Eligibility Criteria Small and medium enterprises are defined as companies with FY21 standalone annual turnover between ` 5 Crore – 250 Crore.

Shortlisting Process • Dun & Bradstreet has reached out to SMEs across the country through multiple channels such as email campaign, online medium, industry associations and councils, Dun & Bradstreet’s internal database, etc. • Dun & Bradstreet has also used the financial information available on secondary sources such as Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Exchange Websites, and other reliable Government websites. • Through this process, we have sought financial details of SMEs for FY21, FY20, and FY19 through annual reports, audited statements, etc. In addition to financial information, companies were requested to provide qualitative information in the form of presentations, certifications, client testimonials and other documents to ‘Make their Own Case’ for excellence. • Dun & Bradstreet used a proprietary model (employing a combination of quantitative and qualitative parameters) to analyze various details available and shortlist the ‘listings’ and ‘probable winners’ across various award categories. Selection of Award Winners The shortlisted probable winners were duly evaluated by an eminent panel of industry leaders and experts at a jury meeting. The final award winners were selected by the jury panel on the basis of multiple factors of excellence, during their discussion, and were agreed upon by mutual consensus. The publication, ‘Leading SMEs of India 2022’ , profiles 13 SME award winners. The profiles of the award winners comprise their business operations and notable achievements that will serve as an inspiration to other aspiring entrepreneurs. These companies are featured in a section titled “Profiles of AwardWinners” . AwardWinners profiled in the publication has been allotted a unique identification number (D-U-N-S ® - Data Universal Numbering System). This will help readers locate and obtain full-fledged information reports on these companies from the Dun & Bradstreet database. This publication and the awards are tributes to the SME sector acknowledging the resilient performance of the SME sector in today’s volatile economy. This, we believe, will encourage other emerging SMEs to showcase their contribution through their active participation in our future editions. We would be pleased to receive your invaluable feedback and suggestions, which we can incorporate in the next edition. Your satisfaction remains our major goal in Dun & Bradstreet’s journey towards excellence. METHODOLOGY Dun & Bradstreet
