    Mumbai: Reliance Industries Ltd, through its subsidiary Reliance Jio Digital Services Ltd (RJDSL), has acquired 87% stake in artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot company Haptik Infotech Pvt. Ltd for 700 crore, the oil-to-data firm said Wednesday.

    "On a fully-diluted basis, Reliance will hold about 87% of the business with the rest being held by Haptik founders and employees through stock option grants," RIL said in a press statement.

    The investment will help Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd leverage Haptik’s capabilities to build India’s largest AI assistant across chat, voice and vernacular languages, RIL said.

"We believe voice interactivity will be the primary mode of interaction for Digital India."

    “We look forward to using this strategic opportunity to exponentially scale up the business across various product lines," said Haptik co-founder and CEO, Aakrit Vaish.
