Mr Ghanshyam Sarda, Chairman, Sarda Group, has reportedly applauded the West Bengal state government’s efforts to allow the jute mills in the state to operate without additional restrictions. He also lauded other inclusions in the State budget to double rural income by 2022, increase budget allocations to skill and infrastructure development and assure housing tax holiday.
The Sarda Group controls a significant percentage of the jute production in the country. During the period when jute as an industry was falling and large business houses were walking away because of West Bengal’s labour militancy, the head of this conglomerate, Mr Ghanshyam Sarda, saw an opportunity. This was a chance to revive jute mills for their biodegradable and eco-friendly materials. The result was the revival of nine diminishing jute mills, the creation of employment in West Bengal and the comeback of the jute industry overall. Ghanshyam Sarda has now earned a reputation for reviving sick businesses, proving his visionary employee motivation approach across domains such as tea gardens, IT/ITES and chemicals.
With relentless dedication and a clear vision, Mr Ghanshyam Sarda has created an empire valued at over Rs. 2500 crores. This empire spans an array of businesses, including IT/ITES, the services market and the Real Estate space. From a humble beginning to India's one of the successful Industrialists, Ghanshyam Sarda has come a long way.
With the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Mr Ghanshyam Sarda ensured that necessary steps were taken to vaccinate every employee without any charges who wasn’t covered under the government’s vaccination drive programmes.
Ghanshyam Sarda has been recognised at the ‘Top Icons of Kolkata 2019’ event as a leading industrialist. He has also kicked off initiatives that provide educational scholarships for underprivileged youngsters. He believes that the right to accessible and free education is fundamental for the growth of any country. Mr Sarda was also one of the big winners at the Times Business Awards in 2019. Attended by renowned foreign dignitaries, industrialists, business heads and celebrities like Anil Kapoor, Ghanshyam Sarda was facilitated by Jurgen Thomas Schrod of the German Counsel.
