Reliance is eyeing on this framework to have their own PNG / CNG distribution cells across villages.

Reliance is looking a way ahead and is now interested to set up grid between its east and west refineries, RIL has a production point at Kakinada , which produced Natural Gas from Krishna-Godavari (KG Basin), once this network is build then with benefits of GSPL Gas Silo at Uran and Dahej (South Gujarat). Reliance can transfer natural gas to any of its refining areas;

Jamnagar's Reliance refinery is a big reason to cheer again, this time for the Reliance employees.
 
On birthday of the founder, Mr. Dhirubhai H. Ambani, Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) is announcing heavy pay rise.
 
Hikes will be from 22-55%, and many of this is aimed for retention in IT, engineering and marketing units, Reliance group is currently India's largest private sector enterprise with some 40,000 employees, in immediate response to counterstrike Reliance's move for grabbing employees, Govt. owned Oil and Natural Gas Corp. Ltd. (ONGC) has said that it is also planning similar pay hikes.

Jamnagar Brass Parts Owners - Rising against Chinese tide


Jamnagar is not just an alias of Reliance Petroleum Ltd. or home of Rolls-Royce's of Jamnagar's Kingship - The Jam sahibs

There is more to Jamnagar then it meets the eyes.

Jamnagar 's Major Industry is Brass Parts Manufacture, An industry which gives jobs to thousands of workers in Jamnagar and some hundred-thousands in nearby villages.

This single city serves 70% of India's demand for machine brass components. Today many tiny electrical and precision brass parts are made from Jamnagar's brass factories, some of the big names in the industry has client names ranging from BMW, GM, Toyota to many refinery equipment manufacturing companies, along with electrical and precision parts, brass parts manufacturers also produce Bicycle parts, nuts, screw, bolts, rivets, kitchen and car appliances. Currently Jamnagar Brass industry is a whooping 2,500 crore industry.

After ruling the world for 60 years, its shine is fading, one of the major problems is stiff competition from China, and China dumped low quality toys and electrical appliances, which removed many small companies which used to provide parts to Indian Toy maker companies.

However Sun has shone again, Jamnagar Brass industry is awake with Quality as new Mantra, M & A has showed these small entrepreneurs a new way of business, many of these small giants now learned the Global Impact on their small business and have decided to be Big.

Still some 2,500 SME of Brass Parts Manufacturers are facing the music, some of these started to explore unknown territory of Latin America, Africa and Scandinavian country for search of potential clients.

Security Proposal Rejected - Jamnagar Reliance Refinery

I always wondered why Ambani's have chosen Jamnagar to construct
world's largest refinery base in the world, considering the strategic
defense significance of Jamnagar as first target for western enemies.

Jamnagar boasts a defense base of all three wings, INS Valsura is the
most preferred point to enter in to enemy territory, Jamnagar Airbase
has proved its importance and its strength in 1971 war against
Pakistan, Jamnagar has enough army personnel deployed and has great
setup of Air-Defense.

As the terror grows, Now Reliance realized the potential (Occupational
hazard) of the Jamnagar Refinery location.

At a time when refineries all around the world are equipped with
Anti-Aircraft guns, Indian Defense ministry rejected the proposal of
Reliance Petrochemicals to provide additional security to refinery.
