Is Jio 4G Voice App Capturing User Contact and Information - Be Careful Before Using

Reliance Jio 4G service launch and usage is attached with application. For the access of any service, User will be bound to download one application which is part of MyJio app or one can also download directly from Google Store.

The most interesting part of this is Jio4GVoice app which is required for non LTE 4G device to access the network to make an outgoing call.

During the registration process, application takes multiple consent from user and user click ok to all as they are excited to get the free call.
I have few queries around that applications 

1. Why App is asking for user consent to read user contacts ? If I am an user than the application should capture my MSISDN instead of asking for user permission to read contact. They are doing the same thing which some of the application providers like Truecaller did. Through that they will develop the user database which they may use and call those users to attract toward their network.

2. Why they are asking for a consent to read SMS? I failed to understand that.

In my point of view, user should be careful before giving those consent as I believe that some of the user never want their contact to be accessed.
