Abstract

Prior to liberalization of economy India could not feel the taste of operating business globally as of today. Today, many Indian companies are now known for its global operations, competitiveness, and for their global concerns. But, these are not equally applicable to all MNCs. Hence, the question arises; do all MNCs play similarly to have their global presence? In the tempest of the global business how Indian MNCs are demonstrating their global presence needs clear understanding.

The present paper aims to appreciate ‘Indian MNCs in the tempest of global businesses.’ The paper attempts to achieve three objectives, to highlight on the state of domestic and overseas presence of selected companies; to examine the similarity vs. dissimilarity of consciousness and directions of corporate readiness for future; to examine the convergence and divergence of core business development strategies of observed corporations.

The top Indian global corporations having overseas presence are considered as universe of the study; and 16 numbers of MNCs is the sample for final analysis. The study deployed exploratory research design, desk and text research based on the reviews of qualitative and quantitative information published either in records/reports or journals/magazines.
