Gautam Adani beats Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk: Here's how much he earned when India still plummets!

India and even the entire world are still driving through the testing times of the COVID-19 pandemic and the nations are displaying the signs of the yet-to-be-resuscitated economy across all frontiers from healthcare, employment, and infrastructure, but it's not the case for billionaires as their scales of wealth are exceptionally going high in the fashion that it had stunned many and raised eyebrows over the rise of wealth of the individuals when a nation plummets and finding antidotes for growth. 

Gautam Adani, who is said to be observing close ties with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, rightly fits for the exceptionality by staying off from the country's testing times as he had banked the wealth more than what world's richest Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk banked. According to the latest Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Gautam Adani, the chairman of Adani Group, had added the highest wealth to his fortune in the world amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Index had shown that Adani had added more wealth than any other global billionaires so far in 2021. He has added $16.2 billion, which took his net worth to $50 billion, and as the sequel of the unprecedented surge, Adani has now become the 26th richest person in the world. Through the skyrocketed fortune, Adani had beaten Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk in terms of wealth generation this year. 

Tesla's Musk had added $10.3 billion to his net worth so far this year while Amazon's Bezos had recorded a plunge of $7.59 billion. The Bloomberg Index said that shares of Adani's stocks except one have surged at least 50%. While Adani has topped the table by adding more wealth so far this year, Google's co-founder Larry Page is ranked second in terms of generating more wealth this year by adding $14.3 billion to his worth. 

Adani's growth has come when his conglomerate has been rapidly expanding its arm in multiple sectors across and beyond India from aviation, posts, to infrastructure. Despite the objection across the country, Adani has been benefitting from the Center's drive of privatization and he has become the largest private operator of airports and ports in the country. 

According to reports, Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Limited had recently announced that Windy Lakeside Investment Ltd, a unit of Warburg Pincus, will invest Rs 800 crore for a 0.49% stake in the company and along with that, Adani is keen on going ahead with Carmichael coal project in Australia amid the strong outrage. The Bloomberg Index had also reported that shares of Adani Total Gas have surged almost 97% this year and Adani Enterprises has advanced 87%.

On the front of the global billionaires, the top ten world's richest people include Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Elon Musk (Tesla), Bill Gates (Microsoft), Bernard Arnault (Louis Vuitton), Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Warren Buffett (Berkshire Hathaway), Larry Page (Google), Sergey Brin (Google), Steve Ballmer (Former CEO of Microsoft), and Mukesh Ambani (Reliance Industries).
