After having settled the ownership issue with his brother Anil Ambani, Mukesh on Monday sent an "emotional" farewell message to the employees of Reliance Infocomm, considered his pet project.
In an e-mail message to the employees of Infocomm, Mukesh said, "my younger brother Anil is taking over the stewardship of Reliance Infocomm. He has enormous energy and drive and we share a common commitment to take forward the legacy of our father Late Dhirubhai Ambani."
The Reliance 'ownership issue'
Addressing the employees as "Reliance Infocommers", Mukesh said the Infocomm business has grown from Dhirubhai Ambani's dream of making the cost of a phone call cheaper than that of a post card.
"I take this opportunity to congratulate you for your contribution in translating that dream into a reality," Mukesh said in the e-mail message.
Reliance Infocomm is now in full bloom with nearly 21 per cent of India's mobile market. "It symbolises the next generation communication organisation, connecting hundreds of millions of Indians with each other and the world and engages millions of young Indians working in the field of information technology enabled services, with economic opportunity in the developed world," he said.
Working together with dedication and passion "we have created a new milestone in Reliance historic saga of achievements".
Sharing a great sense of satisfaction in working with all the employees, Mukesh said, "as the responsibility of caring for Reliance Infocomm and leading it is now being handed over to my younger brother Anil I send my best wishes to the new leadership for greater accomplishments."
"Thanks for making Reliance Infocomm... I am sure that you will give your best to Anil and his team," Mukesh said, adding, "I take this opportunity to wish each one of you every success and glory in your chosen carrier as well as for good cheer, health and prosperity."
Mukesh said that he had all satisfaction to build this enterprise (Reliance Infocomm) from scratch ever since 2001.
"You are one of the over 40,000 bright young men and women from over 1400 geographical locations in India who have nurtured Reliance Infocomm to blossom as a pan-India voice and data service providers," he said.
