Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani reclaimed the title of Asia’s richest person with a net worth of $84.5 billion, according to Forbes.

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Ambani accomplished a fund-raising feat, garnering $35 billion through a string of deals to achieve his target of reducing his flagship Reliance Industries’ net debt to zero by 2021, Forbes said.

Ambani was followed by Adani Group chief Gautam Adani and HCL founder Shiv Nadar.

Adani has a net worth of $50.5 billion. He got a staggering $42 billion richer as shares of his companies, including Adani Enterprises and Adani Green Energy, jumped.

Shiv Nadar, who recently stepped down as chairman of HCL Technologies, has a net worth of $23.5 billion.

The three richest Indians alone have added just over $100 billion between them.
