Vijay Sekhar Sharma is a great leader and a well known person in India who was ranked as India’s youngest billionaire in the year 2017 with a net worth of $1.3 billion and also in that year he was featured in Time Magazine’s World’s 100 most Influential People.
But recently a news come out that Vijay Sekhar Sharma is no longer a billionaire and this news is a real fact.
As we know that last year in the month of November Paytm issued their stock, which was expected to bring the company to a new height, but that IPO was listed with the downfall as there were very few investors who agreed on investing in a loss making company. Therefore, the share price of Paytm dropped more than 70%, which is a very big number and the market capital of this company has decreased from 1 trillion to 4,0000 crore. And due to these downfalls of the prices of the shares Vijay Sekhar Sharma’s wealth stands now at $999 million which is a massive amount of fall from it’s peak of $2.35 billion (before the IPO).
