Reliance Jio is planning to invest Rs. 10,000 crore more in West Bengal after having already invested Rs. 28,000 crore in the state.
Speaking at Bengal Global Business Summit, Mukesh D. Ambani, CMD, Reliance Industries said, “our endeavour to cover 100% of the state’s population with our Jio network is progressing at a fast pace. We hope to achieve this within the current year 2019.”
Jio’s gigafiber project of connecting Bengal with optic fibre to every home has progressed well and will transform every home in Bengal into a smart home.
Reliance Retail operates over 500 retail stores and 46 petro retail outlets spanning nearly 1 million square feet across 400 cities and towns of West Bengal. To help rapid adoption of the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Reliance Jio has rolled out a world class infrastructure with bouquet of affordable services, in this state and all over India. The government is also setting up state-of-the-art Data Centre project in Kolkata.
Jio and Reliance Retail will shortly launch a unique New Commerce platform, which will bring win-win benefits to consumers, retailers and producers. Across the country, this platform will enrich and empower as many as 3 crore small shopkeepers.
