Revenues of the company is at 351 Billion Dollars.The company had been on the top of the list from 2002-2005 and now back in 2007. Five Indian companies have improved their rankings in the list, IOC, Reliance Industries, BPCL, HPCL and ONGC.SBI which made a debut last year has improved it's ranking by three positions.The news item also adds that china has added four new companies to the list taking the total to 24.

Wal-Mart has tied-up with the Bharti Group and is planning an entry into the Indian market. Is it something that Indian consumers should look forward to or will it create too big a threat to the way Indian retail has been operating till now????
