Reliance, which is one of the most diversified group in India, is the second most valuable brand with a value of USD 6.24 billion. Reliance split into two entities about 6 years and Mukesh Ambani led Reliance has been able to maintain the steady growth, but the other entity led by Mukesh’s younger brother Anil Ambani has found the going tough. The Reliance Communication brand value is pegged at USD 988 million with it being 18th most valuable brand.
India’s biggest Telecom company Airtel is the 3rd most valued brand in India. It’s value is fractionally lesser than Reliance Industries at USD 6.22 billion.

HDFC Bank (USD 3.27 bln) and ICICI Bank (USD 2.57 bln) are the 2 other banks in the Top 10 ranking.
