Millennium Business Leader of the Decade Mr. Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani, MANAGING DIRECTOR, Reliance Industries Ltd. Worth $43 billion in 2008 when he was the world's fifth richest person, Mukesh Ambani has seen a steep decline in his fortune since then, a $2.9 billion drop in the past year alone. Regardless he remains India's richest person and is still bullish; says he plans to invest $25 billion in his businesses over the next 2 years. Amid falling output from his Reliance Industries' KG-D6 offshore oilfield, the government finally approved the doubling of the nation's gas prices, effective April. This decision, which his oil giant and its partner BP had long lobbied for, once again sparked allegations it had deliberately suppressed output and hoarded gas. The company has denied wrongdoing but faces a criminal investigation instigated by anti-graft crusader Arvind Kejriwal, founder of the Common Man's Party who recently alleged that Ambani is "running the government". Ambani is contemplating suing him for defamation. Meantime, his telecom arm Reliance Jio Infocomm which is preparing to roll out 4G services with help from brother Anil's company, snatched additional telecom spectrum for $1.8 billion in a February auction. A vegetarian and animal lover, Ambani recently banned his Reliance Retail chain from selling non-vegetarian items. His older son Akash, an undergrad from Brown University, has started working at Reliance Jio.
