Top 100 powerful CEO’s in India

Ratan Tata has done it again – He is the Most Powerful CEO in India. The Economic Times Corporate Dossier magazine has not only voted Mr. Ratan Tata as India Inc’s Most Powerful CEO, second year running, but also India Inc’s CEO of the Decade.

Ratan-Tata

The Top 4 CEOs keep their positions as they had previous year as well – Mukesh Ambani is on 2nd position followed by NR Narayan Murthy (I am not sure as he is not CEO of Infosys anymore) and Anil Ambani takes the 4th position.

The Biggest Jump however has been made by Sunil Mittal, from 9th position last year to 5th this year. I think one of the main reasons has been his aggressiveness in pursuing global acquisitions for Bharti Airtel. In last 12 months, Bharti has made foray in Large African as well as Bangladesh Telecom Market. Bharti Airtel now stands to be the 5th largest telecom company in the world.

Azim Premji (6th), KM Birla (7th), Rahul Bajaj (8th), Anand Mahindra (9th) and Vijay Mallya (10th) round up the top ten positions in the Powerful CEO’s in India.

    Pledge: "Within 5 Years I will be one among the 50 TOP CEOs in India".

  20. TATA IS MY MOST FAVOURITE COMPANY.I HAD ONCE READ THE HISTORY OF MAKING OF TATA GROUP.IT JUST MADE ME FEEL PROUD AS AN INDIAN.I APPRECIATE TATA’s BECAUSE OF MY OWN EXPERIENCE.OVER THE TIME I OBSERVED THAT TATA’s HAVE WORKED FOR THE INDIANS SELFLESSLY.TODAY I BELIEVE THAT THEY HAVE HAD THE FILL OF HAVING MONEY.AND ALWAYS GIVE TO THE PUBLIC BACK.I HAVE NEVER READ IN PAPERS WHICH TATA HAS GIVEN AN AEROPLANE TO THEIR WIFE ON THEIR BIRTHDAYS OR MADE AN EXCEPTIONALLY MASSIVE PLACE TO LIVE, WHERE ONLY 4 OR 5 PEOPLE WILL LIVE.THIS IS HOARDING.WHERE AS A COMMON MAN IS STRUGGLING TO HAVE ONE FLAT OF EVEN 1000SQ.FT. WHILE CONTRIBUTING TOWARDS THE ECONOMIC GROWTH OF MUMBAI, TRAVELLING IN TRAINS, BEARING ALL THE HARDSHIPS ALONG WITH INFLATION.THE RICH AND THE SLUM PEOPLE ARE ENJOYING THE FRUITS OF HAVING A HOME. COMING BACK TO TATAS THEY ARE VERY DOWN TO EARTH PEOPLE.WE ALL SHOULD BE PROUD OF THEM.

  27. Thanks for the information i inspired from above ceo’s

  28. Tata group have liences to make steel till 2017 but why they do salt mfg

  29. mr Ravi kumar i am ambadas u sent me about BHEL CEO , B, P, RAO Name but who are u

  30. I know the personal detail of BHEL – CEO – B.P. RAO

  31. Though the positions of the Tata and the Ambanis are justified, it is nothing but funny to find the CEO of Tata tea more powerful than IOC, BPCL, Gail and HPCL. It is criminal to hold BPCL CEO more powerful than IOC CEO. Anybody with knowledge of petroleum industry will know the standing of IOC over other petroleum Cos.

  32. some CEO’s are vary power full one of the ambani

  33. top 100’s ceo’s really well known because they r inspire to me
