RANK 7 –  Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani, 59

SOURCE

Chairman, Reliance Industries | (Rank 2016: 5)

THE REASON

Continues to remain the richest Indian with a net worth of Rs 1,75,400 crore (US $26 billion), according to the Hurun Global Rich List. He is now focusing on his telecom venture, Reliance Jio, which is making aggressive plans in the segment, giving established players such as Airtel a run for their money.

THE WORK

Jio has secured over 10 crore customers in less than six months.

THE FUTURE

With Jio set to charge customers from April, his next move in the intensely competitive telecom sector will be keenly watched.

NITE: A nature buff, Ambani loves to visit wildlife hotspots such as Kruger National Park in South Africa.
