The donation will go toward areas like healthcare, education, and skill development, which will serve as the foundation for a ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’.

The Indian tycoon, who is turning 60, joins the ranks of global billionaires such as Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Warren Buffett in donating large portions of their fortunes to charity. According to Forbes’ Real Time Billionaires list, Adani’s net worth is nearly $95 billion.
