 2022 and i dont want to loose this number

Keep that number connected to the network.

Make a call to that number every 90 days.

Top up with ₹50

This should be sufficient.

Just to be on a safer side, do a minimum recharge every 4-5 months

@siddudeagarwal did that number have any balance and was it active in a phone?

To avoid disconnection keep your SIM in phone, receive calls time to time at least once in every 3 months. My jio sim was also closed due to I have never used it & never inserted in phone. I am left with two SIM one is primary & the second one is secondary. Both number were ported from airtel & loop mobile & very unique vip number type. To avoid disconnection I always keep my secondary jio SIM in main phone number. I receive calls & sometimes I do recharge once in a year.

Ensure to keep main balance of atleast 20rs and you'll never loose your number.

These messages can be safely ignored at least in case of secondary nos. I keep getting such messages since years. Just make sure to make short OG calls when Vi credits free OG for some days after no recharge for a while. Also maintain balance above Rs 20 although I haven't come across any report of Vi deducting Rs 20 for 30 days  extension. If the no. is important recharge with Rs 99. Also check in Vi app if the highly user specific ofter that gives 28 days Service Validity for Rs 50 topup is available or not? You can recharge from any platform. 

BTW how many days have elapsed since no recharge? 

Edit: The messages sent to me never explicitly mentioned a disconnection date but the usual 90 days of no usage.

I can confirm that Number Retention by deducting Rs 20 is still being followed by Jio. Received a message from Jio to the same effect but the number mentioned was someone else's! 90 days since the last recharge hasn't elapsed in any of my Jio nos. so far. 

Edit: The deduction was for no recharge in my Jio Fiber prepaid connection! I tried to another topup but it failed as recently Jio had barred topup recharges in case of no active pack. At least it's confirmed that Number Retention is applicable to Jio Fiber as well. Good way to keep the connection alive without recharging until Jio UL 5G Trial is continued. Next time I will topup with Rs 100 which will give a lot more leeway. 

Edit2: Jio has spelled it out quite clearly. Link.
