Thapar’s Avantha Group, which has interests in power generation, paper, food and chemicals, showed revenues of £3bn in 2013 but the third-generation Indian businessman has since sold off parts of it to cut his debt. While his Crompton Greaves operation is worth more than £480m on India’s stock market, he has not appeared in the Indian rich list since 2012. Allowing for debt, we keep London-based Thapar, 56, at £450m.
