The Nifty 50 Best Stock Picks dates back to the 1960′s and 1970′s.  The Nifty 50 Best Stock Picks are composed mostly of large-cap blue-chip that outperformed the market during that era.  The underlining belief is that companies that are market leaders and have strong brands will continue to outperform the market over the long run and be safer investments.
 
Below we have made up what we believe is the modern Nifty 50 based on the original nifty 50 and also adding in some exposure to banking, energy, technology & Internet.
