Mukesh Ambani Appreciates Reliance Jio’s Employees for its Achievements

September 15, 2017

Mukesh Ambani is proud of Reliance Jio’s achievements and its employees and hopes to create many more records with the company.

Mukesh Ambani’s letter

On completion of one year of Reliance Jio’s commercial service, Ambani wrote a letter congratulating his employees. In the letter, he mentioned the achievements of Reliance Jio and praised his employees. Ambani stated that Jio has received 130 million customers in this one year. It has also broken several records at the national as well as global level. Adding to this, Ambani said that the biggest personal satisfactory factor for him is the myth that Jio busted. He believes that Reliance Jio has broken the myth that India is not prepared for advanced technology.

Ambani said that the ways in which India adopted 4G technology and is utilizing it are noteworthy. He told his team that they have overcome the challenge of not only launching a new technology but also making the offer simple, compelling, and convenient. Every city, town, village, and Indian would benefit from this, he added.

Reliance Jio’s plans and growth

The initial phase of Reliance Jio was focused on acquiring customers. As per company officials, the next phase will be focused on launching services. The company will roll out services related to media and entertainment, healthcare, education, and payments banking in the coming few months.

In 2016, Mukesh Ambani launched Jio with two clear objectives. The first one was to offer affordable data services to the masses. The second aim was to disrupt the telecom sector by making the Internet accessible to everyone. However, Reliance Jio has achieved much more than just these.

According to a company official, Reliance Jio subscribers consume more data that the users of Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T combined in the United States (US). The official stated that the telecom company did not expect such an overwhelming response and that this was just the beginning.

In a presentation given to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), Reliance Jio said that the investments it made before 2010 have all surpassed the recovery level. It stated that the company has received excessive returns due to the Interconnection Usage Charges (IUC).

Reliance Jio’s data service

A report from CRISIL mentioned that between the Financial Year (FY) 2012 and 2017, the mobile data usage per subscriber in India jumped to 80 percent per year. The increasing adoption of 3G and 4G services, 40 percent reduction in tariffs, and Reliance Jio’s free data services in the past year have contributed towards the rise in mobile data usage to 1.25GB per month per user.

Reliance Jio official said that Jio is receiving a good response from consumers due to the increasing demand for data. Even though customers have retained their existing operator’s SIM cards, they have shifted to Reliance Jio; and this is very encouraging.

Post its launch, Reliance Jio has disrupted the telecom sector and affected businesses of other major telecom operators in the country. However, the company’s official believes that this impact is short-term and, eventually, the whole industry will benefit from the rise in data consumption.

Summary

Chairman Mukesh Ambani praises Reliance Jio’s employees for its one-year achievements.

The aim of the challenge is to get innovative ideas that will drive the company’s next engines of growth. The challenge would have reached the employees earlier but Ambani did not want to distract his team’s focus from the telecom business.

About Mission Kurukshetra

MK was first launched in the year 2009-2010 and then again in May 2014. It is Ambani’s dream project. He envisions making RIL the most innovative company in the world through this project. MK covers a wide range of RIL’s businesses. It motivates employees to think and suggest ideas that may transform the way RIL does business.

The benefits of this project are enjoyed by all stakeholders in the form of surprising dividends. And the fruitful results have encouraged the team to strive for more.

Views of Raghunath Mashelkar

Raghunath A. Mashelkar is an academic on RIL board and a mentor of MK. He is also the Chairman of Reliance Innovation Council (RIC). He said that around ten years back, Ambani inspired him to take on the innovation project.

Mashelkar revealed that Ambani has a peculiar style of dealing with a crisis. He sees it through a different lens. He encourages the team to face challenges and achieve the impossible. Mashelkar informed that after every board meeting, Ambani conducts brainstorming sessions that last from half an hour to two hours. These sessions help everyone to come out charged and energized.

Mashelkar said that Ambani actively participates in all the matters. Ambani knows everything that is happening in the Reliance factory even more than what the factory manager would know, he added.

Views of Sushil Borde

Sushil Borde is a key facilitator of RIC. He laid the ground for MK. He defines the project as a war against complacency and status quo. He informed that MK has been very popular among the people of RIL since its inception. The project has given birth to 17,800 ideas till date with an average of 500 ideas per month since the re-launch. Borde also informed that 3,350 ideas out of these have been adopted and 64 percent of them are at different stages of implementation.

Mukesh Ambani’s inclination towards learning

Ambani lays a special focus on learning. While venturing into the telecom business, he took an online course on the subject. People working with him say that he takes such courses regularly to learn new things.

Mashelkar believes that nobody can defeat Mukesh Ambani in terms of granular thinking because he involves himself deeply in any topic. He said that Ambani is not an expert of life sciences; but, the way he reads scholars is incredible. Ambani has surprised everyone with his knowledge and questions on the latest life sciences technology.

Summary

Under Mission Kurukshetra, Mukesh Ambani will throw a “grand challenge” at his employees and encourage them to come up with innovative ideas.
