Gautam Adani Family

Gautam Adani was born to Shantaben and Shantilal Adani in a Jain family. His parents migrated from Tharad’s small town and have 7 more children with Mahasukhbhai being the eldest. The family was middle class and Shantilal used to work as a textile merchant to run his household.

Gautam Adani Family


Gautam Adani, the industrialist is happily married to Priti Adani. She is a dentist, businesswoman, and philanthropist by profession. Priti is the chairwoman of the multinational company with a current net worth of around $1 billion.

The duo has two sons, Jeet and Karan. Karan Adani is the older son and also acts as the Chief Executive Officer at Adani Ports and SEZ Ltd. The son is also the working directory of Adani Airport Holdings Ltd.

Pranav Adani who is Gautam’s nephew is the current director of Adani Enterprises.


Gautam Adani completed his schooling at the Sheth Chimanlal Nagindas Vidyalaya School and began his bachelor’s at Gujarat University. But he dropped out in the 2nd year to pursue his career as a businessman. In 1978 Gautam moved from Gujarat to Mumbai to work as a diamond sorter under the guidance of the Mahendra Brothers.

Gautam Adani Profession

After working as a diamond sorter, Gautam moved back to Ahmedabad as his brother Mahasukhbhai bought a plastic unit. Gautam handled the operations there and it acted as his gateway to the world of trading. By 1985, the industrialist had started his import business on a small scale.

Gautam Adani Profession

Over the years, Gautam Adani expanded his trading business and started handling agriculture, metals, textiles, and other products.

In 1995, Adani got his hands on the Mundra Port contract through which the first jetty was set up. Although earlier, this contract fell under Mundra Port, it was later transferred to Adani Ports and SEZ Ltd. Today this company is the biggest multi-port private operator in the country.

Gautam Adani also established a power generation company in 2006 and won the biggest solar bid in the world by 2020. It was worth $6 billion and that bid paved way for Adani Green – a project that would install an 8000 MV power plant.

Gautam Adani Source Of Income

The major chunk of Gautam Adani’s income comes from his stake in the Adani Ports (60%). He also holds 75% of shares in Adani Transmissions, Adani Enterprises, Adani Gas, and Adani Power.

In 2021, it was revealed that the industrialist earned around Rs. 1,612 cr. per day.


2023 didn’t start on a positive note for the business and philanthropist; Gautam Adani. According to Hindenburg Research, it has been established that Gautam Adani’s company is the reason why India isn’t growing as a country.

A finding of 2 years was published by Hindenburg that stated that Adani has been a part of accounting malpractices and manipulation in the market. The report also suggested that the investors were holding a short position in the company. After these accusations, the shares and bonds of the Adani group saw a huge decline in their value.

Fighting back, Adani denied all the allegations of Hindenburg and said that all these findings were due to selective misinformation and malicious intent.

After the report came out to the public, it didn’t even take three days for the shares of Adani companies to lose $48 billion.

He even released a reply of 413 pages for Hindenburg. After that, the shares of Adani Enterprises took a jump of over 7%.
