In a recent affidavit submitted to the Election Commission, it was disclosed that Home Minister Amit Shah and his wife Sonal Shah’s investments in the stock market have seen a substantial increase of 71% over the past five years, culminating at INR 37.4 crores by April 15, 2024. This figure represents 57% of their total assets, with the remainder being invested in savings accounts, mutual funds, gold, and National Savings Schemes.

Diversified Investment Portfolio

The couple’s investments are spread across 242 companies, displaying no clear pattern, which suggests a diversified investment strategy. Remarkably, only ten of these companies have seen investments exceeding INR 1 crore each, accounting for 43% of their total listed company investments.

Additionally, smaller investments have been made in Bandhan Bank, State Bank of India, and its subsidiaries.
