Mumbai gets ’work from home’ till July 15 as Ambani-Merchant preps for wedding

Ambani-Merchant wedding: Several offices at the prestigious commercial hub of Mumbai’s Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC), have instructed employees to work remotely until July 15.

The decision was made because of the traffic issues and restricted access due to the upcoming wedding of Anant Ambani, the youngest son of Reliance Industries Ltd. Chairman Mukesh Ambani, and Radhika Merchant, daughter of Viren Merchant. The wedding is planned to be held on July 12 at the Jio World Convention Centre in BKC, with festivities continuing until July 14.

There are a lot of inconveniences among the residents at the nearby places. Traffic restrictions have been imposed from July 12 to 15 around the wedding venue situated within the Bandra Kurla Complex. BKC is a hub of India’s major stock exchange, markets regulator, and numerous international banks.

Not only these, the Ambani wedding has also caused a price hike in hotel bookings across Mumbai. Luxury hotels in BKC are reportedly charging up to ₹1 lakh per night, with venues like Trident and Oberoi fully booked from July 10 to 14.
