The chief guest for the evening was Honorable Minister for Commerce and Industry Kamal Nath, who gave away the awards.

The winners have been put through a rigorous KPMG methodology to make the final cut. The evening also saw the release of Business Today’s special issue on India’s Best Banks, by Nath and The India Today Group editor-in-chief Aroon Purie.
