Ambani India’s richest for 9th year

Industrialist Mukesh Ambani has retained the tag as India’s richest for the ninth year in a row with a net worth of $18.9 billion even as declining macroeconomic barometers flattened the fortunes of the country’s uper-rich.

As per Forbes magazine’s latest India rich list, Ambani was followed by Sun Pharma’s Dilip Shanghvi as second-richest with a net worth of $18 billion while Wipro’s Azim Premji retained his third place with $15.9 billion.
