Packy McCormick led me here. My mom's from Indian and am OCI (based in Singapore). I fired up my brokerage account to buy Reliance shares but wasn't allowed to unfortunately (have to be an indian citizen). Sighs.
Not one single journalist in India has done what you have done with this article. So well researched and masterfully put together.
I’m an Indian working in the start up space who subscribes to Ben Thompson (whom led me here !). Well written!
Great article. Minor nit: The link on "skirmish with RIL" also points to the earlier LnT takeover link.
I enjoyed reading every bit of your write-up.
Very well written.
Very informative article, clearly alot of time and research went into it. Thank you.

GREAT insights and so thoroughly researched..also you flow of story is so intriguing it never feels like you are reading a report or something..grt work!
This (and the origins) has to be one of the best written articles I've read. My dad told me a few years back that "Every Reliance company operates as a startup inside a big company. Execution is priority over everything else, that's why all their companies are successful".
Nice write up. One hopes that Reliance continues to forge ahead in its ambitious foray to digitally connect across the hinterland. At the same it is quite worrying the significant amount of influence it holds on the govt machinery and its ability to bend/favourably interpret regulations. In as much that commentaries from outside also opine that some recent investors would look at their investments as a way to negate any governmental veto against their plans.
