The list of world's billionaires has increased by 268 newcomers and there are in total 1,645 people enjoying this richest group. But still the first place is with US, as Bill Gates is back on top after four years by replacing telecom mogul Carlos Slim Helu of Mexico. Gates has topped the list with a net worth of $76 billions.
Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg

Among Indians, Mukesh Ambani was
followed by steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal at 52nd
