New Delhi : Riding high on Jio wave, Reliance Industries Limited's (RIL) Chairman Mukesh Ambani has entered the Light Reading's 'Hall of Fame 2017'.

Ray Le Maistre, International Group Editor, 'Light Reading', announced Mukesh Ambani entering the 'Hall of Fame 2017' that recognises individuals for their contribution to the global communications industry.

"What makes Mukesh Ambani an entrant into the ‘Hall of Fame' is not that he is the richest Indian and indeed one of the wealthiest people in the world," says Light Reading, "Why he has been given the honour is for shaking up one of the world's largest communications market."

"Light Reading" is a global telecommunications industry information company based in New York. Its activities include publishing, data analysis, market research and events management.
