RIL Crosses 7 lakh crore market capitalization – Know its Success Story

July 18, 2018

On 13th July 2018, the stock of Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries Limited (RIL)crossed the 7 lakh crore market capitalization. This was just a day after the company entered the $100 billion market capitalization club.

Surge in the RIL stock

On Friday, the RIL stock reached an all-time high of 1107.25 level, thereby taking the market valuation of the company to INR 7,01,404 crore on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). In India, after Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), RIL has become the second company to achieve this feat.

Past achievements

It was in October 2007 that RIL’s market capitalization had reached this milestone. During this time, the value of rupee was 39.5 against dollar.

According to the Chairman of RIL, Mr. Mukesh Ambani, setting up a strong foundation in every growth phase, thereafter, changing the rules of the game, and finally, changing the entire game is the simple mantra of RIL. And with the launch of the telecom giant Reliance Jio, it is proven that this mantra has aided the company to gain INR 6,88,766 crore valuation.


Mukesh Ambani further added that RIL is well-known for making disruptive and paradigm changes in the market. Its investment in Reliance Jio is a testimony to the disruption that India’s telecom sector has witnessed in the last two years.

Growth of Reliance

In 1957, Dhirubhai Ambani planned to start a yarn trading business in India. It all began in a small office in Masjid Bunder, Mumbai. Dhirubhai Ambani with his cousin started his first company named Reliance Commercial Corporation, which was into a polyester business. In 1965, their partnership ended but Dhirubhai Ambaniwent ahead to continue business.

Founded in 1966 at Naroda, Gujarat, Vimal was the first brand from Reliance, which became a household name.

In 1977, to raise capital, the IPO of Reliance Textile Industries was issued. It created a remarkable history in the equity sector of the country as it was oversubscribed seven times.

In 1982, the elder son of Dhirubhai Ambani, Mukesh Ambani lead the company’s first mega manufacturing project at Patalganga. While in 1983, the younger son Anil Ambani joined the business.

Reliance Textiles Industries was renamed Reliance Industries Limited in the year 1985. In 1991, the company’s Hazira plant laid the foundation for RIL becoming the world’s largest integrated producer of polyester.

Thereafter, the huge Rs 25,000-crore refinery was set up in Jamnagar, Gujarat. In the year 2000, RIL established the largest refinery of the world in Jamnagar within a span of 36 months.

After the demise of Dhirubhai Ambani in 2002, Mukesh Ambani became the Chairman and Managing Director (MD) of RIL and Anil Ambani became the Vice-chairman. At that time, the market capitalization of RIL was INR 28,598.97 crore.

In 2008, RIL commenced the production of crude oil followed by natural gas in 2009. In 2002, RIL entered the infocomm business.

In 2004, RIL became the first private organization in India to be listed in the Fortune Global 500 list.

However, due to the feud between Mukesh and Anil Ambani, the family decided to split the Reliance Group.

In 2006, Mukesh Ambani took control of RIL, including businesses like oil and natural gas, petrochemicals, textiles, and refining. He also entered the retail business by launching Reliance Retail.

On the other hand, the Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group took over power, telecom, financial services, and entertainment.

Launch of Reliance Jio and JioPhone

In 2016, Mukesh Ambani announced the launch of RIL’s telecom arm Reliance Jio, which disrupted the mobile data tariffs in India.

In 2017, Reliance Jio garnered 100 million subscribers in just 170 days after its launch. Owing to the success of Reliance Jio, Mukesh Ambani launched JioPhone in the same year.

The present scenario

This year, RIL along with its joint venture partners Niko Resources and BP Plc invested a whooping INR 40,000 crore in oil and gas exploration and production.

Reliance Jio’s customer base increased to 215 million. Moreover, Mukesh Ambani announced the launch of a new commerce platform and the broadband network called JioGigaFiber.


Reliance Industries Limited crossed the 7 lakh crore market capitalization in just a day after entering the $100 billion market capitalization club.


RIL to Increase Its Focus on Oil-to-Chemicals Conversion

July 11, 2018

While addressing a huge number of shareholders and media personnel at the 41st Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), the Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), Mukesh Ambani, stated that as the world has been migrating from fossil fuel to renewable energy, RIL would continue to maximize its oil-to-chemicals conversion. Ambani added that RIL would do an upgradation of all its fuels to high-value petrochemicals. He stated that this upgradation process would be implemented over the next decade, in a phased manner, with the objective to meet the rising demand of petrochemcials in India.

Details of the DTA gasification project in Jamnagar, Gujarat

Mukesh Ambani was quite positive while speaking about the DTA gasification project in Jamnagar, Gujarat. While speaking about this project, which involved complex start-up and stabilization, Ambani stated the project has been completed in less than 120 days in contrast to the usually required period of 9-12 months for a project of this immensity and complexity. He stated that the DTA gasification project would eradicate the dependency of the refinery on natural gas, which is imported. RIL has made an investment of USD 4.6 billion, in order to transform the captive petcoke into synthetic gas. This synthetic gas can be used for the generation of power of steam, hydrogen, and power, as a replacement to costly and imported Liquified Natural Gas (LNG). An analyst stated that this would play a pivotal role in restarting gas-based power plants, as these power plants have been stranded in the last few years due to the shortage of fuel. The analyst also stated that there is never an issue when it comes to the demand for gas.

