Mukesh Ambani about India Economy

India Will Be A 40 Trill-Dollar Economy By 2047: Mukesh

India will be a USD 40-trillion dollar economy by 2047 and ranked among the top three economies of the world, Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh D Ambani has said and identified Clean Energy Revolution, the Bio-Energy Revolution, and the Digital Revolution as “three game-changing revolutions” that will govern India’s growth in the decades ahead.

Addressing the convocation of Pandit Deendayal Energy University (PDEU) here on Tuesday, Mukesh Ambani said India is poised for an “unprecedented explosion in economic growth and opportunities” during the Amrit Kaal, the 25-year period to 2047 when India will celebrate the centenary of its independence.
He said the three game-changing revolutions will together transform lives in ways unimagined.

“While the Clean Energy Revolution and the Bio-Energy Revolution will produce energy sustainably, the Digital Revolution will enable us to consume energy efficiently. All three revolutions will together help India and the world save our beautiful planet from the Climate Crisis,” he said.

“I am confident that you, the students of PDEU, along with lakhs of other bright young minds from across the nation, will leverage these revolutions to enable India to meet its energy goals,” he added.

Mukesh Ambani, who is President, the Board of Governors of PDEU, said he was excited about the convocation ceremony.

“This batch of PDEU is graduating during a year that marks the beginning of India’s Amrit Kaal. In our tradition, Amrit Kaal is regarded as the most auspicious time to start anything new. And each of you is starting your professional journey in this period. As the Amrit Kaal unfolds, India will witness an unprecedented explosion in economic growth and opportunities,” he said.

“From a 3 trillion-dollar economy, India will grow to become a 40 trillion-dollar economy by 2047, ranking among the top three economies of the world in your working life. In other words, a bright future beckons you. Be ready to step out confidently when opportunity knocks on your door,” he added.

Mukesh Ambani said the university has made the students future-ready because it researches and teaches “energy with a very comprehensive perspective”.

He also had a word of advice for students, saying that in the era of 4G and 5G, there is no ‘G’ greater than “MataG and PitaG”.

“Today is your day. The arc lights are on you. But standing in the wings is your parents and elders… it’s a very special day for them too. They have waited eagerly to see you walk up to the stage and receive your graduation certificate. It has been their lifelong dream,” Mukesh Ambani said.

“Don’t ever forget the struggles they underwent and the sacrifices they made to bring you here. Their contribution to your success is immeasurable. Let me tell you something in your own lingo – the language of the youth. Nowadays, every youngster is excited about 4G and now 5G. But there is no ‘G’ in this world greater than Mata G and Pita G. They were, are, and will always remain your most dependable pillars of strength and support,” he added.

He said PDEU students were “bubbling with energy and enthusiasm”, “brimming with creativity and ideas” and “bristling with entrepreneurial spirit” and were equipped with the knowledge and the skill-set needed to design breakthrough energy solutions for 1.4 billion Indians.

“You have all the necessary ingredients to be the leaders India needs…And as leaders of India’s future, you should ensure our nation leads the global clean and green energy revolution. It is a goal each one of you should pursue in mission mode,” he said.

The leading industrialist shared three mantras with students to help them achieve success in this mission:

“One, Think Big. Be an audacious dreamer. Every great thing ever built in this world was once a dream thought to be impossible. You have to own your dream with courage, nurture it with conviction and realize it with bold and disciplined action. It is the only way you can make the impossible possible.

“Two, Think Green. The Clean Energy movement is about adopting a green mindset. It is about being sensitive to Mother Nature. It is about inventing means to harvest its energy without harming it. It is about ensuring that we leave behind a better and healthier planet for future generations.

“And three, Think Digital. In your mission of making India a clean energy leader, digitisation will play the role of a force multiplier. Technologies such as AI, Robotics, and IoT are powerful enablers of change. Use them to your advantage. These three mantras will be your astras in your mission of making India a global clean energy leader,” he said.

Referring to challenges posed by COVID-19, he said the period “was a trial by fire for each of you….indeed, for all of humanity”

“But remember, the finest sword is forged in raging fire,” he said.

Mukesh Ambani said the experiences in the past couple of years are “invaluable lessons no institution could have taught you”.

“They have shaped you into better professionals. They have made you tougher from within. They have filled you with the spirit of care and empathy.

“And they have taught you the importance of service to humanity with honesty and integrity. With these learnings in your kitty, no mountain will be too high to climb; no river will be too wide to cross. So roll up your sleeves and move ahead,” he said.

