Mr. Nilekani said that 27 years ago, India had mainly three types of companies, large multinational companies, family-owned firms and public sector companies.

Its turnover today was close to $4.5 billion. “We had a vision to create a global and globally competitive company that would last for a long time.”


Mr. Viswanathan said that with a population of 1.1 billion, higher education should be accessible to all.
