Fifty-eight Indian companies featured on the 2018 Forbes ‘Global 2000’ list of the world’s largest public sector companies, the same number as last year. Banks and oil firms dominated among the Indian companies on the list of the world’s major, most powerful, and valuable publicly listed companies.
Forbes, which released the list on Wednesday, uses a mix of four metrics to create its list—sales, profits, assets and market value. Equal weightage is given to all four metrics to rank companies according to size. For this, the latest-12-months’ financial data is used.
