Reliance Jio to Work on Projects of National Interest

Reliance-JioReliance Jio, a wholly owned subsidiary of Reliance Industries, is working around various projects of national interest. It is amply known that the company is readying for its 4G services roll out but the company on Friday said that it is also working to address the entire value chain across various digital services.

“In addition to fixed and wireless broadband connectivity, RJIL also plans to enable end-to-end solutions that address the entire value chain across various digital services in key domains of national interest,” the company said in a statement while announcing its Q3 financial results.

The company’s net profit during the quarter dropped 7.7% to Rs5085 crore. The business from its BWA services or 4G services is mentioned in the ‘Other’ category in the report.

These domains, Reliance Jio said, include education, healthcare, security, financial services, government-citizen interfaces and entertainment.

“Reliance Jio aims to comprehensively address the requisite components of the customer need, thereby fundamentally enhancing the opportunity and experience of hundreds of millions of Indian citizens and organisations,” the company added.

It also said that the acquisition of Network 18 will help the company in launching some premier digital services in the domain of telecom, web and digital commerce.

Reliance Jio, the only company to have pan-India license for offering broadband services, is planning to roll out high-speed broadband connectivity as well as plethora of digital applications.

The company said around 100,000 people are working to build this infrastructure. Besides these, Reliance Jio had hired more than 10,000 full time employees and takes the help of around 30,000 more workers from its partners around the globe for this cause.

The company has also completed hiring of the top leadership which means that the projects are at the last leg of its trial and may be launched anytime now.

“Reliance Jio has finalised the key vendor and suppliers partnerships that are required to launch of our services and is making rapid progress in building the critical infrastructure needed to launch its services,” the company said in the statement.

In a recent show of its readiness, Reliance Jio, the Mukesh Ambani owned firm, had deployed its broadband access to offer WiFi during the Vibrant Gujarat event in Gujarat.
