Reliance Industries (RIL) will start commercial operations of its much-awaited telecom services in December, offering a 4G smartphone for as low as Rs 4,000 and a monthly bill of Rs 300-500, its Chairman Mukesh Ambani said today.
Unveiling a road map to propel the oil refining-to-retail major to a select group of most valuable companies in the world, Ambani told shareholders that RIL will complete over Rs 2 lakh crore of projects in core oil and petrochemical businesses as well as new ventures like telecom in the next 12-18 months to add capacity.
Reliance Jio Infocomm, the firm’s telecom arm, is testing network with a ‘beta launch’ due over the next few months and commercial operations around December.
Looking to tap the surging voice and data demand, Ambani said the 4G-enabled smartphone in India will be priced below Rs 4,000 by December.
