Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee has remained the top newsmaker in March, both in Indian and global media. While ICICI Bank chief executive and managing director Chanda Kochhar and State Bank of India (SBI) chairman OP Bhatt saw their coverage surge the most, former Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) chairman CB Bhave saw the maximum decline in coverage.

The Mint Influencers Index is a monthly objective measure based on media analysis by Dow Jones Insight, which tracks these leaders, looking at the volume of media citings for each of them as a proxy for their rising or waning influence. The assumption is that visibility and share of voice is good for them and their companies. In the case of global media, the index is collectively a surrogate for the growing or waning interest in India.
