When it comes to the wealth of the country, Mukesh Ambani’s name comes first. He has assets worth Rs 6.27 lakh crore. Forbes continues the list of India’s richest people. In this, Mukesh Ambani is the first and Gautam Adani, the head of Adani Group, is second. Adani has assets worth around Rs 3.75 lakh crore. Adani replaces Radhakishan Damani.
After these big businessmen, third is the founder of IT sector company HCL Tech, Shiv Nadar. His total net worth is around Rs 1.74 lakh crore. Radhakishan, popularly known as Retail King, ranks fourth in the Damani list. Avenue Super Mart is the company of D-Mart.
Two new names in the top-10 include Cyrus Poonawala of Serum Institute of India (SII) and Dilip Sanghvi of Sun Pharmaceuticals. SII is the largest company producing the Corona vaccine. Sunil Mittal and Family is 10th in the list. Their net worth is about 78.12 thousand crores.
Despite Corona, the number of billionaires in the country increased
The special thing is that despite the Corona epidemic, the number of rich people in the country has increased. According to the report, the total number of Indian billionaires this year stood at 140. It was 102 last year. If the total wealth of all 140 billionaires is added, then it would be about $ 596 billion i.e. 44.28 lakh crore rupees.
Mukesh Ambani is also the richest person of Asia
Mukesh Ambani is the richest person not only of India but also of Asia. His company, Reliance Industries, works in a variety of sectors. This includes Oil and Gas, Telecom, Retail and others. Reliance is also the market leader in most.
This is the reason why there was tremendous investment in Mukesh Ambani’s companies despite Corona, which was around 2.60 lakh crore rupees ($ 35 billion). This has also made Reliance debt free.
Gautam Adani’s wealth increased by 5 times
On the other hand, the property of the famous Gautam Adani, also known as Port and Infra Tycoon, has also grown rapidly. Adani Enterprises and Adani Green Energy are increasing their wealth due to record gains in stocks. Adani increased its stake in the country’s second busiest Mumbai airport to 74%.
Similarly, by selling 20% stake in Adani Green to French energy company Total, it raised more than Rs 18 thousand crore. Adani’s wealth has grown 5 times since 2020.
