Shikha Sharma and Naina Lal Kidwai were ranked 37th and 40th, respectively on Fortune's international list for most powerful business women.

Shikha SharmaOn Chitra Ramkrishna, a newcomer to the International Power 50 list, Fortune said she has made history as the first woman to head an exchange in India.

"The National Stock Exchange lifer, who was part of the core five-member team selected by the government to create a screen-based exchange in 1993, has shattered the glass ceiling, making history as the first woman to head an exchange in India," Fortune said.

DuPont's Ellen Kullman is ranked third, followed by Lockheed Martin's Marillyn Hewson and Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg at the fourth and fifth positions.

Fortune said the list has been compiled broadly on the basis of four criteria - the size and importance of the business headed by the person in the global economy; the health and direction of the business; the arc of the business leader's career; and social and cultural influence.
