  • Raj Tiwari

    Who ever made this list has no knowledge on singers. Where is SPB? where is Chitra ji? Cant believe their names are not even written any where. Alka Yanik is positioned number 6..! No way Shreya is better than Alka.

  • RAAJ


  • Π*RONy#

    I think that this list is wrong……… Because some best singer’s name is not here.

  • venu

    Yesu das and SPB won the most national awards . They should be on the top

  • mohit sharma

    without Arijit Singh is not complete this list

  • Ridha Fazal

    wheres arjit singh, kishore kumar, SPB, KJ yesudas, Mukesh kumar. where are all these people. and shreya ghoshal definetly shudnt b at the bottom . such a messed up list.

  • Chiranjeev Singh


  • Chiranjeev Singh


  • Tirtha Chaudhury

    Where is jubin nautiyal

  • Sumaiya

    Where is Arijit Singh?

  • Sanjoy

    He is absolutely mad who prepare this list without kishore kumar. Kumar sanu,other great man says, kishore kumar greatest singer of all indian singer.he is world’s no 1 singer.

  • Maheshwor

    Without ARIJIT SINGH it is absolutely wrong…. ARIJIT SINGH is better than all of the above.

  • sammy

    Who on earth made this list? Alka yagnik, although absolutely one of the best female singers india has, and an absolute jewel, does not rank higher than shreya ghoshal. Shreya has proven to be more versatile and a superior singer than alka.

  • Rachit Uyyala

    what is this SPB should be at the top of the liist

    • Suvetha

      Yes true

  • methun

    See SP Balasubramanyam was the, and will be the greatest singer forever.

  • Santosh

    This list maker is foolish. Kishore da was a versatile genius singer. He was a gem of music. The list is wrong without kishore da, Kishore da was guru of guru. Others like udit narayan, kumar sanu, Shaan, mohit, sonu nigam, Are chele ke chele hai.
    Throwing out gem is a foolish thing and a part of lack of music knowledge. Without kishore da music is incomplete. He is a god of music.

  • Santosh

    Kishore da was guru of guru. Others like udit narayan, kumar sanu, Shaan, mohit, sonu nigam,
    Are chele ke chele hai.

  • Santosh

    Kishore kumar is an ultimate singer. This list maker is foolish. Other singers like kumar sanu, udit narayan, shaan, sonu Nigam took inspiration from the legendary singers like kishor da, rafi sahab and late mangeshkar.
    Kishore da was versatile singer. His name is missing means list maker have very poor knowledge.


    चल बे किशोर कुमार कहा हैं

  • Bharath

    Jubin Nautiyal must be added in this list

  • Hrushikesh

    The list is wrong:
    The correct list will be :

  • Ravindra Joshi

    Pls list Kishore Kumar sahab at par with Rafi sahab. Put all the copycats at the bottom of the list. Please include Abhijit Bhattacharaya ji in the list. Udit Narayan sahab is in the top 5 and he deserves it. He has an original and a very mellifluous voice.

  • shyamali dey


  • Ashok Kumar

    We should give up this.Because none Indian can not be complete without Kishore Kumar.

    Which idiot has made this list ? Are you jealous of Kumar Sanu ?? You have kept him at no.10 proves that you have no knowledge of singing and the quality associated with it. Kumar sanu will come above the Nepali singer Udit narayan for sure. Revise the list for the sake of true regard and recognition to a fabulous manly voice India has ever produced in the form and Kumar sanu. If you still don’t agree first listen to his song. I am sure you will understand the soothing and magical impact it does to our hearts. Grow up man.

    मुझे लगता है कि रैंकिंग बनाते समय आप लोग कुछ अच्छे कलाकार को भूल जाते हैं जैसे मोहम्मद अजीज जिन्होंने बहुत सारे सुपरहिट गाने गाए हैं उनको रैंकिंग में बहुत नीचे स्थान देते हैं ऐसा क्यों जहां उनका स्थान दूसरा तीसरा होना चाहिए
