100 Richest Indians

I came across an article which is not directly related to Bihar but will be of interest to many people. This is the list of 100 richest Indians.

India's top 100 richest people are based out of 16 cities. Needless to say the maximum of 37 are based out of Mumbai followed by 20 in Delhi. None are based out of any city in Bihar / Jharkhand.
