Reliance is not going to be a dictator ever. Would have been possible  
during the license Raj but not now. There are far too many options too  
choose rom. And monopoly is very difficult to achieve! Even a cartel (with  
reference to an alliance statement by Vihan) will stick only across the  
supply chain and not amongst players in the same market.

It's difficult even in a duopolistic situation! Pepsi- Coke.

To cite another instance; the OPEC cartel formed in the 1980's broke down  
pretty soon.

It's only a matter of time before some smaller/larger player/s change the  
rules of the game. Case in point FOSS over proprietory software.
