Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani today said his group will complete Rs 20,000 crore investment programme in Madhya Pradesh by March 2016.

Ambani also indicated that his group will invest similar amounts across sectors like energy and retail, after the present round of investments are completed.

He said that "after a long time" India is on a resurgent path to growth.

"For me Reliance is more than business, it stands for a commitment to India. We are dedicated to making India and also MP one of the most prosperous and developed areas in the world," said Ambani, the country's richest man.
