This makes Adani the 11th richest person on the elite list, with 500 of the world's wealthiest people, out of a global population of over 8 billion.

With this he pipped Mukesh Ambani to become not only the richest man in India, but also the whole of the Asian continent. Mukesh Ambani according to the same index has a networth of USD 109 billion, just two billion short of the Ahmedabad-based business magnate.
