    NEW DELHI: Avenue Supermarts’ founder Radhakishan Damani has become the fifth richest individual in India amid the ongoing rally in the stock price of D-Mart's promoter firm.

    Shares of Avenue Supermarts scaled a fresh all-time high of Rs 2,559 on February 13 after the company announced a share sale for institutional investors on February 5. In another development, the company on Thursday said its promoters will sell up to a 2.28 per cent stake through an offer for sale (OFS) that will fetch as much as Rs 3,032.5 crore.
