The Indian business tycoon and investor – whose net worth is $16.2 billion – has been listed twice among the 100 most influential people by TIME Magazine, and has become the first Indian to sign up for The Giving Pledge, a campaign led by Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. The chairman of Wipro – one of the global leaders in the software industry – already gave away 25% of his personal wealth to charity, and more than $2 billion will be used for education programs in Premji’s home country.
