In a major development amid the chorus for an 'Aatmanirbhar Bharat' or self-reliant India, Reliance Industries (RIL) Chairman Mukesh Ambani on Wednesday announced that Reliance Jio has developed a complete 5G solution from scratch.

He added that Jio can easily upgrade its 4G network to 5G , since it is all-IP network architecture.

In another major announcement, the RIL CMD announced that Google will invest Rs 33,737 crore for a 7.7 per cent stake in Jio Platforms Ltd.
