India's Top 500 Companies 2016


The publication ?India?s Top 500 Companies 2016? serves as a testimony to the resilience of Corporate India and their critical role in driving the economic growth of the nation. FY15 was characterized by macroeconomic improvement and consequent turnaround in the investor sentiments. This was primarily attributed to government?s policy actions on environmental clearances; mining licenses and a push to some stalled projects which aided the growth prospects. Despite the positive domestic economic indicators, factors arising due to volatile external environment continued to exert severe stress on the performance of India?s Top 500 companies. An analysis of the Top 500 companies across more than 50 sectors can be treated as an indicator of the growth trends of India?s leading businesses.

Following are some of the key highlights in this publication:

Dun & Bradstreet also analyzed the recent performance of 498 companies from India?s Top 500 companies based on availability of information for first three quarters of FY16 (Apr ? Dec 2015) ?

The government has implemented a ?reform-to-transform? agenda which is a series of incremental, yet collectively meaningful measures to spur economic growth. These measures jointly with regulatory policies are expected to accelerate the growth of Indian economy. As this dynamic economy continues to evolve, Dun & Bradstreet is committed to track India?s corporate growth story through its editions of ?India?s Top 500 Companies?.
