New York. Industrialist Gautam Adani has achieved another achievement. He has overtaken Amazon founder Jeff Bezos in terms of wealth. Adani has already become the world’s number three rich industrialist. According to the American magazine Forbes, Tesla CEO Elon Musk tops the list of the rich with a net worth of $253 billion. Jeff Bezos has gone down from number 2. Now number two is replaced by Bernard Arnault of France with $154.9 billion. Gautam Adani remains at number three. Earlier, Gautam Adani had come third after beating Arnault and Bernard had moved to fourth place.
On Wednesday, Jeff Bezos’s wealth declined and he reached the fourth place. At the same time, Bernard’s wealth increased and he replaced Bezos. Now Adani’s wealth is about $ 9 billion more than Jeff Bezos. Many people are surprised by the way Gautam Adani is progressing. In the last one year, the wealth of many industrialists across the world has decreased, but the wealth of Adani has increased more than twice as fast. Adani’s net worth stood at $64.8 billion last year. Now it is $ 145.4 billion. The operations of his Adani Green Energy Limited and Adani Total Gas Limited have increased by 750 times. Whereas, the business of Adani Transmission and Adani Enterprises Limited also saw a 400-fold increase.
Adani also benefited from rising oil and natural gas prices. This sector has given an increasing return of 36 per cent to the energy sector in the world. Earlier the oil and gas sector had caused a loss of 18.4 per cent to the companies. Apart from this, the share price of Adani’s companies has also increased more than double. Recently, after taking the shares of NDTV, its prices have also increased significantly.
