Anil Dhirubhai Ambani is an Indian businessman born on June 4, 1959. He served as the chairman of Reliance Group, which was formed in July 2006 due to a demerger from Reliance Industries Limited and is also known as Reliance ADA Group. Reliance Capital, Reliance Infrastructure, Reliance Power, and Reliance Communications are among the companies he oversees listed on stock exchanges. The veracity of Ambani’s claim that he is bankrupt and has no net worth before a UK court in February 2020, when he was earlier the sixth richest person in the world, is up for debate. He served as an independent MP from Uttar Pradesh in the Rajya Sabha, the nation’s upper house of parliament, between 2004 and 2006.
