Kolkata: WITH the company’s business interests growing in Bengal by the day, Reliance Industries has now started wooing the intellectual and academic arena of the state.

The company’s chairman Mukesh Ambani today announced that Reliance Jio will introduce a chair in “a prestigious university” of Bengal in the name of celebrated scientist late Satyendra Nath Bose.

Ambani made the announcement while speaking at the state government organised Bengal Global Business Summit at New Town in Kolkata. He did not name the university where the chair will be introduced but sources said that it will either be at Presidency University or Jadavpur University known for their academic excellence.

Coincidentally, the announcement comes at a time when followers of the noted physicist recently kick-started a year-long celebration of his 125th birth anniversary that falls on 1 January next year.
