India lost that status to France in January post Hindenburg’s report. India regained its position as Adani shares bounced back from losses and foreign funds accelerated purchases.

10 listed entities of Adani group gained around $15 billion in market value last week, reducing their losses after the Hindenburg report to $105 billion, down from a previous $153 billion.
