Ambani Considering Two Options for Jio’s Listing on Dalal Street

According to Jefferies, Mukesh Ambani is considering two options for listing Jio on Dalal Street – an IPO (Initial Public Offering) or spinning off Jio Financial Services as a separate entity.

Jio Financial has also explored listing through a similar process. Experts and industry insiders anticipate more information about Jio’s IPO potential from Reliance Industries in the coming month.
