New Delhi : Denying reports of Mukesh Ambani shifting his base to London, Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) on Friday issued a clarification rubbishing the speculation.
“Reliance Industries Limited will like to clarify that the Chairman and his family have no plans whatsoever to relocate or reside in London or anywhere else in the world,” the company said in a statement.
The company said that a recent report in a newspaper had led to unwarranted and baseless speculation in social media regarding the Ambani family’s plans to partly reside in Stoke Park, London.
