Methodology

The GROHE Hurun India Real Estate Rich List 2020 is a snapshot of wealth as of 31 December 2020.  This is a supplementary list to the Hurun India Rich List 2020. While we have tried to limit the valuation to primary ownership in Indian real estate businesses registered with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. For instance, the Godrej group is a conglomerate with diverse business interests; Adi Godrej has a valuation of INR 32,400 crore on the Hurun India Rich List 2020. However, on the GROHE Hurun India Real Estate Rich List 2020, we have considered the valuation of Godrej Properties for Adi Godrej, which would translate to INR 4,840 crore.

Valuing the wealth of India’s richest is as much an art as it is a science. There may be inadvertent omissions, but we believe the GROHE Hurun India Real Estate Rich List 2020 to be the most comprehensive attempt to identify India’s top real estate entrepreneurs and to measure the value of their holdings. Our team of researchers has cross-checked information with entrepreneurs, industry experts, journalists, bankers, regulators, and government filings, as well as past databases. For non-listed companies, our valuation was based on a comparison with their listed equivalents using prevailing industry multiples such as Price to Earnings, Price to Sales, EV to Sales, EV to EBITDA, Net Asset Value and other methodologies including Discounted Cash Flow. We have used the latest available financial reports as the basis for arriving at the valuation.

We have split wealth among siblings; for companies like Godrej Properties, we have split the net worth across five individuals.

 

Grohe Hurun Real Estate Rich List has been compiled based on the valuation of real estate business owned by the entrepreneurs; The personal liabilities or debt of the entrepreneur is not considered for the net worth calculation.
