Forbes richest list 2014: Bill Gates tops in the world; Mukesh Ambani in India
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 is the year's biggest gainer, as his fortune jumped $15.2 billions to $28.5 billions. Coming to India, Mukesh Ambani again emerged as the richest among the ten other Indians in the Forbes list. Ambani with a net worth of $18.6 billions was at the 40th rank.

Among Indians, Mukesh Ambani was followed by steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal at 52nd rank, with an asset of $16.7 billions. Wipro's Azim Premji is following him at 61st rank with an asset of 15.3 billions. So, the top three Indians in the Forbes list are Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani, Steel Tycoon Lakshmi Mittal and Wipro's Azim Premji.

Other Indians in the list are: Dilip Shanghvi (82) $12.8billion, Shiv Nadar (102) $11.1 billion, Kumar Birla (191) $7 billions, Sunil Mittal (244) $5.7 billion, 281 rank is shared by Anil Ambani and Micky Jagtaini for $5 billions and Savitri Jindal and family (295) $4.9 billion.

This time US has once again topped the list with the tech boom and strong stock market with total of 492 billionaires, which is followed by China and Russia. But the good thing is wealth is not stagnant at these places, it is spreading to new places, as this time we can see the billionaires from Algeria, Lithuania, Tanzania and Uganda for the first time.
