Bangalore, November 3, 2004

Infosys Technologies Limited made a winning sweep in the Businessworld Most Respected Companies Awards announced last weekend. The company remained India’s Most Respected Company – a place it has held since 2001; it topped the special categories of Most Ethical and Most Globally Competitive Companies; and was the Most Respected Company in IT sector category, topping all nineteen parameters of the survey.

The Businessworld Most Respected Companies list is based on a rigorous nationwide peer perception survey. All companies featured in the survey were ranked on the basis of a set of parameters such as ethics, response to customer needs and global competitiveness.

The launch of Infosys Consulting Inc to create a new paradigm in consulting, restructuring of the company into Independent Business Units (IBUs) fuelling multiple growth engines, the triple - horizon strategic planning and the risk management processes of the company have been cited as strategic initiatives that gave Infosys an edge over the rest.

The Survey spanned across eight cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkatta, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and Pune, covering over 1000 senior managers across the country.
