Participating in the second edition of Progressive Punjab Investor's Summit here, Ambani said Reliance had already invested Rs 3,900 crore in the state.
    
"In 2013, I outlined our engagement with Punjab and how this has helped the state strengthen its leadership position. I also talked about our investment plans in manufacturing, retail, Reliance Foundation and our digital services Jio business”, Ambani said.
    
"I am delighted to inform you that most of these investments have been made and all our commitments have been fulfilled," Ambani added.
    
Reliance Group had already invested Rs 3,900 crore in Punjab.
    
"We had committed an investment of over Rs 2,000 crore. We speak by latest counts... we have already invested Rs 3,900 crore in Punjab," Ambani said.
    
He added, "When Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal came to Mumbai (this year) I think both of us agreed with the idea that (Punjab is) one state in India where we can cover 100 per cent of population with broadband connectivity.”
    
"That was his (Sukhbir) vision and we have been rapidly infusing so we will commit through all additional resources that it takes so that Punjab will be the first state in India where every single village will be covered with broadband mobile connectivity which opens the door for all sections of the society we look forward from Reliance point of view”, Ambani said.
    
Ambani said Reliance looks forward to making sure that this digital infrastructure gives all partners opportunity to create value and start up businesses so that they can then create value for themselves.
