​India Inc's toughest and smartest

A power-packed audience witnessed this year’s most effective companies and leaders receive India’s premiere corporate awards.

The Economic Times Awards for Corporate Excellence, 2019, was addressed by Union Home Minister Amit Shah and hosted interactive sessions with Union Minister of Finance and Corporate Affairs Nirmala Sitharaman and Union Minister of Railways and Commerce & Industry Piyush Goyal.

The winners were decided by a star-studded jury who voted for quality growth, corporate governance and long term vision.
