Home      About us

A federation of companies, bound by one purpose – to Rise. Inspired by this spirit, our legacy and values,
our goal to always positively impact our partners, stakeholders, communities and the world at large, remains unshakeable.

Every time the society needed us, we stepped in and helped create a new industry. In 1945, our journey commenced with us getting into the steel business, and over time, we expanded to 22 key industries. A need for change in the agricultural practices pushed us to foray into that sector right before the agriculture revolution began in India. We became one of the key torch-bearers of the IT revolution in our country. Our focus now lies in developing alternate energy sources because we believe energy conservation will play a huge role in ensuring a better future – for not just our country and communities, but the entire world.
