S. Gopalakrishnan of Infosys and Y.C. Deveshwar of ITC were the biggest losers on the two lists, respectively, in terms of citations.

Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee and commerce minister Anand Sharma topped both lists.

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.
