He explained that the initiative will take forward the flagship Jio Movement using the new strategy to get a New India and New Maharashtra by simply setting up the country’s first-ever ‘Integrated Industrial Development Area’ in the state over the next 10 years.
“The corporation will create Maharashtra that the birthplace and cradle of the Industrial Revolution in India, and it is a convergence of disruptive technologies in the physical, biological and digital spheres. It will change the world and our society in unthinkable ways,” Ambani said in his address at the ‘Magnetic Maharashtra: Convergence 2018’ inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“India can’t afford to lag behind in this race and really has a chance to be a global leader,” he explained.
The Industrial Revolution will help Maharashtra and India solve the most troublesome issues in socio-economic development in health-care and education, water security and environmental security, fostering agriculture production, in creating all of our cities, cities and villages SMART, and generate millions of new employment opportunities for the youth of their state and in India.
Ambani explained Mumbai since the ‘janmabhoomi’ (birthplace) of Reliance along with his very own ‘karmabhoomi’ (workplace) where the startup business was established by his father, the late visionary Dhirubhai Ambani with a seed funding of just Rs 1,000 and a single worker.
“Now, Reliance employs over 350,000 people… it’s the largest ‘wealth-creator for India’. Reliance always invests in India’s Big Dreams in construction companies of their future with Indian talent and Indian childhood,” he said.
He explained Mumbai is also home to Jio, the most recent tech-startup in the Reliance family, and if the Prime Minister unveiled his vision for a Digital India, in addition, it became Jio’s personal assignment.
“Before Jio’s launch, India was 155th from the world in mobile broadband consumption. Today India isn’t any 1. More than 170 million Indians enjoy the maximum quality services at the lowest prices on the planet,” he said.
So far, the company has invested Rs 250,000 crore in India, where the maximum talk — Rs 22,000 crore — arrived to Maharashtra, and within a couple of years, Jio will connect every village panchayat, each school, hospital, and college in the state to deliver the advantages of digital revolution to the last individual in society, he explained.
