Speaking at the UP Investors Summit, he said the investment will be over and above the Rs 20,000 crore Jio has already made in the state in rolling out high-speed 4G telecom venture.
Emphasising on making Uttar Pradesh an ‘Uttam Pradesh’, Ambani said India cannot rise to its full potential without the rise of 22 crore people of the state. India’s most populous state can also become the most prosperous by embracing the PM’s Digital India mission, he added. 
The RIL chief also vowed full support to the ‘Namami Gange’ project. “I have a commitment...the Clean Ganga Mission is gathering momentum ...we at Reliance Foundation would deem it as our pious duty to contribute to the success of this mission and are ready to execute whatever part of the project is assigned to us,” he said. 
Ambani said he has come to the state to assure that Jio’s digital revolution will make maximum contribution to UP’s development, and announced four commitments in this regard including investment of another Rs 10,000 crore by Jio in the next three years.
