History of Reliance

Reliance Group was founded in 1966 by by Anil Ambani’s father Dhirubhai Ambani.  It is one of the largest companies in Asia and is the largest company in India.  In 2002, his father died without a will, leaving a feud between his elder brother Mukesh Ambani and himself. After their mother stepped in, the group was divided into 2 groups: Reliance Industries (Oil-refining, Petrochemicals) and Reliance Group (Telecom, Power Generation, Financial Services).  

Anil Ambani was once Asia’s richest man with a net worth of more than $40 billion.  Today, he reportedly has no meaningful assets or a net worth of near zero.  His elder brother, Mukesh Ambani, runs Reliance Industries and is Asia’s richest man with a net worth of more than $50 billion.  

In March 2019, his elder brother Mukesh Ambani had helped him with a $77 million payment for Reliance Communications to mobile communication company, Ericsson.  New Delhi’s Supreme Court had ruled Anil Ambani and 2 directors will face a 3 months prison-sentence if they do not pay Ericsson within 4 weeks.
