According to Time magazine, the "TIME's annual list of the world's most influential people is a designation of individuals whose time, in our estimation, is now."

The 2017 Time magazine list of influential people had also included British PM Theresa May, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, Russian President Vladimir Putin, President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Pope Francis.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been facing criticism in India over the demonetisation, implementation of Goods and Services Tax, and most recently over rapes taking place across the nation. However, his BJP party continues to win massive success in state elections.