Deployment of advanced technologies at the KG D6 block

RIL has a joint venture with BP, a leading energy company based in the UK. In connection with this joint venture, RIL stated that it would further deploy progressive technologies at the KG D6 block. The gas production is expected to commence in 2020 and the full production is set to reach around 30 to 35 million metric standard cubic meters, on a daily basis by 2022. Moreover, the organization is looking to source and distribute gas to consumers across India, which also include those in cities.

Details of the coal-bed methane production

While speaking about the coal-bed methane production RIL stated that the same has exceeded 1 million metric standard cubic meters per day and the next phase of development has begun with an ambition to double the ongoing production.

Integration of the US gas resources with the Indian sector

The management of RIL is proposing a cross-border association of RIL and Reliance Holding USA. This initiative is to integrate the gas resources of the US with the Indian market. The company has also done the same with ethane for petrochemcials.

Reliance Jio Broadband – Calls, Videos, and 100 Mbps Broadband at Under INR 1,000 Per Month

May 30, 2018

Reliance Jio, the telecom division of the Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) is set to offer voice calls, videos, and internet access with a speed 100 Mbps at less than INR 1,000 a month, with Reliance Jio Broadband, its latest offering, which would be launched by the end of 2018.

Confirmation of Reliance Jio’s bundled offer

This news was confirmed by a person, who is aware of this development, on the condition of anonymity. The person stated that talks are on about a bundled tariff and the recent discussions indicate that the bundled tariffs would be below a price of INR 1,000 per month. The person also stated that Reliance Jio Broadband would also comprise JioTV and non-stop calling with the help of a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone.

Commencement of testing fiber-to-home services

With the objective to enter in the wired internet segment at the end of 2018 with Reliance Jio Broadband, Reliance Jio has started testing its fiber-to-home services in a few cities, which include Mumbai and New Delhi. As a part of wired broadband testing, Reliance Jio is offering free broadband with internet at a speed of 100 Mbps at a security deposit of INR 4,500.

Views of key people about bundled offerings

Amresh Nandan, the Vice-President (Research) of Gartner stated that although the concept of bundled offerings is quite popular in a few western nations, this idea has been unsuccessful without a strong content play. Nandan stated Reliance Jio has focused a lot on its content strategy and this would be helpful for it as it offers a bundled package, which includes broadband internet, fixed line, mobile, and media. He concluded by stating that this concept will help in customer retention.

Mahesh Uppal, the Director of ComFirst India, a communications consulting company, stated that providing customers with a bundled offering is a sensible move for any telecom company. Uppal added that the rules of net neutrality do not permit telecom companies to have a differential pricing when it comes to internet content. He further stated that, hence, by providing supplementary services such as DTH TV, telecom companies could merge carriage with content and get flexibility in pricing, without going against the net neutrality rules. He concluded that this is the ideal way, in which telecom entities can retain customers.

JioTV increases its content offerings

JioTV, the television application (app) of Reliance Jio has expanded its content offerings in the recent past. It has bagged the digital rights for international sporting events such as the Nidhas Trophy T20 cricket series, the final of Carabao Cup (EFL Cup), and the Winter Olympics 2018.

Reliance Jio Plans Expansion in the Overseas Market

May 23, 2018

Reliance Jio the telecom wing of the Mukesh Ambani-controlled Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) is planning to expand its business avenue beyond the Indian market, by setting up a subsidiary company in Estonia.

One of the two people stated that Reliance Industrial Investments and Holdings Limited, RIL’s wholly-owned investment holding subsidiary would provide a loan of INR 12.20 crore, which is equivalent to EUR 1.5 million to Reliance Jio’s Estonian unit. The second person stated that due to its technologically advanced e-solutions, Estonia has emerged as one of the most successful business economies in Europe, over the last decade. He also stated that Indian organizations would positively wish to collaborate and take benefit of e-governance solutions and Reliance Jio is no different in this matter.

Reasons behind starting a subsidiary in Estonia

There are various reasons due to which Reliance Jio is setting up its subsidiary unit in Estonia. First of all, as Estonia has proven to be a strong business in Northern Europe, an organization established in this nation can operate globally, while all the compliance tasks and agreements can be managed online. 99 percent of the public services in Estonia are available online 24X7. In Estonia, all documents are digitally available and all government services are provided online since 2000. Estonia is the first nation to provide ‘e-Residency,’ a digital ID issued by the government, which is available to anyone worldwide. E-Residency provides the freedom to any organization to set up and carry out a global business in the European Union with ease. With a presence in Estonia, Reliance Jio will get an access to the European Union. Lastly, this step comes in line with Estonia’s ambition to build a long-term business relationship with India.

As per an IANS news report dated March 13, 2018, the Managing Director and Chairman of RIL, Mukesh Ambani had a meeting with an Estonian government delegation.

A statement from RIL mentioned that Ambani had the vision to improve the lives of Indians by recreating the innovative solutions provided by Estonia in India. The statement also added that the e-Residency program of Estonia would help him in getting a comfortable access to the European Union.

Reliance Jio’s need for diversification

As per Mahesh Uppal, Director, ComFirst India, a communications consulting company, stated that the key reason of Reliance Jio setting up a subsidiary in Estonia is its need for diversification. Uppal stated that in the highly competitive Indian telecom sector it is sensible on Reliance Jio’s part to diversify.
