Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), India’s most valuable company, has donated Rs 25 crore to Uttarakhand to help the Himalayan state in its flood relief measures after massive destruction caused by heavy rainfall and subsequent landslides.
RIL Director Anant Ambani made the donation on behalf of the company to the Mukhya Mantri Rahat Kosh, or the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund.

RIL, and the Ambani family, have been deeply involved with various activities in Uttarakhand over many years.
In October 2020, Ambani donated Rs 5 crore to the Chardham Devasthanam Board to help it cope with the losses caused by the Covid-19 lockdown.
Reliance Foundation contributed Rs 5 crore to the Uttarakhand State Disaster Management Authority as a support to the Covid-19 relief efforts in 2021.
