WhatsApp’s user base of over 400 million users in India will help accelerate the adoption of JioMart, said Ambani.
The next investment trigger for Mukesh Ambani after Jio Platforms will be Reliance Retail. On Wednesday, the country’s richest person, chairman of Reliance Industries (RIL), said his retail unit had received “strong interest” from strategic and financial investors.

Ranked among the world’s top 100 retailers, Reliance Retail, whose turnover in financial year 2019-20 (FY20) was Rs 1.62 trillion, is ahead of the country’s second-largest retailer Future Group by a wide margin. Currently, the retail unit of RIL operates nearly 12,000 stores in over 6,600 towns and cities, covering an area of 28.7 million
