Reliance Jio has once again roped in another huge investor, this time Google, as they fortify their already illustrious portfolio. 

Google 🤝 Reliance 

Google has marked their biggest ever investment in an Indian company after paying ₹33,737 crore to Reliance Jio Platforms Ltd for acquiring a share worth 7.73%. They join the list of global investors such as Facebook to have infused capital in the Mukesh Ambani-led company. 

The gargantuan amount raised by selling nearly 33% of the Jio's stake to many financial and strategic investors has helped RIL erase its net debt way ahead of March 2021. 

Plans in motion  

The two parties will collaborate in rolling out an affordable entry level smartphone in the Indian market. Google's tech coupled with Jio's strong telecom presence in the market will help push the project to the public. 

Bottom line: The Google-Jio deal will help both Jio & Google to Dominate the emerging digitisation market in India.

The Reserve Bank of India has rejected Kerala-based Muthoot Finance's proposal to acquire IDBI AMC. 

The Reason 

The RBI has stated that activity of sponsoring a mutual fund or owning an AMC doesn't go with agreement of operating an NBFC.

Details of the Deal 

Muthoot Finance Limited (MFIN) had signed a share purchase agreement to  acquire IDBI Asset Management Limited and IDBI MF Trustee Company Limited in November 2019, for a fee of around Rs 215 crore. Through this acquisition MFIN was planning to enter the Mutual Fund Asset Management space.  

India Bans Chinese Apps. Again.

Well, not a bad hobby to have - banning Chinese apps every 3-4 months. 

Yes, the Govt of India has gone all-out again and done it again !

Totally Out of the Blue 

The Government has blocked access to 43 more Chinese apps, including an array of  Alibaba-owned apps and tencent backed app snack video, for being prejudicial to the sovereignty, integrity and defence of the nation. 

The sheer unexpectedness of the move is sure to have caught the Chinese off guard. After banning almost close to 200 Chinese apps this year, China might've never seen this coming. 

Chinese apps everywhere

On another note tho, how many Chinese apps are there?? It seems like the government finds a batch of new ones every three months and indeed, boost Atmanirbhar Bharath!

Bottom Line: Let's go Atmanirbhar!
