A news is making rounds in twitter and WA that both Nita ambani sister and RBI governer are related, is spread by frustrated aap supporters, we did a little digging on the net and this is what we found:
Nita Ambani has only one sister and her name is Mamta Dalal. (Their father’s name is Ravindrabhai Dalal).Mamta works as a teacher in Dhirubhai Ambani School in Bandra.
Whatsapp : “How many know that RBI Governor Mr. Urjit Patel’s wife and Mrs. Nita Ambani r sisters? ” proof of running government system? “

Fact: RBI governor Urjit Patel’s wife and Nita Ambani are sisters.
Surely, Reliance would not have known abt demonetization.@tinucherian

Urjit Patel on the other hand is married to KananPatel and they have two children, Eishan and Ishika. Kanan is the daughter of Anil R. Patel. She has two sisters, Rachana and Shweta.
Urjit Patel is a highly accomplished Economist. He was born into a wealthy Kenyan (of Gujarati origin) business family in Nairobi in 1963.Patel obtained his Bachelor’s in Economics from the London School of Economics , M. Phil. degree from Oxford University , and doctorate in Economics from Yale University .
He was at International Monetary Fund India desk in 1991 and was posted to the IMF country mission in India 1992–95.
He just had a one year stint as President at Reliance in 1997 (almost 20 years ago).
His recommendation letter addressed to the home ministry was written by none other than Manmohan Singh, then the Prime Minister of India. “He is very important for the country,” Singh had said. On 11 January 2013 (during the Congress regime), Urjit Patel was appointed as Deputy Governor of RBI for a period of three years.
So those who think all of this was a conspiracy plotted by Modi, Ambani, Adani and whoever else, may enjoy a poor night’s sleep and a good week’s worth of plotting imagining another conspiracy and Adani/Ambani connection…..
