Adani’s wealth surges 261%, now Asia’s second richest
MUMBAI: India has added five billionaires every month in the last 12 months as the value of businesses such as chemicals, software and pharmaceuticals soared. Among the traditional billionaires, Gautam Adani (59) and family, with Rs 5.1 lakh crore (a 261% surge), for the first time has become Asia’s second-richest. His family has added Rs 1,000 crore a day over the last year.
Mukesh Ambani (64), with Rs 7.2 lakh crore, remained the richest Indian for the 10th year in a row. The rise in commodity prices has enabled magnates, including Lakshmi Mittal (71) and Kumar Mangm Birla (54), to be part of India’s top 10. Vaccine king Cyrus S Poonawalla of Serum Institute of India, whose wealth increased by 74% to Rs 1,63,700 crore occupies the 6th position
64岁的穆克什·安巴尼身家7.2万亿卢比，连续10年蝉联印度首富。大宗商品价格的上涨使得拉克希米•米塔尔(71岁)和库马尔•曼加拉姆•比拉(54岁)等巨头跻身印度富豪前10名。印度血清研究所的疫苗大王Cyrus S Poonawalla的财富增长了74%，达到1.637万卢比，位居第六
Gautam Adani's brother Vinod Shantilal Adani, who owns a trading business in Dubai, too made it to the top 10, ahead of Birla, with his wealth growing threefold to Rs 1.31 lakh crore.
The last decade has seen the fastest pace of wealth creation with India’s rich adding Rs 2,020 crore of wealth every day for the past 10 years. Hurun, which compiles a list of the super-rich in India in partnership with IIFL Wealth management, has in this year’s ranking highlighted trends for the last decade.
“The number of entrants in IIFL Wealth Hurun India Rich List has grown from just under 100 ten years ago to 1,007 today. At this rate, in five years, I expect the list to grow to 3,000 individuals. The evo tion of the IIFL Hurun India Rich List is a reflection of India’s economic growth story,” said Hurun India MD & chief researcher Anas Rahman Junaid.
According to Junaid, a decade ago the cut-off for being part of the top 10 in India was Rs 30,800 crore, which has gone up to Rs 1,21,600 crore. However, the cut-off to enter the top 100 has risen nine-fold from Rs 1,800 crore to Rs 16,800 crore. Pharma has been the biggest contributor to wealth creation with 130 individuals in the rich list from pharma, followed by chemicals (98) and software (81).
I can't understand the comments criticizing these Billionaires. This is how a nation's economy grows stronger. Do some work people.
While Indian economy is going down, Gujrat economy is booming.
This is very good and very necessary surge. Adani is the pillar of India 's development and economy. he is given employment, livelihood, bread and butter to millions of people. Long live Adani.
People atleast be proud Indian....becoz of them India is growing financially.
They have worked hard to be in this position...
No wonder , Adani who leads the Jain way of Life will continue to get Prosperity by his Good Karmas and doing conduct and ethical business practices. Congratulations to him .

ALL CREDIT GOES TO BJP GOVT. ALL AND TOTAL SUPPORT TO ADANI GROUP.
Very few people know that as soon as Modi became PM, in 2015 budget he abolished wealth tax which is imposed on super rich and reduced corporate tax rate from 30% to 21%
Feku and the Gujju gang of Double A (Ambani and Adani) are literally the cancer of India. They are getting even richer when our GDP growth hits 74-year low since Independence. To make matters worse, Feku is still planning to sell our national assets like there is no tomorrow to his cronies. As we all know India was not built in a day, but Feku tries to prove that he can sell it in a day.
Thanks to his partner modi ji
Global Hunger Index - India ranks 94 of 107 countries now just below Congo, Ethiopia, and Angola and same rank as Sudan. However India is just above North Korea...that is definitely a great achievement of Modi go nment.
Slowly, India is becoming Adani India and Ambani India..
one billionaire got added every month last year, I wonder how many billion died of poverty or hunger? This is not about being pro or anti BJP, the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer is not good for any country. Govt policy should be such that to decrease wealth gap, not con tration of wealth in the hands of few.
With assetmonetising plan, BJP is on track to double Adani's by next year. Unemployment, GDP, Farmers can go to hell.
This is the reason MODI was able to come to power now these persons are harvesting what they sowed 10 years ago.
Meanwhile more than 60% of indians live on less than $2 /day
all thanks to our pm.. credit goes to him
