IT’S ALWAYS A GOOD thing when lists like the Fortune India Most Powerful Women (MPW) in business see churn. After all, in a country of over 1.3 billion, there will be so many, many women who are making a mark in their chosen fields in the world of business, across sectors. And it’s only natural that they will, at some point or other, figure on the list as they grow their businesses and move onward in their journey. This year is one such year of churn: There are as many as 14 new faces, from a wide variety of sectors, and they are success stories in their own right. Whether it is Anupriya Acharya, CEO of media buying firm Publicis Media India who is steering the company through the new digital media age; or Chetna Gala Sinha, founder of Mann Deshi Mahila Sahakari Bank, a bank for rural women; or Falguni Nayar, the astute investment banker-turned-entrepreneur who has built a successful cosmetics business in Nykaa despite intense competition, these new faces give us hope that despite the enormous challenges which women face at work and at home, there are so many who are successfully breaking barriers and forging their own paths to success. Now in its eighth year, the Fortune India MPW list has 19 names that have figured in all editions, a sign of their continuing success and resilience as names to reckon with in the world of business. Topping the list this year is ace lawyer Zia Mody, whose legal acumen and clout in the world of business is legendary. Mody is also among the 19 who have been on the list in all eight years. Read on to find out final 50 names……….
