Adani Group chief and India's second richest businessman Gautam Adani is challenging the reign of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) chairman and Asia's richest man Mukesh Ambani. He has come very close to Mukesh Ambani in terms of wealth. Adani can become Asia's richest billionaire overtaking Mukesh Ambani at any time.
According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Mukesh Ambani's net worth has come down to $ 89.7 billion (about Rs 6.68 lakh crore) on Thursday. At the same time, the wealth of Gautam Adani has increased to $ 89.1 billion (about Rs 6.64 lakh crore). In fact, the wealth of Mukesh Ambani has declined by $ 1.32 billion (about Rs 9,841 crore), while the wealth of Gautam Adani has increased by $ 375 million (about Rs 2795 crore). Despite this, Mukesh Ambani remains the richest person in Asia and the 12th richest person in the world.
It is noteworthy that the shares of Reliance Industries have been falling due to the withdrawal from the proposed $ 15 billion deal with Saudi Aramco, which has reduced the net worth of Mukesh Ambani by $ 1.32 billion. However, this year his net worth has increased by $ 13 billion.
Let us tell you that there were also reports in many media reports that Gautam Adani has left behind Mukesh Ambani. But it is clear from the Bloomberg report that Gautam Adani is still behind. Bloomberg publishes indexes based on daily data, the reports of which are considered authentic.
