In September last year, Flipkart founders Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal (they are not related) made their debut on Forbes India’s annual rich list. With the ecommerce giant being valued at $15.2 billion, the Bansals’ net worth was estimated to be $1.5 billion each, making them the first ever ecommerce entrants to the rich list. It has been a rocky twelve months since, for both Flipkart and its founders: Five of its investors have marked down the value of their investments in the company, competition from deep-pocketed rival Amazon has intensified, and there’s also been a leadership change. This year, the Bansals do not feature on our list.
