Reliance Industries is the largest private-sector company in India. It is involved in the oil refining, petrochemical, gas, retail and textile businesses and boasts consolidated sales of more than $60 billion. It is a core unit of Reliance Group, which ranks alongside Tata and Birla among the country's major conglomerates.
Reliance Group was founded by Dhirubhai Ambani, who went into business in the 1950s. The company expanded into textiles in the 1960s and entered the petrochemical sector in the 1980s, amassing a fortune for Ambani.
After Ambani died in 2002, his sons Mukesh, the eldest, and Anil had a row over corporate policy. The group was divided in 2005 as Mukesh took over the petrochemical and textile operations while Anil took charge of the financial and telecommunications segments. Mukesh leads Reliance Industries as chairman and expanded its operations by pushing into retail and telecommunications services.
The Ambani family's roots lie in India's western state of Gujarat. After Narendra Modi, who served as chief minister of Gujarat for a long period, took power as the country's prime minister in May 2014, Mukesh quickly pledged 1.8 trillion rupees worth of capital investment over three years.
Mukesh, his family and group companies own nearly 40% in Reliance Industries. The chairman holds an MBA from Stanford University in the U.S. and is one of India's wealthiest individuals.
