I work as Special Correspondent, Companies & Regulations for Reuters in New Delhi. I focus on breaking corporate stories across sectors and also work on deeply-reported & investigative projects. I closely track policy changes in India, how foreign and domestic businesses react to them and lobby for changes, as well as their impact on broader trade ties. I joined Reuters in 2008.

Though I write across sectors, I’ve in the past written about the changing technology landscape, antitrust investigations, e-commerce companies, tobacco giants and several other business disputes. In 2017, I worked on a global investigative project at Reuters – The Philip Morris Files — which was one of the biggest tobacco industry leaks ever. The project won Overseas Press Club of America’s Malcolm Forbes Award for best international business news reporting and India’s most prestigious journalism honour, the Ramnath Goenka award.

Recently, I worked on a Reuters investigation into Amazon’s business practices in India which was based on hundreds of company documents dated between 2012 and 2019. The story revealed Amazon gave preferential treatment to a small group of sellers in India, publicly misrepresented its ties with them and used them to circumvent increasingly tough regulatory restrictions.
