Meet the seventh richest person in India

Savitri Devi Jindal is not just a billionaire who has marked her name in the top 10 richest people of India, but she is a role model for all women and men who are smashing the boundaries of patriarchy. As of 11 October 2021, she is ranked seventh richest person in India according to Forbes real-time net worth check. Her net worth currently is at about Rs 1,326 billion.

In India where the majority of the family-owned businesses are run by men, Savitri Jindal makes an exception. She is not only an active businesswoman but also a political leader. She has successfully carried on the legacy of her late spouse Om Prakash Jindal in business and politics as well. OP Jindal was a visionary man who founded Jindal Group and Jindal Steel and Power company. He was also a former minister of power of Haryana. After his accidental death in a helicopter crash in 2005, Savitri Jindal stood strong, contested the elections and was elected as a member of the legislative assembly of Haryana.

After taking over the Jindal conglomerate as a chairperson, the group’s revenues quadrupled and established a leadership position in different businesses. Currently, the four main divisions of the conglomerate group; steel, power, mining, oil & gas, are run by her four sons, Prithviraj, Sajjan, Ratan, and Naveen Jindal. Jindal Steel has become the third-largest producer of steel in India.

Savitri Jindal is not only actively engaged in business and political activities but also in philanthropic and social activities. She has contributed to the education and medical sectors too. She is currently 71, and being a chairperson emeritus, she likes to keep her space from business operations and oversees the various social welfare programs in education and healthcare on behalf of the Jindal Group.
