Most of India’s richest people lost money in 2019, according to Forbes.

But one person has remained firmly at the top of the list of the country’s billionaires — and grown exponentially wealthier.

For the 12th year in a row, Mukesh Ambani, the head of oil-gas-telecom conglomerate Reliance Industries, remained the richest person in India with an estimated net worth of $58.4 billion. He’s more than $43 billion richer than the second-richest person, having added more than $12 billion to his fortune in 2019 alone.

India’s richest 15 people, which include Ambani, pharmaceuticals billionaires, and infrastructure tycoons, are worth a combined $197.8 billion.

Here are the 15 richest people in India right now, ranked. All net worths are sourced from Forbes.
