World-Class Companies to drive India to a $5 Trillion Economy

India needs world-class companies and modern infrastructure to drive it to $5 trillion economies in the next five years. Focus on creating world-class corporations is a must to achieve the goal. No doubt, India has been achieving a fantastic growth rate of about seven percent for the last 20 or 25 years. This is the only major economy to do so besides China. India has crossed a long way in the last 25 years octupling its GDP from 333 billion in 1994 to about 2.8 trillion or 2800 billion in 2918-19. Some of the world-class companies have contributed a lot to achieve this GDP levels.

Big corporations account for billions of dollars’ turnover. Hence, these companies contribute significantly to GDP data of a country. The scene is no different in India and several big and world-class companies are driving India to a $5 Trillion Economy. However, Indian companies are much smaller in size compared to the US, China or Japan. Reliance Industries, the number one company in India has ranked 57 in the world according to the Forbes list. Only a few other companies could manage their place in Global 500. Looking into the scenario, India has to put many efforts to increase the number of these world-class big companies and also to increase their sizes. Also, a World-Class Infrastructure is required to support these industries. A holistic approach can drive India to a $5 trillion economy.

Ten biggest World-Class Companies in India

Presently, Indian Oil Corporation, a PSU is the No.1 company in India with a revenue of $66 billion. It is an Oil and Gas sector company that employs 35000 people.  There are three more companies, all public sector units, in the Oil and Gas sector, in the top ten list. Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited, No. 6 in the list has an annual revenue of $29 billion and 13,000 employees in its role. Number 7 is  Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited with revenue of $27 billion employing more than 10,000 people. Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited is in 8th position in the list having revenue of 19 billion whereas the number of employees is about 34 thousand.

Number three in the list is State Bank of India, again a PSU, having a revenue of $48 billion and employing 264 thousand people in its list. As the name suggests it is in the business of banking and finance. This is the largest public sector bank in India. Government-owned  Coal India Limited working for coal mining stands 9th having 17 billion revenue. However, it stands second in the number of employees with more than 313 thousand in its role. This is the story of government-owned or public sector units. As of now, India has a mixed economy and role of PSUs cannot be ignored in the economy. These companies have been contributing to the economy, and certainly, driving India to a $5 trillion GDP.

Private sector companies in the top ten list

The number of employees is significant low, only 350. However, the role of these private sector world-class companies cannot be ignored in scaling up Indian GDP to $5 trillion.

World-Class Infrastructure to drive India to a $5 Trillion Economy

India was lagging far behind in infrastructure even in the recent past. Atal Behari Bajpayee, Prime Minister of India has started developing road infrastructure (1994-2004) and joined four major metropolitan cities with his golden quadrilateral project. Later on, Nitin Gadkari, in Modi 1.0 has doubled the speed of road construction. Prime Minister Modi gave a slogan of developing Highways and iWays. Now, BJP has promised of investing 100 lakh crore or Rs 100 trillion in infrastructure in its election manifesto 2019. BJP has a triumphing majority in the Loksabha election 2019 and we are hoping for speedy implementation of infrastructural projects. Happen this, India will have a world-class infrastructure that will, in turn, lead to many more world-class companies. We can, as a result, see a $5 trillion economy India by 2024.
