With the threshold for the new list increasing to Rs 300 crore from Rs 100 crore in 2020, the wealth of the 100 richest women in India has increased. The ‘Kotak Private Banking Hurun – Leading Wealthy Women List’ is a yearly compilation of the richest women in India. The average fortune of the women on the 2021 list is roughly Rs. 4,170 crore, up from Rs. 2,725 crore in the previous edition.

The wealth gap between men and women has grown despite this. Hurun’s top 100 richest people account for over 39% of the GDP, whilst the wealth of the top 100 women is only 2.8% of the GDP.

Women’s engagement in management and being on the rich list are related, according to Anas Rahman Junaid, MD and head researcher of Hurun India.

Three professional managers made the list, headlined by Indra Nooyi of Pepsico, who has an estimated value of Rs 5,040 billion. Due to increases in the value of the shares they acquired as executives, Renu Sud Karnad of HDFC (Rs 870 crore) and Shanti Ekambaram of Kotak Mahindra Bank (Rs 320 crore) are the other two.

There are 25 new names on the list, headlined by Neha Narkhede, co-founder of the streaming data technology company Confluent (net worth: Rs 13,380 crore). The “Hurun Global U40 Self-made Billionaires List 2022” only includes one other Indian lady.

The company Apollo Hospitals Enterprise supplied the most female leaders to the list with its four entries, followed by Metro Shoes and Devi Sea Foods with each of their two entries.
