As birthday gifts go, this one takes the cake.

Mukesh Ambani, the country's richest man and chairman of Reliance Industries [Get Quote], is understood to have gifted his wife, Nita, a unique, customised, plush corporate jet, on her birthday which was on November 1.

Its cost - a mind-boggling Rs 240 crore-plus. The aircraft, an Airbus 319, has all the luxury trappings associated with the lifestyle of jet-setting kind such as a sky bar, a master bedroom as well as a bathroom with fancy showers.
