Forbes released its 2019 ranking of India's 100 Richest People.
More than half of the country's richest people lost money in 2019 as economic growth slowed.
India's richest man, on the other hand, Mukesh Ambani, added $4.1 billion to his fortune.
The 62-year-old chairman of oil-gas-telecom conglomerate Reliance Industries is worth an estimated $52.7 billion.
The automobile and consumer goods industries suffered, but Ambani's wealth has grown this past year largely thanks to his three-year-old telecom company, Jio, which now has 340 million subscribers, according to Forbes.
