If Amazon vs Future Group wasn't enough entertainment, the four year old feud between Tata Group and Mistry have come to yet another war of words. 

A Difference of Valuation. 

This time the issue is valuation. Both firms are fighting over what they feel is a fair price for the 18.4% stake of Tata Sons Pvt Ltd. owned by the Mistry Family. 

Tata’s valuation threatens to stretch the battle further at a time when the indebted SP Group is desperately seeking funds for its own cash-strapped businesses.

Mistry’s Shapoorji Pallonji Group had made a truce offer to swap its Tata Sons stake for shares worth $24 billion in the listed Tata firms.

On the other hand, sensing SP group's debt problems, Tata Group had offered to buy out the entire stock if Mistry's needed the money. 

Bottom line: Both firms have their very own problems with the impending pandemic, and the longer the dispute continues in court, the harder it'll be on both parties.

2021 might lay witness to Reliance Jio upping their game as Mukesh Ambani reveals plan to launch 5G service. 

5G on Indian Streets. 

Business tycoon and owner of Reliance Jio, Mukesh Ambani has revealed Jio's plans to launch 5G service in India. The service will be rolled out by the second half of 2021 and would be a testimony to the government's Atmanirbhar Bharat policy.

Jio has been working on 5G for quite some time now and is in close cooperation with companies including Samsung and Qualcomm. 

Apart from 5G, Jio is working with Google to launch its entry-level 4G Android smartphone. 

Dominating on all fronts. 

The arrival of Jio 5G service would help boost the existing and new developments of Jio Platforms. It will also give an edge to the telco that is already the biggest in the Indian telecom sector, with a market share of over 35 percent. 

Bottom line:  Time and again Mukesh Ambani proves why he's on top of the market chain.
