Every year Forbes magazine releases the list of richest Indians as per their net worth. If the Forbes report for the year 2022 is taken into consideration, India has 166 billionaires. Now, if we compare it to the world, the figures have put India in third place in the list of countries with the most billionaires, led by the United States and China. Over the years, we have seen many young and dynamic business people making it to the list of top 10 Indian billionaires list.

Some of them are the likes of Gautam Adani, Mukesh Ambani, Shiv Nadar, Lakshmi Mittal, Azim Premji, Pallonji Mistry, Dilip Sanghavi, and many more.
While they've been leading the list for some years now, there's one thing that even most of them are missing out on. Well, having a property in India's capital, Delhi's poshest area, Lutyens' is something that is still a dream of many billionaires. The reason behind it is the fact that it is one of the most sensitive areas in India, as it is surrounded by Parliament House, India Gate, and Jaipur house. Not only this, but Lutyens' Delhi is also quite close to the official residence of the Prime Minister of India and many renowned politicians like former PM, Manmohan Singh, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, and many more.
With so many renowned politicians and important government bodies around Delhi's plush area, Lutyens', it's always incredibly tough for any person, as it requires a lot of multiple background checks. However, you'll be amazed to know that there are five Indian billionaires, who own a bungalow worth crores in Lutyens'. Another amazing fact about this is that only two billionaires out of five were featured in the list of top 10 Indian Billionaires 2022, which clearly shows, how even the richest people can miss out on so many things.
