Chairman, Managing director and the largest shareholder of Reliance Industries Ltd. Mukesh Ambani surpassed Gautam Adani again to be India and Asia’s richest man. Due to RIL Stocks grossing record high levels in just a few hours of Friday’s trading sessions. 

In April of 2022, Gautam Adani had surpassed Ambani and had snatched the spot of India’s and Asia’s richest person entering the $100 billion club. The spot was maintained for a long time by Mukesh Ambani. But the tables have yet again turned in Ambani’s favor. 

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani has gained the ninth spot among the world’s richest as his net worth has touched a high of $99.7 billion. As compared to Gautam Adani who has reached the height of $98.7 billion which placed him at the eighth spot. 

The reasons for Reliance stocks escalating can be the stronghold that the company has on its petrochemical business. Due to the oil holdings. Which have proved to be of much value despite the ongoing oil crisis around the world. Due to the geopolitical tensions, its telecom industry has also increased its reach. And has been away from the effects of the geopolitical tensions. 

By the end of March, Ambani’s stocks were at a 3% benchmark at the Sensex and were at a record high of rupees 2750. Speculations were made that despite the ongoing oil-price rise in the international markets might benefit Reliance Industries. Moreover, from the untapped and unsold petrol and diesel incentives and stocks. Perhaps this might have been the reason for the increase in the stock prices right now.
