India has been one of the fastest growing economies of the world at the moment. Indian economy has been consistently growing above the rate of 8% for the past few years. Indian corporates and business houses have played a critical role in the success story of Indian economy. In the pre-1991 era, i.e. before economic liberalization, Indian companies were operating in protected environment and were characterized by mediocrity and inefficiency. But the adoption of economic liberalization unleashed the latent entrepreneurial talent of Indian entrepreneurs and Indian companies adapted wonderfully to the environment of cut-throat competition. Today, many 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 a vital role in the success of Indian economy.
