BT-Carma CEO watch

India's and the world's most talked-about CEOs in January.

Print Edition: March 7, 2010

The Chairman of SBI, O.P. Bhatt, hogged the attention of media in January 2010, making him the most written-about honcho of the month. Bhatt's assertion, after the RBI's decision to hike cash reserve ratio that interest rates will remain stable till June, got wide media coverage. And after dominating the headlines in November and December, the Ambanis faded from the limelight somewhat as the media reduced its coverage of the standoff between the brothers.
