The list showcases a year of accomplishments by the region's female entrepreneurs, recognising the inroads women are making in the business world.

Goenka said, “It is an honour to be a part of the Forbes Asia's Power Businesswomen List. It is indeed humbling and encourages me to press on further and continue to do things that I so dearly love. Congratulations to all the other women on the list - we can together make a difference.”

Under her leadership the revenue and earnings of Welspun India are up several folds, with net profit of $81 million on revenue of $790 million in the year ended March 2015.
