Reliance Jio plans to raise Rs 15,000 crore

Reliance Jio Infocomm, the telecom venture of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), is planning to raise Rs 15,000 crore through rights issue, the company informed the National Stock Exchange on Monday. The Mukesh Ambani-owned company, in a notice, said that the issue will be open to all existing shareholders. Jio’s board has already given a nod for the issuance of equity shares of Rs 10 each aggregating to Rs 15,000 crore to the existing shareholders of the company on rights basis.


The company, which launched 4G services for its employees in December last year, has a capital expenditure (capex) plan of Rs 1,00,000 crore by the time it starts operations.

According to media reports, Joo has so far spent Rs 85,000 crore a significant portion of which was spent on airwaves across spectrum bands.

Jio is widely expected to commence commercial services around April this year. Jio earlier today inked a spectrum buying and sharing agreement with Anil Ambani-led Reliance Communications. Media reports said that the spectrum sharing and trading deals are likely to cost the company around Rs 4,500 crore.

Update : after calling vodafone nodal kerala .
They added the previous benefits.
As i always say their customercare in kerala and coverge is mind blowing.
They also told sorry deeply as well as promised they will update the information.
Solved in 2 hours.fastest resolution.
If it was idea it would have taken 3-5 days.
However i can never agree with massive reduction of data by AVoId team.
Its enough, jio just launch..its enough..
Cant get looted more…

We enjoyed double data for a particular period, a few months ego.

January 19, 2016 11:45 am 11:45 AM


Checking with CC.

January 19, 2016 11:30 am 11:30 AM

Bro, Vodafone is free to decide what kind of packs they wish to provide. It’s upto customer to decide what we want to choose. Vodafone has always been costly and would remain to be like that till they realize that MNP is actively on the rise and they are loosing customers. Impact of Rjio on the incumbent operators woukd be interesting to see.

Dear pal from kannur,

Its free to decide i agree but that doesnt mean they can loot us as much as they can.
1) I mean in website they providing old data benefit instead of decreased data.
And after recharge from official website i came to know it is decreased.
Now who is gona looser ?

2) in USSD it is showing old benefits.
Tel me who is looser ?

3) i see many atricles, peoples expectation tarif will reduced by big operators pre jio session .
Now what happned ?

They will update each and everything..
Such hikes it will take months and month to update .

January 19, 2016 12:42 pm 12:42 PM

Bro, you have a right to complain because they haven’t updated the change in their website or through ussd till now and customers are being cheated. You should reach out to appellate authority or visit pgportal. Atleast this can be done right.

Anyway i am straight away calling to nodal officer for updating the information in ussd as well as website.
Also in my vodafone app.
Will also mention the cheating done by them ie.,not received promised benefits.
I believe Rs.149- 500 MB to 375 MB is a massive reduction.

Hope they update soon .

January 19, 2016 11:27 am 11:27 AM

You’re making Vodafone richer by doing random recharges. Right now, I stick with Rcom as a primary number for 3g data (442 for 3GB 3g data valid for 90 days along with 1p/s calling) I do a small 123rs recharge for 1GB valid for 7 days, and it gets added to the extra data, and its still valid for 90 days. Yeah even i was surprised there. So, since im in Gurgaon, I keep my Vodafone number just to receive bank sms and thats used as my primary whatsapp number, im keeping it. I made a few recharges before, but… Read more »

Yes prasant..
Not wasting money by doing random recharges.instead checking from the general users/valid users.
