Indian business mogul and Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani is India ‘s richest man! According to a report by China-based research firm Hurun, with a personal fortune of $19.3 billion, Ambani tops the list of richest Indians.
Interestingly, based on the same report, Mukesh Ambani is one of the rich Indians whose ‘wealth was adversely affected in 2012′. However, this hitch did not seem to be have much of an impact on the business magnate’s personal fortune.
Last year, Ambani featured in the list of ‘Forbes World Billionaires 2011’. With a worth of $27 billion, he was the second Indian to be listed among world’s top 10 billionaires and overall ranked ninth. The other Indian who appeared in the list of ‘Forbes World Billionaires 2011′ was Arcelor-Mittal chief LN Mittal, with a worth of $31.1 bn. Mittal was ranked world’s sixth richest man.
While last time, Mittal beat Ambani in terms of total wealth; however this time around, the RIL chief overtook the former with regards to personal fortune.
LN Mittal, who was ranked second in Hurun’s inaugural India Rich List, has wealth worth $16.9 billion. Like Ambani, he too featured in the list of rich whose wealth was adversely affected in 2012.
