According to the ranking of Forbes magazine, which released the list of the world’s billionaires, Gautam Adani is currently the fourth richest billionaire in the world.

This is how Gautam Adani surpassed Bill Gates
Microsoft founder Bill Gates announced last week that he was donating $20 billion of his net worth to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation this month. Because of this, there was a decrease in his wealth.

On the other hand, Mukesh Ambani, the head of Indian company Reliance Industries, occupies the tenth position in the Forbes Real Time Billionaires list with a net worth of $88 billion.
