The new Uttar Pradesh assembly boasts of no less than 271 crorepatis - a whopping 67 per cent of its strength - according to a study by the Association for Democratic Reforms and National Election Watch.

When the House was formed in 2007, only 124 MLAs (30.8 per cent) were valued beyond Rs.1 crore.

With net assets worth Rs.56.89 crore, Nawab Kazim Ali Khan - the Congress MLA from Suar - is the richest of the new lot, followed by the Bahujan Samaj Party's Shah Alam (Mubarakpur, Rs.54.44 crore).

Only six of the new MLAs have declared assets of less than Rs.5 lakh.
