Gautam Adani has surpassed Mukesh Ambani as India's richest man.

Adani has a net worth of 89.5 billion dollars, while Mukesh Ambani has a net worth of 89.4 billion dollars.

Mumbai: On Thursday, Gautam Adani, the founder and chairman of the Adani Group, dethroned Mukesh Ambani, the chairman of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), as India's richest person.

His net worth is currently $89.5 billion, compared to $89.4 billion for Mukesh Ambani. Due to a jump in the share prices of Adani's firms, his net worth has surged dramatically in recent months.

Adani's business

He is the creator of the Adani Group, India's largest port operator.

Adani Group and POSCO of South Korea recently agreed to explore business options, including the construction of a green, environmentally-friendly integrated steel mill in Mundra, Gujarat, as well as other ventures. The investment might be worth up to $5 billion.

In response to carbon reduction standards, the non-binding MoU signed by POSCO and Adani aims to expand collaboration at the group business level in multiple areas such as renewable energy, hydrogen, and logistics.
