The list includes very old as well as very new companies — in Hurun India’s own words, “spanning from the venerable 235-year-old EID-Parry to startups founded as recently as 2021”.

61 new companies made their debut on this year’s list. Industrial products sector led with 16 new entrants, followed by financial services with 10. The presence of women on the boards of 437 of these companies was a big highlight.

Startups in the list cumulatively lost Rs 4 lakh crore led by Byjus, Dealshare, and Pharmeasy. Not all was gloomy for Indian startups during the year, though. The cumulative value of the 6 unicorns listed on Indian exchanges gained Rs 62,837 crore — a marked improvement compared to the valuation loss of Rs 1,66,013 crore in 2022.

According to Hurun, list reflects the multifaceted nature of India’s economy as the companies are spread across a large number of sectors — from finance and healthcare to consumer goods, IT, and automotive, with leading companies like HDFC Bank, Sun Pharma, ITC, and Tata Motors — “exemplifying the breadth and depth of India’s industrial prowess”.
