The survey, conducted by Equitymaster, saw The Tata group retaining its top position with 4,490 (31.83%) readers voting them to be The Most Trustworthy Corporate Group of 2013. This is fourth time in a row that The Tata Group has come out as a clear winner.

Aditya Birla Group (6.44%), Infosys (5.05%) and Mahindra Group (4.28%) took the fourth, fifth and sixth position respectively.

Keeping with the current times, this year Equitymaster also included “None of Above” as one of the options and 4.14% of the total voters opted for it to showing the complete lack of trust investors have in these businesses.

Mukesh Ambani Group (9th), with 3.58% votes, was placed 2 ranks above The Anil Ambani Group (11th) that got 2.72% of the total votes cast.

Godrej (3.49%), DLF (2.50%) and Vedanta Group (2.43%) were the new addition to the list this year and they outperformed the regulars like Bharti Airtel (2.19%) and Essar Group (1.94%).

On the final result, Rahul Goel, CEO of Equitymaster, said. “The Tata Group has always been a respected and trustworthy name. So, it’s no surprise that it has taken the top position again this year. It’s the 4th consecutive win for the group and I hope they live up to the trust that the Indian investors have put in them.”

He further added, “With our ever-increasing readership, we soon aim to have this poll to the be the benchmark to gauge investors’ trust in Indian Corporates and we hope the low ranking corporate groups from this year would work towards winning the trust of their investors and improve their ranking next year.”
