Showcasing the Performances of the Frontrunners Among Indian Corporates

India’s Top 500 Companies 2022

India’s Top 500 companies are not only the frontrunners of the country’s corporate sector but are, in fact, the driving force of our economy. Over the past two decades, the contribution of these Top 500 companies to the country’s GDP has grown 12 times even as their aggregate revenue increased 16 times since 1997. The Market cap of India’s Top 500 companies has grown an impressive 29 times from 1997 to 2022 and currently accounts for nearly 91% of the market cap of the Bombay Stock Exchange. Besides, these top 500 companies of India contribute to nearly 16% of its GDP and account for around 46% of the nation’s foreign exchange earnings and approximately 23% of its tax revenues. They spent at least Rs 153.3 bn in FY20 on CSR and have been providing employment to nearly 6.7 mn people across the country.

Keeping in mind the enormous scale and influence of these companies, Dun & Bradstreet has been tracking the success stories of the Top 500 countries for more than two decades through its premier publication, ‘India’s Top 500 Companies’. We are pleased to announce that this year’s edition of the publication will be released in June 2022.

In addition to the release of the publication, the event will also feature keynote addresses by our Chief Guest of Honour, international guests, and experts from across the industry, as well as key dignitaries from the Government of India and its ministries and agencies. Another highlight of the event is the ‘Corporate Awards Ceremony’, which aims to celebrate the success of leading performers in the industry.

Many senior delegates and luminaries including dignitaries from the Government of India, its Ministries, and allied agencies, MDs/CEOs/CFOs/CMOs, and other senior representatives of leading Indian corporates and multinational companies, Fortune 500 companies, banks, financial institutions, Foreign Institutional Investors, chambers of commerce, consultancy firms and stock exchanges etc are expected to attend the event. We are confident that the event would be an amazing experience and an opportunity to gain valuable insights and fresh perspectives from business experts and peers.
