Mukesh Ambani, the Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), has been the richest person in India for many years. However, according to the Forbes Real-Time Billionaires List, Ambani is now the second richest person in India.
Ambani has been the top-ranked Indian on the list since 2008. His wealth has grown significantly over the years, and he currently has a net worth of $84.5 billion. He is the world’s fourth-richest person and the second-richest person in Asia.
The man who has taken Ambani’s place as the richest person in India is Gautam Adani, the Chairman of Adani Group. Adani has a net worth of $88.7 billion, making him the world’s third-richest person.
Adani’s wealth has grown significantly over the past few years. He is one of the most influential businessmen in India and is involved in a wide range of industries, including energy, infrastructure, logistics, and agribusiness.
Adani’s wealth has been driven by the success of his flagship company, Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ). APSEZ is India’s largest private port operator and has been a major contributor to Adani’s wealth.
Adani’s wealth has also been boosted by his investments in renewable energy. He has invested heavily in solar and wind energy projects in India, and his investments have helped to make India one of the world’s leading renewable energy producers.
Adani’s wealth is expected to continue to grow in the coming years. He is currently expanding his business into new markets, including the United States, and is investing heavily in new technologies.
It is likely that Adani will remain the richest person in India for some time to come. However, Ambani is still the second-richest person in India and is likely to remain so for the foreseeable future.
