Companies in India

India has been one of the fastest growing economies of the world currently. Indian economy has been constantly growing above the rate of 8% for the past few years. Indian corporates and business houses have played an important role in the success story of Indian economy. Before economic liberalization, Indian companies were operating in protected environment and were characterized by inefficiency and mediocrity. But the implementation of economic liberalization unleashed the latent entrepreneurial talent of Indian entrepreneurs and Indian companies adapted wonderfully to the environment of cut-throat competition.

Today, several of Indian companies are at par with the best in the world. Quite a few of them rank among the list of Fortune 500 companies. The recent acquisition of some of the global giants by top Indian companies is a testimony of the coming of age of the Indian Industry. We have put together a brief profile of the top 50 Indian companies. We do not claim that these are the top 50 Indian corporates, but they are well-known names of India Inc and have played an imperative role in the success of Indian economy.

The number of Indian companies has increased at a very striking rate. It has been observed that more and more international companies are willing to have their place of business in India. It is either independently that these foreign companies are entering India or through a partnership or with building up a subsidiary of such companies. With more liberalized rules and regulations by the Government, more and more companies saw the business scenario getting better.

These have made a positive impact on the India company scenario and augmented the credibility of the India corporate sector. The future of India Company actually looks very promising indeed.
