Founded only in 2015, this company is known as one of the biggest game-changers in the Indian telecom industry. Reliance Jio offers high-speed internet and network coverage across India.
Jio conquered the Indian market using its competitive pricing strategy. Despite being a late entrant the company already holds a majority share in the telecom industry and also has turned it into an oligopoly.

Reliance has already begun acting on this by already acquiring Norway-based REC Solar Holdings for $771 million, and purchase of a 40% stake in Shapoorji Pallonji Group company Sterling & Wilson Solar for $370 million.
Founded in 1996, the Network18 group is an Indian media conglomerate. The company was originally founded by Geeta and Rakesh Gupta. The company was later acquired by Reliance in 2012.
This however was not smooth as the acquisition occurred due to the mounting debt of the company which forced them to enter into a debt agreement with Reliance.
The worsening debt situation resulted in a hostile takeover of the company. The list of networks include
- Colors Range of channels
- Money control
