At present, the net worth of Adani is reported as 90.4 million dollars and the current net balance of Ambani is 89.8 billion dollars.

The Adani Group comprises the leading companies including Adani Ports & SEZ, Adani Power, Adani Green Energy, Adani Enterprises and Adani Total Gas

However, the complete market valuation of all the Adani Group firms is fixed at Rupees 10 trillion in comparison to the Rupees 14.91 trillion for Reliance Industries of Ambani. Despite the fact, Gautam Adani is regarded as richer than Mukesh Ambani because of his company's greater promoter ownership.

The world's wealthiest lady, Francoise and her family have a net worth of 83.2 billion dollars as per the information by the Forbes Real-Time Billionaires index.
