    Hurun India and IIFL Wealth have released the annual list of the wealthiest individuals and families in India. The IIFL Wealth Hurun India Rich List 2022 is the 11th annual ranking of the wealthiest individuals in the country. While the pandemic may have slowed down the economy, the recovery has made fortunes for some of the richest Indians around. The cumulative wealth of the individuals on the list this year surpassed the Rs 100 lakh crore mark – a figure that is higher than the combined economy of Singapore, the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Here are the top 10 richest individuals on the IIFL Wealth Hurun India Rich List 2022.
