外文标题：India's billionaire population fourth highest
NEW YORK: According to the latest Forbes rich list for the year 2015, India is home to the fourth largest number of billionaires across the world. US tops the charts followed by China and Germany.
However, there are only five Indians figuring among the 100 wealthiest across the world.
Registering a significant jump over the last year when there were 56 billionaires with a collective net worth of $191.5 billion, the number of Indian billionaires has increased to 90 with a total wealth of $294 billion.
In comparison, the US has as many as 536 billionaires, followed by 213 from China and 103 from Germany.
I think this is a good opportunity for Dawood to demand ransom money from Indian businessmen who are looting the wealth of poor Indians.

That means inequality in the society is on a steady rise. Pretty bad news.
If black monies are taken in to consideration, than india will definately get elevated to second position
Don't brand Modiji as courupt. He is best PM.
That is nothing to be proud of. There are so many billionaires because they mak money on the minimum wages in this country on which a kid in a rich country can not even buy candy from.
the ratio of poverty is pretty much the same , India has 1.2 Billion people , 10% poverty 120 million people .
A strong msj to the world leaders that we r not behind either . Hope these billionares do smthing in return for their own country
hope these billionaires help india in reducing poverty.
