R-ADAG has a business presence that is spread over 4,500

towns and 300,000 villages in India, and 5 continents across the world. Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group came into existence when the business empire of the Reliance Group founded by Dhirubhai Ambani was split between his two sons, Mukesh and Anil. Mukesh Ambani, the elder brother, retained Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), the flagship company of the Reliance Group. The part of the empire that was inherited by the younger brother Anil Ambani was christened as Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group. Hence, one can say that the founder of Reliance ADAG was Dhirubhai Ambani. The interests of the Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani span communications, financial services, generation, transmission and distribution of power, infrastructure and entertainment. Reliance's BIG DTH platform is being launched by publically held group company Reliance Communications (RComm Ltd.). Investors - largely the public can gain or losses depending on the success of the DTH venture.

Both these companies are held by private company - Reliance Entertainment Pvt Ltd. which has already been valued at Rs 13,035 Crore. It would therefore not be unreasonable to expect 2 new large public issues from ADAG-Reliance, about a year after the channels are launched.
