Commenting on the Awards, Rupert Hoogewerf, Chairman & Chief Researcher, Hurun Report Global said, “India continues to grow in a robust way and in the process is expected to pave for those who aspire to create value. The awards are a testament to the effectiveness of connectivity, infrastructure development, ease of doing business and government’s focus on industry in the past decade. The wealth may seem to be concentrated in the hands of a few names – but given the potential of the Indian economy, we expect the number to double in terms of individuals having over INR 1,000 crore wealth by 2022.


Adding his views, Anas Rahman Junaid, MD and Chief Researcher, Hurun Report India, said, “For the society to grow in terms of aspirations, it is important to celebrate the heroes from the Indian business community and we are proud to have been doing it with these Awards. It is refreshing to observe – in terms of both, the India Rich List and the Awards that entrepreneurs from non-metros continue to make a promising impact. Tonight’s Awards ceremony, witnessed 9 winners of the total 13 categories, hailing from non-metro Indian cities.
