In all these three years, Mukesh Ambani did not receive any allowances, perquisites, retirement benefits, commission, or stock options from Reliance for his role as the Chairman and Managing Director.

Before that, the Chairman and Managing Director had his salary capped at Rs 15 crore since 2008-09.

Reliance Industries is one of India’s largest contributors to the national exchequer. Its consolidated contribution to the national exchequer crossed Rs 5 lakh crore in the three years from FY21 to FY23.
