Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries Ltd, Mukesh Ambani on Monday said his company will make several announcements for Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh region in the near future.

"Responding to the Prime Minister's appeal, we stand committed to support people of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh in all their developmental needs. Hence, we will create a special task force and you will see several announcements for Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh region in our developmental initiatives in the coming months," he said at the 42nd Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his address to the nation on August 8, urged companies to invest in the Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh region to increase employment opportunities for locals there.

The Parliament had revoked Article 370 that gave special status to the Jammu and Kashmir and passed Jammu and Kashmir (Reorganization) Act 2019, splitting the state into Union Territories -- Jammu and Kashmir with Assembly and Ladakh without it.

Ambani also informed that the RIL had assumed the responsibility of the families of CRPF personnel killed in Pulwama terror attack in February this year.

"As a mark of respect to the Pulwama martyrs, we have assumed full responsibility for the education of their children and the livelihood of their families," he said.
