The top 5 cities accounts for 86% of top 100 real estate rich list entrants in India. A majority of estate developers are discreet, so for every entrepreneur who we have found, we may have missed 2.

The cut off of INR 300 crores is surprisingly low for a big country like India.” says Rupert Hoogewerf, Chairman and Chief Researcher, Hurun Report Global.ENDS
