The Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries (RIL), Mukesh Ambani, revealed plans to get Reliance Jio to help transform the state of Uttar Pradesh into a “Digital Devbhoomi”, from the “Devbhoomi Uttarakhand” that it is at the moment. The company has invested more than Rs. 4,000 crore in the state, and aims to provide high-speed internet connections to the majority of the schools and colleges, of which there are currently 2,385, within a two years. As he himself put it, “All this will help create additional employment and earning opportunities for the people of Uttarakhand. We plan to connect most of the 2,185 government schools and 200-plus government colleges in the state within next two years.”


Ambani has promised the state that his company will foster protection of its natural beauty by encouraging sustainable tourism, improving the delivery of essential services such as healthcare, education and other public services, and will actively seek to encourage the growth of environmentally-friendly businesses in the state. Ambani added to his earlier statement focusing on education by saying, “At Jio, we are committed to a Digital Uttarakhand where each of its citizens can have the best quality digital connectivity and digital services. The state government’s pro-business policies combined with Jio’s investment will surely open up new avenues for growth of hi-tech industries in the state. For all of us at Reliance, Uttarakhand is an attractive investment opportunity. At Reliance Industries, we are very satisfied with the environment in the state and the support that we have received and I thank the state government for all their support.”