Referring to Hasmukh Adhia, Chairman of the Standing Committee of the University, Mukesh Ambani said he is “one of the finest financial minds India has produced”.

“The banking and fiscal reforms he formulated as Finance Secretary have changed the face of our financial system. Under his chairmanship, PDEU has become the first private university in Gujarat to be awarded the A++ grade by NAAC. The credit for this achievement also goes to the excellent faculty and staff of PDEU,” he said.

Referring to Tata Group chairperson N Chandrasekaran, who was the chief guest for the event, Mukesh Ambani said he “is a true inspiration to the business community and the youth of India”.

“Through his vision, conviction, and rich hands-on experience, he has scripted Tata Group’s spectacular growth in recent years. He has also led its forays into the businesses of the future,” he said.

Mukesh Ambani said he is particularly inspired by “the gigantic steps” the group has taken in the field of renewable energy under his leadership.

“If India has to become a renewable energy powerhouse, it is possible through the combined will and initiatives of many leading business groups working with the ethos of a national coalition,” he said. (ANI)

Reliance Jio Formally Launches 5G Services

Reliance Jio 5G is here. As announced two months back, the telecom operator on Saturday has finally launched the new-age high-speed services in the country.

Reliance Jio Chairman Akash Ambani has launched the services in Rajasthan from the famous Shrinathji temple in Rajsamand.
This year, it aims to launch 5G services in major cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Chennai.

The telecom operator intends to expand its 5G network to each and every town, tehsil, and talukas across the country by December of 2023, Reliance chairman Mukesh Ambani said on August 29 while announcing the 5G launch in India.

Earlier this year, Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani resigned from the board of Reliance Jio, thereby handing over reigns to his elder son Akash Ambani.

Meanwhile, Jio will deploy the latest version of 5G called standalone 5G. It is estimated to invest Rs 2 lakh crore in 5G infrastructure.

Launched six years ago, Jio has created multiple world records during its rollout of the largest 4G network in the shortest period of time. Jio’s 4G network provides the highest quality, most affordable digital services to over 400 million loyal and delighted customers. Jio is expected to now raise the bar even further with its 5G services.

Reliance Jio Infocomm has acquired spectrum in 700MHz, 800MHz, 1800MHz, 3300MHz, and 26GHz bands in the recently-concluded 5G auctions conducted by the Department of Telecommunications, where the government received around Rs 1.5 lakh worth of bids. Reliance Jio, Adani group, Bharti Airtel, and Vodafone Idea were the four major participants in the spectrum auction.

Following the spectrum auction, the government issued spectrum allocation letters to telecom service providers in mid-August while asking them to prepare for the rollout of 5G services.

The Department of Telecom and the Ministry of Information Technology have been pushing the mobile phone makers and telecom operators for the updation of 5G-related software in the devices and putting in place the requisite infrastructure for faster rollout of the new-age telecom services.

Tipu Sultan Scared British Then, Now Their Slaves:Owaisi

All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Asaduddin Owaisi slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over the renaming of the train connecting Bengaluru and Mysuru from Tipu Express to Wodeyar Express and said that they can never erase Tipu Sultan’s legacy.

Notably, the Railways has renamed Tipu Express, which plies between Mysuru and Bengaluru, as Wodeyar Express but AIMIM Chief while talking to ANI said that BJP could have started another train to be named after Wodeyar.
“BJP government renamed Tippu Express to Wodeyar Express. Tipu irks BJP just because he waged three wars against its British masters. But, BJP will never be able to erase Tipu’s legacy,” Owaisi tweeted.

Taking a dig at BJP, he said, “Tipu scared the British while alive and scares British slaves even now.”

“If you wanted to name a train after Tipu Sultan, then you should have started another train. Tipu was not one of those royals who sided with the British like some who betrayed the Rani of Jhansi and now their descendants are in ministerial positions,” Owaisi further said.

The AIMIM Chief further tweeted a portrait of Tipu, which he claimed was on the original illustrated copy of the Constitution of India.

Earlier today, Owaisi had claimed that the “dignity” of Muslims in India is lesser than a “streetside dog” while referring to the viral video in which police officials were seen flogging Muslim men publicly earlier this week.

“You could have taken them to the police station. But you chose to rip off their esteem and hit them directly on the streets. In a nation of 133 crores where 30 crores Muslims live, the dignity of a Muslim is lesser than a streetside dog,” he added.

