RCom to exit telecom fully to focus on real estate
Billionaire Anil Ambani Tuesday announced that the cash-strapped Reliance Communications will be completely exiting the telecom business to concentrate on real estate in future.
The first priority for RCom, which is credited for democratising telecom services through cheaper offers in early 2000s, is to resolve its over Rs 40,000 crore debt, he told shareholders at the company’s 14th annual general meeting here. “We have decided that we will not proceed in this sector. And many other companies have taken a similar call. This is very much a writing on the wall, the future…
“As we have moved out of the mobile sector, we will monetise at an appropriate stage our enterprise business. Reliance Realty will be the engine of growth for the future of this company,” Ambani said.
