Abu Dhabi-based sovereign investor Mubadala Investment Company is in discussions to invest in Reliance Industries’ digital unit Jio Platforms, a source said. Last week, Reliance Industries had announced sale of a 2.32 per cent stake in its digital unit to the US-based private equity giant KKR for Rs 11,367 crore, the fifth marquee deal over the past few weeks that will inject a combined Rs 78,562 crore in the oil-to-telecom conglomerate to help it pare debt.
