Speaking on the occasion, Adil Zainulbhai, Chairman, Network18, said, “We are proud to carry on the tradition of honouring remarkable business leaders, who through ingenuity, innovation and foresight, induce positive changes in an evolving corporate world. We believe that such individuals not only further the cause of their respective businesses but also inspire and propel the growth of India’s economy, which is critical to improve the lives of India’s 125 crore citizens.”
CNBC with the Asia Business Leader Awards (ABLA) pioneered the business leadership awards to recognise leaders who create and sustain entrepreneurial initiatives, develop best practices and carve out powerful businesses in the global economy. CNBC-TV18 has carried on this tradition in India with the India Business Leader Awards (IBLA).

We at CNBCTV18 believe these are the pillars which will help drive India towards sustainable and equitable growth. This year, IBLA will put the spotlight on the imperatives to ensure India delivers on its economic promise by 2020.”
The awards adhere to a transparent and robust selection process that includes the Editorial Board drawing up a list of nominees, further leading to the final selection of winners by a Jury comprising a select group of distinguished personalities.
