about rising india

‘Rising India’, an incontrovertible truth, is also title of the most important event on the annual calendar for the Network18 group and one of most anticipated thought leadership forums in India. The News18 Rising India Summit is a showcase of India’s unbounded potential as well as a celebration of its significant achievements. Over two days of the summit, people of eminence and exceptional achievements from various walks of life come together in New Delhi to celebrate India’s successes and deliberate the future.

This year, the summit is taking place against the backdrop of the upcoming general elections, necessitating the theme ‘Beyond Politics: Defining National Priorities’.

By framing it as beyond politics, we aim to put the spotlight on issues beyond the proximate and train the discourse on the larger message – that of a Rising India and its inevitability.

Like last year, the Summit will host a galaxy of notables – top policy makers, Union Cabinet Ministers, Chief Ministers, entertainment icons, global visionaries, economists, writers and corporate leaders. Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi will be the Chief Guest and deliver the Summit Keynote.
