35. Savitri Jindal – $6.5 billion
Savitri Jindal comes to show that women can also claim commanding positions as the richest politicians in the world.
Jindal had her life take an incredible turn when her husband died in a helicopter crash in 2005. Not only did she inherited control over the family company, but she also took her husband’s seat in the Government of the Indian state of Haryana.
Jindal Group is a conglomerate that runs in the steel, power, mining, and oil business. The organization quadrupled its profits once Savitri Jindal took over. Jindal Steel is the third largest producer of steel in India, whose economy is growing at a breathtaking pace as we speak.
Savitri currently ranks as the 16th richest Indian in 2016 and the world’s 7th richest mother.
