The awards aimed at recognizing leaders who have made a difference by carving a niche for themselves, thus creating an edge above their peers.

Speaking on the occasion, Pranab Mukherjee, Hon. Finance Minister said, “It gives me immense pleasure to be here at CNBC-TV18 ‘India Business Leader Awards 2010’. Let me start by congratulating CNBC-TV18 for the sixth edition of this wonderful initiative that recognizes exceptional entrepreneurial talent and leadership in diverse fields of our economy.
