A strong double-digit recovery in revenue and profit in 2021-22 (FY22)   ended a three-year growth drought for India’s top 1,000 listed (BS1000) firms. Their combined revenue was up 33.9 per cent year-on-year (YoY) in FY22, while aggregate net profit was up 72.5 per cent.

In contrast, combined revenues had contracted for two successive years in 2020-21 (FY21) and 2019-20 (FY20). They grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of just 2.2 per cent from 2017-18 (FY18) to FY21.

Similarly, aggregate net profit was down 42.4 per cent YoY in FY20, followed by an earnings recovery in FY21 and FY22.
