Mukesh Ambani, chairman of Reliance Industries, offered prayers at the Guruvayur Shri Krishna Temple in Kerala. This was Mukesh Ambani’s third visit to a temple this week. Earlier on Monday, Mukesh Ambani visited Shrinathji Temple in Nathdwara of Rajasthan and on Friday he visited and offered prayers at Tirupati Balaji Temple in Andhra Pradesh.

Mukesh Ambani was accompanied by his youngest son Anant Ambani’s fiancée Radhika Merchant during the visit. Mukesh Ambani prayed at the Sopanam (inner sanctuary) of the temple with his family. He also made offerings to the elephants at Chenthamarakshan and Balaraman temple.

He was welcomed by the Chairman of the Board of Guruvayur Devaswom, Prof. PK Vijayan, at the temple and presented him with a mural as a token of their appreciation.

On Friday, the chairman of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), Mukesh Ambani, made an offer to 1.5 crore at the ancient hill shrine of Lord Venkateswara near Tirumala, a temple official said. Ambani, an ardent devotee of Lord Venkateswara along with Radhika Merchant who is the daughter of Encore Healthcare CEO Viren Merchant and other RIL officials arrived in the hills in the early hours of Friday, the official told PTI. After worship, Ambani presented a check for 1.5 crore to TTD Additional Executive Officer A Venkata Dharma Reddy at the shrine, the official said.

After a brief stay at a guest house in the hills, Ambani, Radhika Merchant and others took part in an hour-long sacred ritual of Abhishekam (holy bath) conducted at dawn at Lord Venkateswara in the inner sanctum by high priests amid chanting Vedic hymns, the TTD official said. Before leaving the hills, Ambani fed the elephants at the temple, the official added.

Meanwhile, Reliance Jio is set to launch high-speed 5G telecom services by Diwali in several key cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai this year.

Thereafter, it intends to extend its 5G network to every city, tehsil and talukas across the country by December 2023, which is 18 months in nearly 18 months.

Reliance Jio Infocomm acquired spectrum in the 700 MHz, 800 MHz, 1800 MHz, 3300 MHz and 26 GHz bands in the recently concluded 5G auction conducted by the Ministry of Telecommunications, where the government received approximately 1.5 lakh bid.

Compared to 3G and 4G, 5G has very low latency which will improve user experience in various industries. Low latency describes the efficiency of processing a very high volume of data messages with minimal delay.

Reliance Jio, Adani Group, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea were the four main participants in the spectrum auction.
