In ten years, India will become $7 trillion economy: Ambani”

The Indian economy will grow almost three-fold in the next ten to years to become one of the world's top three economies, India's richest man Mukesh Ambani said on Wednesday.

India missed cashing in on the first three industrial revolutions, Ambani said as a crowd of about 1,000 people maintained silence to listen to him.

With internet and data consumption on the rise in India, the country's youth, which make up 63 percent of the population, possess the competence to build new digital businesses, said Reliance Industries' Chairman Mukesh Ambani.

"Data is the new oil. We also have to ensure that every Indian has access to affordable smartphone".

Reliance Industries' subsidiary Reliance Jio recently shook up the Indian telecom space with its low-priced data plans. India does not need to import it in superabundance.
