Dalal Street Investment Journal (http://www.DSIJ.in), India's number one investment magazine, announces the winners of the Best Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) Awards, 2016. A flagship event, DSIJ PSU Award has been recognising the efforts of the PSUs in India for several years now. It is always a great experience to interact with the foremost business leaders who are shaping the future of India.
Indeed, the PSUs are central to the Indian growth story and the economic stability that India aspires for, which cannot be achieved without sound performance on the part of various PSUs. We salute the business leaders managing and shaping strategies for the resource-laden PSUs in India.
We conferred the first PSU Awards in 2009 in recognition of the achievements and contributions made by the PSUs. It has indeed been a proud association since then with the stalwarts of Corporate India who work under the pressures of competitive market environment, while also shouldering the responsibilities that come with being owned by the government.
We follow a ranking methodology for PSUs based on comprehensive financial parameters. We have evaluated data only of Maharatnas, Navratnas and Miniratnas, among CPSEs. Again, these companies are divided into manufacturing and non-manufacturing, depending on their areas of operation.
We ranked and awarded companies under three criteria i.e. Size, Most Efficient and Fastest Growing. These criteria were applied across all Maharatna/ Navratna/ Miniratna and were further split into Manufacturing and Non-Manufacturing categories.

Starting off as a 12-page cyclostyled stapled booklet in 1986, Dalal Street Investment Journal (DSIJ), the flagship product of the company, soon began to be looked upon as the gospel of stock market investing. At a time when quality financial and guidance was rare, the company (DSIJ) pioneered many 'firsts' to cater to the fast growing investor base of India. Over the years, its primary publication and other products have helped investors create and protect their wealth in the most meaningful manner, guiding both new investors and the experienced ones, not to forget the established traders, to choose the right stocks, avoid pitfalls and reap the benefits of high tides in the vast ocean of equity investments. It is this vast experience, study and toughening during all kinds of scams and markets ups and downs that gives DSIJ an unbiased balanced insight about the several unfolding events without getting swayed by temporary and misleading populous excitement.
