Brothers Mukesh and Anil Ambani went into a business tie up last month, after a long tussel three years ago. It is said that more business tie ups will be made in the sector of infrastructure and telecom. The success of the company can also be said to increase because of the healthy relationship between the company and the various political leaders. In the year 2002 after the founder of Reliance industries, Dhirubhai Ambani passed away he left his two sons one of the biggest company’s in India to take over. There was a tussle between them for the sectors they wanted.
But in the end, it was the power sector which went to Mukesh and the Communication sector in the hands of Anil Ambani. The poor success in the telecommunication sector can be related to the salary of Anil Ambani, they started with a great thrust but in the later years due to not so effective services customers started to leave them. Currently the leader in Telecommunications sector is Bharti Telecom. With a net worth of 5.2 Billion US dollars he is the 11th richest person in India. While the power sector which is in the hands of Mukesh Ambani is doing great business since it went into his hands.
