Reliance Retail Ventures Ltd. (RRVL) said global investment firms GIC and TPG would invest ₹5,512.5 crore and ₹ 1,837.5 crore, respectively, in the company to acquire small minority stakes.These investments value Reliance Retail at a pre-money equity value of ₹4.285 lakh crore, parent Reliance Industries Ltd.
