adani: Forbes 100 richest Indians: Gautam Adani, Mukesh Ambani retain top spots | News Bharat

Business tycoons Gautam Adani and Mukesh Ambani have retained the top spots in the Forbes Top 100 Richest Indians for 2022. The list shows that the combined wealth of the 10 richest Indians has crossed $800 billion. The combined wealth rose by $25 billion, even though the stock market was down slightly from last year and the rupee weakened against the US dollar.

Gautam Adani claims the top spot in the list with a net worth of ₹ 1,211,460.11 crores. A Mint report suggests that Adani’s wealth will triple in 2021 alone. With a net worth of $134.7 billion, Adani is also the third richest person in the world, behind only Elon Musk and Bernard Arnault.

However, this is the first time Forbes has ranked the Adani Group chairman as the richest Indian, a position that belonged to Mukesh Ambani for a very long time. The chairman and MD of Reliance Industries currently has a net worth of ₹ 710,723.26 crore. Ambani lost the top position for the first time since 2013.
