This year’s America’s 400 richest people list has seen –unsurprisingly - Microsoft founder Bill Gates holding on to the top spot for the 20th year in a row. However, the list also listed three Indian-Americans.

The Indian-American list was topped by Bharat Desai & family, an outsourcer from Florida with a net worth of USD 2.2 billion. He places 252 in the 400 list. He was followed by Romesh T Wadhwani from California, a software manufacturer with a net worth of 2.1 billion and the final one is Vinod Khosla from California again, a venture capitalist with a net worth of USD 1.5 billion. Khosla was ranked 352 in the Forbes list.

This year's biggest dollar gainer and the second richest person at USD 58.5 billion was investor Warren Buffett.

Placed number three was Larry Ellison, Oracle co-founder with a net worth of USD 41 billion.

The second biggest gainer is Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg at USD 9.6 billion. He returns to his position at number 20.

Up from USD 1.7 trillion in 2012, the total wealth of the Forbes 2013 list of the richest people in America is USD 2 trillion, and the highest ever partly because of the strength of both the real estate and US stock markets.

Up from USD 4.2 billion last year, the average net worth of a member of the Forbes 400 is a staggering USD 5 billion, the highest till now.
