A billionaire beggar, who never spent.

India learned about its richest beggar in 2015 — this isn't the first time a beggar has turned out to be wealthy.

He will beg at the congested Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) or Azad Maidan.


Bharat Jain, India's wealthiest beggar, was discovered in 2015, earning $988 to $1,000 a month by begging.

Burju Chandra Azad, a resident of Govandi, died in an accident while attempting to cross a railway road, according to news agency ANI

After identifying him with the aid of hawkers and beggars, a team of Government Railway Police visited his shanty near Govandi and discovered Rs 1.77 lakh in coins in gunny bags and buckets filled with tarpaulin and over millions in his bank account.


“We were able to identify him thanks to documents discovered at his home, and we discovered that his family lives in Rajasthan.


According to the news agency, Saste said, "We have contacted his son, who is also a nominee of his fixed deposit."

NK Saste, Senior Police Inspector-Vashi GRP, said Azad used to live alone and his neighbors had no idea who he was.
