Forbes List of Richest Indians 2019

In the middle of this collapsing economy, the total wealth of top business persons on the list of richest Indians by Forbes is reduced to 8% from last year.

More than 50 percent of the rich people in India saw a decline in their wealth. Even in this economy, few business leaders saw a big increase in their net worth.

For the 12th time in a row, Mukesh Ambani remains at the top of the list of richest Indians in 2019 with a net worth of over $51 billion. Since the introduction of JIO, he added around $4 billion to his net worth as JIO is the largest mobile network in India having almost 340 million users.

This list of richest Indians also saw the rise of Gautam Adani as he jumped from the eighth position to the second position with a net worth of over $15.7 billion. He stepped into a new business of data centers and after 9 odd years, he gets permission to start work in a coal mine in Australia.

3rd position is secured by Hinduja Brothers with a net worth of $15.6 billion while the 4th place is secured by Pallonji Mistry with $15 billion of net worth. With a $ 4 billion boost to the net worth of Uday Kotak, he raised in the top 5 for the first time as his net worth is $14.8 billion.

In the list of the top 100 richest Indians we saw the return of four people: –

  • Moffat raj Munot of Kalpataru with a net worth of $1.85 billion is in the 75th position

  • RajjuShroff of UPL is at 87th position with $1.69 billion
