"I personally, and the entire Reliance family, are truly overwhelmed and deeply humbled at the award of this great national honour, the Padma Vibhushan, for the greatest entrepreneur and wealth creator in the history of India, my beloved father, Shri Dhirubhai Ambani.
The true legacy of Dhirubhai lies in the inspiration that he continues to provide to millions of young people, who are dreaming impossible dreams, and setting out to achieve their entrepreneurial ambitions.
I am profoundly grateful to the present government, and in particular, our visionary Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, for this recognition.
In his lifetime, Dhirubhai created and shared more wealth with Indians than anyone before or since.
In this special moment of joy and pride, we at the Reliance Group rededicate ourselves to DHA’s lifelong ideals of nation-building and value creation."
