  1. I feel so good to see that..we have this rich people in India…. and I am really proud of them……

  2. dear priya…..don’t you think these rich people can influence govt. policies on infrastructure which is in sorry state….
    corruption which is the root cause of our failure to keep india shining….
    and the inflation which is affecting millions of indians desperate to servive in this unruly and greedy world called
    our india……………………….d.m.jashan………….

  3. Hi Priya,

    It is true that Indians have come in the list of richest people of the world. It only shows the potrntiality of Indians. All we need to do is put in our best!!

  4. All the Top10 people can make our Rupee Stronger than $. But they are not doing such things, they have to come forward to Strengthen our Rupee and every INDIAN can proudly say our INDIA is developed county and every one having food

  5. There is no boasting of any kind. Whay is tthe use of having richest people of India when the cities of India is rotting under the debris.I agree that they are not responsible for countries development but atleast they can suggest the government whether it is central and state to do some variations tin order to make some improvement to the states concerned like mainly Roads which are in bad to worst condition in all most all the cities. By involving themselves these rich people can get big contracts that help them to become more rich. Roads are like garments. If you go ourt in raggs your identity is poor, When you out with good clothing you will be identified as financially stable. Like wise the roads of a country or a state will identify you as a rich country or a state by travelling on the roads. One can judge the situation of the country’s economy by the condition of the roads.

  6. Thanks for giving information, who’s are reached at rich position.
    Great….I will reach on this position in short & time.

  7. Priya Madam, Thank you. It is true that they are Indians either they are inside or outside the country. When you say there is a village, it means there is a city. Like that when you say poor people are there, then there should be rich people also. Ambani’s oil port is at the entrance to Gulf of kachchh,(that leads to kandla port) near sikka, very close to Karachi,Pakistan. It is well guarded. Now a days it is very difficult to know who is our neighbours. It is difficult to know all these things unless one has pure interest. Good work, Regards

  8. Thanks for the information, but still more Indians are below poverty line they don’t have even one time food to eat. Further to more billionaires education mentioned is not clear they may be more educated.

  9. Dear Priya,I know 7 richest people of India of your list.But, our people must know the unofficial richest people of India,who transfered their wealth to the Swiss Bank Accounts.

  10. Nice Post , I knew 8 of them,
    Would you please tell me that this out of these 10 richest personalities in India, How many are also in the list of 10 richest personalities of World?

  11. Dear Priya,
    I am N. Benedict Alexander, Thanks for your information, these ten people also eating sleeping and living as you and me! They can’t breathe through their ears!!? Am I right? Or will they live another hundred years! Can extend their lives with their money?? Or their money can save from the death? By money, they cannot even save their living body which is going back to dust! Mean to say How about their souls? For them only our almighty God JESUS told the following verses!
    Matthew 16:26 Mark 8:36 Luke 9:25 – for what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Do the ten have answer for this question?
    But I am the children of living God! The one and only most powerful almighty! The King of kings Lord of lords and the Rich of richest JESUS Christ!! So think who is the real rich man?? Put my name at first in your list!! Please! Thanks and Jesus blesses you. Call 09940540298 or 08015412404 – Chennai

  12. Thanks for this article.I know all of them. One thing more Sunil Mittal basically belongs to my city Ludhiana.

  13. though i have known and read about all of them as the richest tycoons of india, the chronological order of the rich in the country is informative.

  14. YES,
    India has large human and other resources.India is not a poor country. Due to huge population demand is too high. Therefore earning of Indian business men is too high. I want to express my opinion, a person who wants to become rich in India. He should try to do business or carry industry. Business is better than employment. I know some small businessman/ industry man whose earning of one or two days even more than 30 days salary of Govt employee. So it is not strange that rich people lives in India.Business is always rich than employment.

  15. Very useful information.if You combine both brothers mukesh and anil they become world ranking first richest person, life long for ever

  16. It is known to all that, there have no guarantee of food (twice daily) are 40% in our country & surprisingly the representative of rich people in the world are rising day by day from our country. This surprise me.

  17. Respected Priya,

    In above list of richest persons are well known by me. All those are biggest personality who handle Indian Economy. If the richest person of india would like can make more strong and stable of Indian Economy.

  18. Dear Priya,
    Thanks for the information. Only four names of India richest known to me. There are lots of billionair and millionair in India which is not known by the common peoples.

  19. IT IS A GREAT FEELING TO KNOW THAT THE NUMBER OF INDIANS FEATURING IN THE LIST OF THE RICHEST PERSONS IN THE WORLD IS ON THE INCREASE. THEY SHOULD HELP TO MAKE INDIA. AND WANT TO TAKE PART IN SOCIAL & POLITICAL WAY WILL HELP TO MAKE BETTER INDIA.

  20. IT IS A GREAT FEELING TO KNOW THAT THE NUMBER OF INDIANS FEATURING IN THE LIST OF THE RICHEST PERSONS IN THE WORLD IS ON THE INCREASE. I FEEL THAT THESE GREAT INDIANS AND MANY OTHER INDIANS CAN UNITE IN SOME FORM OR OTHER TO MAKE INDIA THE RICHEST AND POWERFUL NATION

    • THanks, i was knowing only four names among them ,its good to no tat we have so many rich persons in india,but bad thing is we have more poverty nor any rich persons are helping them ,so the should be rich from heart also

    • Dear Priya,
