There is no doubt that India has produced notable billionaires even as family businesses have passed down from generation to generation. However, the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.
In a bid to make a difference in society, few billionaires in India are extending their fruitful contributions to the less unfortunate ones.
There are as many as 131 billionaires in India. Many industrialists have reported a drastic jump in their wealth. Even during this coronavirus crisis, billionaires in India managed to grab their position firmly.
In an era with booming entrepreneurship success stories, success is often measured by the value one has in terms of money. The success, however, is years of hard work and toil that get people where they are today.
When it comes to the three pillars of India in the richest people’s sector, it reminds us of Ratan Tata, Mukesh Ambani and Gautam Adani. We often talk about their wealth, net worth, monthly salary, annual salary, properties, homes, cars and so on.
Now, in this article, we will take a look at the educational qualifications of the three richest Indians.
1. Ratan Tata
Mr Ratan Tata might not be the richest man in the world but for sure, he is rich at heart. The greatest man has won people’s hearts time and again for his contribution to our country and to making the nation a better place.
The owner of Tata Group of India also proved that being on the Forbes list doesn’t make one rich but giving it back to society is one that matters the most. The Tata Trust has also donated a staggering ₹500 crore to fight against the COVID-19 epidemic for the purchase of PPE kits for the medical personnel, purchase of testing kits and more. Ratan Tata is an inspiration.
Indian industrialist and philanthropist did B.S. in Architecture at Cornell University in New York.
2. Mukesh Ambani
Mukesh Ambani is the second richest man in India and Asia. He was the richest man in India for 14 years in a row before he was surpassed by billionaire Gautam Adani.
Ambani who has a fortune of $95 billion earned a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Mumbai University. He joined Stanford University to do an MBA. However, he quit his studies in order to take care of the family business.
3. Gautam Adani
Gautam Adani is currently the richest man in India and Asia. Keen on standing on his own leg, Adani left college and then started as a diamond sorter at Mahindra Brothers. Today, the 57-year-old Chairman of Adani Group manages several businesses in the areas of energy, agriculture, defence, and aerospace.
In fact, Adani who has a net worth of $128 Billion is a dropout student. Adani was admitted to Gujarat University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in commerce. However, he dropped out in the second year of his studies.
