the 1970s in Mumbai. In 1983, he set up a small copper cable manufacturing unit. In 1998, his company, now called Sterlite, cashed in on the
telecommunications boom in India, supplying copper cables to telecom companies, and raked in Rs 20 crore in profits.
Today 53-year-old Agarwal is
230th on the Forbes list of billionaires with a net worth of US $3 billion. Vedanta Resources owns 68.1 per cent shares in Sterlite. Though its
principal operations are located in India, Vedanta also operates in Australia, Armenia and Zambia.
The company is India's biggest zinc producer, its
second largest copper producer, and number three in aluminium.The multinational's aluminium business currently comprises VAL (still in the project
