Default Forbes list: India's super-rich get richer



According to Forbes' latest compilation, the combined net worth of India's 100 richest people rose to $300 billion this year from $276 billion last year, driven by the country's booming economy and a rally in the stock market. The Forbes India Rich List says there are 69 billionaires this year, 17 more than last year.

The record number of billionaires on this year's Forbes list of Richest Indians is yet another clear signal that the centre of gravity will increasingly shift to India and China over the next decade.

Pot of wealth:
Mukesh Ambani is the richest Indian in the world, with a net worth of $27 billion, says the Forbes India Rich List. The magazine has also predicted that Mukesh Ambani would be the world's richest man by 2014. 52-year-old Ambani has interests in a range of sectors from petrochemicals and textiles to retail. Recently his company has decided to enter into hotels, power, telecom and shale gas projects. In his words, RIL is ready for a "big surge forward" and will use its strong finances for "inorganic" growth and new ventures(Photo: AFP)

Scaling new heights: The Ruia brothers of the Essar Group are ranked at fourth position with a net worth of $15 billion. The IPO of Essar Energy in May, which raised $1.85 billion, was the largest ever listing by an Indian company in London.

According to Forbes, the top four tycoons on the list are worth a combined US$86 billion, short of the $180 billion record they set three years ago, and well shy of the US$150 billion net worth of the four richest Americans.(AFP)
