Mumbai: Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani has topped the IIFL Wealth Hurun India Rich List 2021 for the 10th year in a row.
Mukesh Ambani has wealth of Rs 7,18,000 crore, making him the richest man in the country.
Four businessmen made it to the top 10 for the first time – ArcelorMittal’s Lakshmi Mittal, Kumar Mangalam Birla of Aditya Birla Group, Gautam Adani’s brother Vinod Shantilal Adani and Jay Chaudhry, founder of Zscaler.
Across 119 cities, 1,007 individuals have wealth of at least Rs 1,000 crore each, according to the list.
Karan Bhagat, Founder, MD & CEO, IIFL Wealth, said, “The rising wealth creation documented in IIFL Wealth Hurun India Rich List 2021 is a reflection of the robust foundation of the Indian businesses and the confidence they command from their respective stakeholders. Key facts from the list that stand out for us are the rise of women wealth creators, the reduction in average age, and the inclusion of Tier 2 cities such as Pune, Rajkot, Surat, Faridabad and Ludhiana in the top 20. For us at IIFL Wealth, these factors are already translating into newer solutions and strategies around the wealth management business.”
