DEHRADUN: Having invested over Rs 4,000 crore in Uttarakhand, richest Indian Mukesh Ambani has said his telecom venture Reliance Jio will in the next two years connect most of the 2,385-plus government schools and colleges with high-speed internet to make the state a ‘Digital Devbhoomi’.

Speaking at the Uttarakhand Investors Summit, he said Jio will promote environment protecting industries and businesses. He said he wants to convert ‘Devbhoomi Uttarakhand’ into ‘Digital Devbhoomi’.

“Jio will boost sustainable tourism. Jio will improve the delivery of healthcare, education and government services and improve the life of every citizen,” he said.

Jio is committed to a ‘Digital Uttarakhand’ where every citizen can have the best quality digital connectivity and services, he said.

Jio, he said, will promote environment protecting industries and businesses, boost sustainable tourism and improve the delivery of healthcare, education and government services, thus improving the life of every citizen.

“All this will help create additional employment and earning opportunities for the people of Uttarakhand. We plan to connect most of the 2,185 government schools and 200-plus government colleges in the state within next two years,” he said.

Reliance also has over 100 retail stores and plans to continue grow these at a healthy rate, he added.
