Four Indian women led by Arundhati Bhattacharya, Chairman of the county's largest lender, the State Bank of India (SBI), have been ranked in the latest Forbes list of 100 most powerful women in the world.
While Bhattacharya has been ranked 25th, others are Chanda Kochhar of ICICI Bank (40th), Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw of Biocon (77th) and Shobhana Bhartia of HT Media, which publishes the Hindustan Times (93rd).
The list represents seven categories or power bases: Billionaires, business, finance, media, politics, philanthropists and NGOs and technology.
Also on the list is the US-based Indian-origin Indra Nooyi, Chief Executive of PepsiCo.
On Arundhati Bhattacharya, the Forbes magazine said, she was facing her most challenging test yet with her bank, what with counting bad loans, which stood at $11 billion in December and caused net profit to plunge more than 60 per cent to $190 million in a recent quarter.
The magazine had a similar take on Kochhar.
On Mazumdar-Shaw, Forbes lauded her effort at launcing the initial public offering of Biocon's thriving research arm, Syngene International, last August, amid a volatile stock market.
Calling Shobhana Bhartia a "media baroness", the magazine took note of her serving as the chair and editorial director for India's largest listed media company, HT Media, the publishers of the English and Hindi language dailies Hindustan Times and HT Mumbai and the business paper Mint.

It looks possible now that Ms Arundhati Bhattacharya may even become the first woman RBI Governor in the history of India
