With investment of over 150,000 crore, Jio will provide paid services to their customer’s from April onwards. Jio has already made competition in telecom segment at new level. This has been affected all the telecom companies. But the positive thing in this competition is that the problem of call-drop is going to be finish. Reliance com has already shown her plan for making a combined entity of Aircel, MTS, Rcom. This will provide to combined entity having spectrum in all 22 circles.

Idea and Vodafone are also working on their plan of working together so that they would also have spectrum in all 22 circles. And last Airtel has decided to acquire telenor business of India. This deal of Airtel would help him to operate in all 22 circles. However, Jio doesn’t need to buy or merge their business with any other telecom company because they have already managed about how they can operate in all telecom circles of India. Although, Interesting part of April would definitely be close watch of Jio’s Revenue. If minimum 40 percent customers start using Jio paid services. Then we can expect that Jio would become a company of 8,000 crore turnover quarterly from their retail business.

LYF, a mobile brand having main aim of providing 4G devices at a cost of accessible to all.  It is a subsidiary of Reliance Retail, the consumer electronics arm of Reliance Industries Limited. TV18, a media company is also now a part of Reliance Industries.

For Q3 2017, Company said that their total debt increased from Rs.1,89,132 crore to Rs.1,94,381 crore due to higher investment on Jio Brand. However, we saw a sharp rise in Reliance Stock during end of Feb after Jio announcement that it will now provide Paid services to its customers. The sharp rise in the stock was mainly because of growing business across all subsidiaries which was not been reflected in stock for last 4 years. Although from present levels, Reliance stock can give even 15 percent more return in short-term. Market Capital of Company has not reach as much as was expected to grew. One who holds Reliance or want to buy stock of RIL can buy for target of Rs.1420.

Even now after grown metal prices and anti-Dumping duty, JSPL has posted a big loss in Q3. But the positive thing is that the company has Quality Assets. Future of JSPL seems to be good because company is working on their expansion in India as well as in other foreign countries. Sharp rise that we saw in stock during February was because of growing interest of investors in Metal Sector.
