Share Post:

Srinagar, Sept 21: Hurun India and IIFL Wealth today released the much awaited IIFL Wealth Hurun India Rich List 2022. This list refers to individuals residing or born and bred in India.

While 1,103 individuals, from across 122 cities, with Rs 1,000 crore, or more, wealth figure in the IIFL Wealth Hurun India Rich List 2022, guess how many individuals from J&K are in the Rs 1000 crore Club?

NONE.

While financial observers believe that there are several individuals within J&K with a net worth above Rs 1000 crore, their invisibility from the report is attributed to several factors, one being the gaps in Hurun India’s wealth assessment methodologies.

According to the report, Mumbai is the preferred city for India’s biggest wealth creators, followed by New Delhi and Bengaluru. Mumbai registered a net increase of 28 individuals followed by New Delhi which registered a net increase of 18.

With 335 and 185 entrants respectively, Maharashtra and Delhi are the preferred states of residence for individuals in IIFL Wealth Hurun India Rich List 2022.

Top 10 Wealthiest Individuals

Dilip Shanghvi and Uday Kotak re-entered the India Top 10 this year replacing Kumar Mangalam Birla of Aditya Birla Group and Jay Chaudhary of Zscaler. Gautam Adani has surged ahead to the top spot beating Mukesh Ambani with wealth more than doubling (116%) in the last year. He is ahead of the second-ranking Ambani by more than INR 3,00,000 crore. Vaccine maker Cyrus S Poonawalla & family also moved up three ranks after their wealth increased by 25% year-on-year. Three families, Shiv Nadar & family, SP Hinduja & family and LN Mittal & family, have reported a decline in wealth but still find a place in the top ten.
