Mumbai,  April 27, 2011: Dun & Bradstreet (D&B), the world’s leading provider of global business information, knowledge and insight, announced the Dun &  Bradstreet - Rolta Corporate Awards 2010. The awards felicitated 54 of India’s leading corporate names across sectors.

The  D&B-Rolta  Corporate  Awards  2010, closely tied to D&B’s study on India’s Top 500 Companies 2010, seek to recognize the twin virtues of size and growth in corporate India. Speaking at the Awards ceremony, Mr Kaushal Sampat, President & CEO – India D&B said “The consistent growth and resilience shown by corporate India is a  testimony  to  the strong economic fundamentals prevalent in the economy. The first three quarters of FY11 remained robust with a renewal in demand across  various  sectors.  The  same  has  been  aptly  covered in D&B’s India’s Top 500 Companies 2010, reflective of the changing trends in domestic economy;  thereby  helping  these  companies  to  achieve  a  healthy  19.4%  total  income growth in FY11 as compared to a meager 0.6% growth for the corresponding period in the previous year.

“The  publication  also saw 46 new companies making their debut in this edition of the Top 500. Of these, 8 were newly listed companies. I would like to congratulate the 46 new entrants to the Top 500 and all the award winners,” he added.Speaking at the awards ceremony, Mr. S. Hajara, Chairman and Managing Director said: “It  is  a great pride to accept the Dun & Bradstreeet - Rolta Corporate award 2010, for SCI. The Shipping Corporation of India Ltd, (SCI) a Navaratna Public  Sector  Undertaking  and a flagship organisation of our country is celebrating its Golden Jubilee Year and shall be completing 50 years of its dedicated service to the nation on 2nd October 2011. Therefore, receiving this award in the Golden Jubilee Year of SCI is of great significance.

2. SCI  is the largest shipping company in India holding about 34% of the shipping tonnage capacity of the country.  For the past fifty years, SCI has  been  providing  yeoman  service  to  the  country’s  economy  by meeting the ocean transportation requirements.  Today, the progress of Shipping  Corporation  of  India  has  become  a  synonym  for  the  progress  of country’s growth in the Shipping sector.
