Mumbai: India’s richest person and Chairman of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) is likely to once again enter the $100bn-club as the conglomerate company’s share surges. His current net worth is $98.7 billion.
RIL share price increased by around 14 percent in the past month. On February 25, the share price was Rs. 2, 283.95 which spiked to Rs. 2616 on March 25.
Why RIL share price surges?
The stock price is nearing its all-time high level of Rs. 2, 750. Singapore gross refining margin is one of the reasons behind the surge in the stock price.
Apart from it, the company’s telecom business remained unaffected despite geopolitical tensions and inflations as the cellphone has become part of the essentials needs of the people.
Reliance Retail Ventures Limited is also performing well. Recently, it acquired an 89 percent stake in Purple Panda Fashions Private Limited.
Adani’s net worth too climbs
Meanwhile, Gautam Adani, founder and chairman of Adani Group and second richest person in India is also likely to enter the $100-bn club. Currently, his net worth is $96.2 billion.
