India trusts Ratan Tata, finds a survey

Ratan Tata, the Chairman of the Tata Group, is surely the most trusted name among the big bosses of Corporate India as is evident from a survey, called 'Who Do You Trust, India?'. Carried out by popular magazine Reader's Digest, the survey ranks Tata second only to former Indian President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam in a list of 100 powerful people. He even beats Narayan Murthy (fourth) of Infosys, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh (7th) and Azim Premji (10th) of IT giant, Wipro. In a sign that public spat on corporate issues does not generate much trust among general public and stakeholders alike, warring Ambani Brothers, Mukesh and Anil Ambani—engaged in a bitter corporate war—have been ranked way below the other prominent captains of the industry.
