hi guys just a piece of information about Sir Ratan Tata,my role model......sorry,indeed every indian's... hope after reading this u'll have much more respect for him and also for being an Indian.
Here is a Real Story of Ratan Tata.
have you ever wondered to know "What is the NetWorth of Ratan Tata"?
TATA Group is running 96 businesses and out of which 28 Companies are publically listed on the various stock exchanges.
Tata Group is world's top 50 Group according to Market capitalization and Reputation.
so, Have you ever thought why Ratan tata's name is not in the list of billionaire's club?
The reason is that, TATA Group's 96 companies are held by its main Company "TATA Sons" and the main owner of this TATA Sons is not Ratan Tata but various charitable organizations developed and run by TATA Group. Out of which JRD TATA Trust & Sir Ratan Tata Trust are the main. 65% ownership of TATA Sons which is the key holding company of the other 96 TATA Group Company is held by various charitable organizations.
So this 65% ownership ownership of Tatasons Limited is not reflected on Ratan Tata's personal Financial Statement but on the various charitable organizations. and this is the reason why Ratan Tata is not in the list of Billionaire club.
if we put this 65% ownership of Tata Sons in Ratan TATA's own personal financial statement then Ratan Tata's Net worth can become more than $ 70 billion. and that's much more than the Warren Buffet's Current Net Worth of $ 62 billion, the world's richest person according to Forbes
However, it doesn't mean that Ratan Tata is poor. In one interviews he had told the reporter that, "I have my own Capital". He is the chairman of Tata Group so obviously he earns lots of money every year as a bonus, remuneration and salary. However, Ratan Tata's Net worth is not $ 1 Billion.
He is not a billionaire on paper. but in reality he is the richest person of the world. His net worth in reality is more than Bill Gates and Warren Buffet.
SO the good thing about Tata Group is that, They do Charity out oftheir Money...they believes that business is not all about making money but also serving the society & nation.
And that is the reason TATA Group has generated so much of Goodwill over last 5 generations.
we should hope that atleast by seeing him,the so called bigwigs of indian corporate world like ambanis should get inspired and play their role in development of country,rather than increasing their own wealth.
