In its annual inequality survey released on the first day of the World Economic Forum's online Davos Agenda summit, Oxfam India said that the wealth of the 10 richest in India is enough to fund school and higher education of children in the country for 25 years.

Oxfam India further said that an additional 1% tax on the richest 10% could provide the country with nearly 17.7 lakh extra oxygen cylinders.
