Meet India's richest real estate baron

Promoters of the dozen top listed real estate developers in the country, including DLF Ltd, which will be listed next month, are worth a massive Rs 125,845 crore (or over $30 billion).

However, the lion's share of this net worth (derived on the basis of the latest m-cap) lies with DLF's K P Singh and his family -- Rs 77,915 crore (around $19 billion) based on the allotment price of Rs 525 per share and their shareholding of around 87.3 per cent in the company.

According to BS research, this makes K P Singh the fourth richest Indian by today's market capitalisation, after Mukesh Ambani, Anil Ambani and Sunil Mittal. He overtakes Wipro's Azim Premji, who ranks immediately after him.
