In the pecking order of the world's most valuable brands, Tata is now ahead of the likes of Swiss confectionery-to-foods giant Nestle, consumer electronics major Hitachi, UK retailer Tesco and oil major Chevron, according to Business Standard.

After entering UK-based valuation firm BrandFinance's coveted list of top-50 global brands two years ago, Tata has climbed up the ladder with a valuation of $18.16 billion - about a fifth of the combined market capitalisation of its 29 listed companies, it says.

Let's take a look at best brands in the world, including five from India, based on BrandFinance's ranking.
