#14 India Rich List 2013


Once Asia's richest woman Savitri Jindal's fortune is down by close to $10 billion since 2010, amid continuing problems plaguing OP Jindal Group, founded by her late husband. Shares of Jindal Steel & Power, family's biggest asset, tumbled when youngest son, Naveen, who runs it, got charged by the Central Bureau of Investigation in a coal mining scandal in June; he denied any wrongdoing. Company halted work in August at two power plants being built in eastern India at cost of $2 billion, following death threats from Maoist rebels. Son Sajjan reportedly plans to sell U.S. steel mill to reduce debt at JSW Steel.
