  36. 36. Manufacturer and seller of Traditional clothes in India. Disliked by a major chunk of western-wearing people. Still holds the position of top 20 sellers in India.
  37. 37. SBI launched a 'crorepati only' branch in Hyderabad. The only criterion required to open an account in the branch is simple: a minimum opening balance of Rs 1 crore. That too only if you have an invitation from the bank.
