India Inc. on Global Acquisition Spree : As late as 2001, Indian outward investment was less than $1 billion. Instead, India, like all developing countries, was actively courting foreign investment into the country. By 2006, India had reached the tipping point. For the first time, Indian outward investment of $10 billion had outstripped foreign investment into India. At one point in time it was unimaginable that any Indian Company would pull off a multi-billion dollar acquisition of a company in ...more

This is a trade book out of HBS press that provides an overall profile of the major multinational corporations and business groups coming out of India at present.

The author is an academic who has lots of Indian hands-on experience as a consultant and board member, so he gets good access although perhaps at the price of dulling his critical sense a bit. The range of firms covered is good and includes a varie ...more
Nirmalay Kumar has done a wonderful service to the Indian Business Scenario by projecting some of the Top Indian MNCs (Made or in the process of making) on the Global Arena. Infy, Tata, Bharat Forge, Hindalco. M&M, Suzlon. It is a very systematic study that entails the journey from Strategic Ambition to Strategic Positioning of Indian Business leaders. The book also highlights the inherent strengths of the Indian Companies. I often regreted the serious ommision of Indian Company's case studi ...more

Interesting read. Nirmalya Kumar gives a decent background on some well known India companies. But What irks me is the lack of any in depth analyses as to why these firms have done so well. But overall it's a good read to gain an insight into the Indian business scene, especially before the B-School Interviews ;)
