Savitri Jindal, the chairperson of the OP Jindal Group, has been named the richest Indian woman in 2022 with a net worth of over 16.4 billion U.S. dollars. This makes her the wealthiest woman in India, surpassing the previous record held by Vinod Rai Gupta, the mother of Anil Gupta, who runs Havells India.
Savitri Jindal, who is the widow of the late industrialist Om Prakash Jindal, has been at the helm of the OP Jindal Group since 2005. The group is one of the largest industrial conglomerates in India, with interests in steel, power, mining, and infrastructure.

Under her leadership, the group has grown to become one of the largest steel producers in India.
Savitri Jindal has also been praised for her philanthropic activities. She has donated generously to various causes, including education, healthcare, and women’s empowerment. She has also set up the OP Jindal Foundation, which works to promote education and health in rural areas.
Vinod Rai Gupta, the mother of Anil Gupta, who runs Havells India, came second in the rankings with a net worth of 15.7 billion U.S. dollars. Vinod Rai Gupta is the widow of the late industrialist Brijmohan Lall Munjal, who founded the Hero Group. The Hero Group is one of the largest two-wheeler manufacturers in India and has interests in auto components, financial services, and hospitality.
It is clear that Savitri Jindal and Vinod Rai Gupta are two of the most successful and wealthiest women in India. Their success is a testament to their hard work and determination, and is an inspiration to other women in India.