“Every day there is more evidence of mass radicalization. Floggings and mob violence by cops have become common. Targeted violence against Muslims is treated as ‘justice’. This is the reality of Modi’s Vishwaguru/New India/5G/$5 Trillion Ton economy,” Owaisi wrote in a tweet.

He also reacted to RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat’s comments on a comprehensive population policy.

“Don’t fret. The Muslim population is not increasing. It’s rather falling… Who’s using condoms the most? We are. Mohan Bhagwat won’t speak on this,” Owaisi said.

On October 5, the RSS chief inaugurated the annual Dussehra celebrations and stressed the application of the population policy equally to ensure that the rising population do not become a burden but can be used as a resource. (ANI)

Telecom Giants Rally Behind Narendra Modi’s 5G Vision

Bosses of telecom giants—Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, and Vodafone Idea—on Saturday showed solid unity behind Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of revolutionizing the telecom sector through the fifth generation (5G) technology.

Mukesh Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), Sunil Bharti Mittal, Chairman of Bharti Airtel, and Kumar Mangalam Birla, Chairman of Aditya Birla Group, joined Prime Minister Modi at the launch of 5G services.

Addressing the event, Ambani said 5G was much more than the next generation of connectivity and to his mind, “it is the foundational technology that unlocks the full potential of other 21st century technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things, robotics, blockchain, and the metaverse.”

“Congratulations to the country for launching a new era, and I am really grateful to the Prime Minister for inspiring all of us and giving us this digital vision,” the RIL chairman said.

Ambani thanked the prime minister for inspiring the vision of a developed nation by 2047. “Every action and policy of the government is skilfully crafted to propel India, towards that goal.

Akash Ambani, Chairman of Jio Infocomm, the digital division of Reliance Industries Limited, said Reliance Jio targets to launch 5G services across the country by the end of this year.

“Jio plans to cover entire India by December… We will make it very affordable. It should be affordable for every Indian right from device to service,” Akash Ambani, eldest son of RIL chief Mukesh Ambani,” told ANI.

Bharti Airtel chief Sunil Bharti Mittal remarked that the launch of 5G is the beginning of a new era and since it is happening during Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, it makes it even more special.

“With the efforts of the Prime Minister, this will usher new energy in the country. We are fortunate to have a leader in the Prime Minister who understands technology very minutely and deployed that to the development of the country in an unmatched manner,” Mittal said.

Mittal further said that it will open up a sea of opportunities for people, especially in our rural areas. He recalled the Prime Minister’s initiatives in the field of infrastructure and technology from his Gujarat CM days.

He said that during the pandemic, traffic shifted to villages and homes and the country’s heartbeat did not stop even for a second. Credit for that goes to the digital vision. He also praised the audacity and achievement of the vision of Make in India.

“Along with Digital India, the Prime Minister also took forward the Start-up India campaign and soon enough, India started producing unicorns”, Mittal said. “With the advent of 5G, I’m sure that the country will add many more unicorns in the world,” he added.

Kumar Mangalam Birla, Chairman of Aditya Birla Group, said, “Vodafone-Idea has made a lot of preparations.” The network is compatible with converting into 5G. As the prime minister said, this is not just a new technology but a revolution. “Vodafone-Idea will make all efforts to be a part of this revolution,” Birla told ANI on the sidelines of a function for 5G services.

Aditya Birla Group is a promoter company of Vodafone Idea along with the UK-based Vodafone Group.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched 5G services at a function organized at Pragati Maidan in the national capital. The Prime Minister also inaugurated the sixth edition of the India Mobile Congress and also witnessed the IMC Exhibition that was put up on the occasion.

Addressing the 5G launch event, Kumar Mangalam Birla called the advent of 5G a transformational event that proves India’s prowess on the global stage and reiterates the role of telecom technology as the bedrock of India’s growth.

He thanked Prime Minister Modi for his vision and leadership for a generational leap in technology that has resulted in India making a mark on the global stage.

He also thanked the Prime Minister for his inspirational role in supporting the telecom industry during the ongoing pandemic and for the path-breaking telecom reforms in the industry.

Birla said that the launch of 5G marks the beginning of an exciting journey for India. “We will see limitless potential for 5G development and use cases in the years to come,” he added.

5G technology will offer a wide range of benefits to the common people. It will help in providing seamless coverage, high data rate, low latency, and highly reliable communications.

It will also increase energy efficiency, spectrum efficiency, and network efficiency. 5G technology will help in connecting billions of Internet of Things devices, will allow higher quality video services with mobility at high speed, and delivery of critical services such as telesurgery and autonomous cars, among others.
