In signs of succession planning at Indias largest private firm, billionaire Mukesh Ambanis twin scions Isha and Akash were on Saturday appointed as directors on board of Reliance Industries' telecom and retail ventures, reports PTI. Isha and Akash, 23, were appointed to the boards of Reliance Jio Infocomm and Reliance Retail Ventures, the company said in a statement.

Ambani, the worlds richest energy billionaire, has three children Isha, Akash and Anant. While Isha and Akash are twins, youngest sibling Anant is pursuing studies in the US.

Isha, who graduated from the Yale University with majors in psychology and South Asian studies in 2013, worked with global consultancy firm McKinsey in US briefly. Akash, who graduated from Brown University with major in economics, had been working closely with Ambani family confidant Manoj Modi on RILs 4G telecom venture. The two are joining around the same age as their father Mukesh, who was 24 years old when he joined RIL in 1981.
