Everyone knows about Mukesh Ambani replacing Jack Ma to become the richest person in Asia. Right, everyone knows, but what about women? In the whole world, there are 2,208 billionaires out of which 121 billionaires are from India and they are females.
In a country like India where the current situation is such that the poor remain poor and the rich keeps on getting richer, there are many ways to alter that situation. India added 19 more billionaires last year.
These are richest women in the country:
1) Savitri Jindal:
The surname itself is enough for her description. Savitri Jindal is the richest female in India and in the world, her ranking stands at 176, which is very positive. For the people who do not know – she is the ‘Chairperson Emeritus of Jindal Steel and Power Limited’. Savitri Jindal’s net worth stands at a whopping $8.8 billion!
2) Kiran Mazumdar Shaw:
Powerful & influential, Shaw is the chairperson and MD of the ‘Biocon’ limited. It is a biotechnology company based in the city of Bangalore and apart from that, she is also the ‘Chairperson’ of the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore. In the year 2017, she was at the ‘71st’ position in the list of most powerful women in the ‘world’. Shaw’s world ranking is on ‘629.’
3) Smita Crishna-Godrej:
Her world ranking is impressive, it is on 822. Smita Crishna-Godrej is the owner of $3.0 billion. Such is a business sense that she has taken ‘Godrej’ higher up. Smita Crishna-Godrej is responsible for changing the views of business being done by a female in a country like India. What is more incredible about her is that this 67-year-old is the owner of one-fifth stake in the ‘Godrej Group’.
That is something!
