After being at loggerheads for 8 years, Ambani brothers have sealed a Rs 1,200-crore (Rs 12-billion) deal wherein Mukesh will use his younger sibling's optic fibre network for launch of his telecom venture.

Under the pact, Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries' telecom arm will hire nationwide optical fibre network of Reliance Communications for the roll-out of 4G services.

After Dhirubhai Ambani's death in 2002, Mukesh and Anil had a bitter battle over the Reliance empire. After a nasty seven-month-long ownership battle, on June 18, 2005, they split the Reliance empire to steer ahead their own interests.
