Steve Correa, Chief Human Resources Reliance Jio Infocomm has quit from his post a development that comes when company is gearing up for its pan-India 4G services launch in coming months. Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio Infocomm (RJIL) has plans to start 4G services across most of the telecom circles by March 2015

Correa has been replaced by Sanjay Jog, who came to Reliance Industries from Pantaloons for the human resources function of Reliance Retail, and has been given an expanded mandate to include Reliance Jio as well. It’s not immediately clear if the wider role is an interim or a permanent measure, according to a latest report.
