While Reliance has already set up a huge legacy in petrochemicals and refining businesses, the recent set of acquisitions are focused towards making its other business endeavors in retail, telecom and media more profitable. Some of the acquisitions also hint towards the company creating more content. As experts believe, having more content will allow Reliance to draw more customers to their network. This seems to be a part of an elaborate plan to build digital services around Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd.
