Gautam Adani's Net Worth Crashes $25B In 1 Day, No Longer India's Richest Man

Just a few days after being crowned the richest person in India, Gautam Adani has now slipped back again on the list.

What Happened: As per the Bloomberg Billionaire’s Index, Adani is now worth $97.5 billion (8.13 lakh crore). A drop of around $24.9 billion (₹2.07 lakh crore) in a day. The slide comes as several Adani Group stocks saw a thrashing at the bourses on Tuesday as the BJP fell short of the majority mark.
