You re­cently won the ‘Ex­cel­lence award in the field of busi­ness’ at The Star­dust Achiev­ers Awards in Lon­don. What do you have to say about that?

I am not only hon­oured but also thank­ful for the award. It felt great to be part of the event.

An en­tre­pre­neur and phi­lan­thropist… How would you want to de­scribe your­self?

Def­i­nitely, an en­tre­pre­neur and busi­ness­man! I was in­volved in my fam­ily busi­ness from a very early age and to­gether, that is, with my fam­ily and team, we have grown mul­ti­fold.

How did you start your jour­ney?

I started my jour­ney at a rel­a­tively early age. It was al­most a com­pul­sion to start early in or­der to un­der­stand the busi­ness and then grow it. At the age of 31, I set out to in­de­pen­dently de­velop our in­ter­na­tional busi­ness. And to­day, we are present in over 80 coun­tries across the world.

Please tell us briefly about your work.

We are one of In­dia’s lead­ing com­pa­nies in the elec­tri­cal sec­tor, par­tic­u­larly in the ca­bles and wires mar­ket. Be­sides that, our prod­uct port­fo­lio also in­cludes Con­sumer Durables, Electro­mechan­i­cal Park­ing Sys­tems, Earthing Ac­ces­sories, Bus­ducts, Cop­per tubes to name a few. RR Ka­bel is the only cable and wires com­pany from In­dia that has max­i­mum in­ter­na­tional cer­ti­fi­ca­tions al­low­ing us to op­er­ate glob­ally. We were also the first In­dian com­pany to in­tro­duce and de­velop the tech­nol­ogy of Car Park­ing Sys­tems with our brand RR Parkon, which has sub­se­quently grown be­yond the bor­ders of In­dia to Nepal, Bhutan, Myan­mar and Africa. We

started out as a trad­ing house back in the ‘80s and in about three decades, we are now present across 80 coun­tries with a turnover of over USD 650 Mil­lions. Safe to say, things have been pretty good, how­ever we are only just get­ting started.

How do you see the present sta­tus of the Ca­bles and Wires in­dus­try?

This sec­tor as a whole has been do­ing tremen­dously well. With the im­ple­men­tati­tion of GST, even the im­pact of the rogue play­ers has been re­duced and in some cases, elim­i­nated. This means, the cus­tomer can sleep peace­fully know­ing the ca­bles and wires in his home or work­place comes from com­pa­nies who put in a lot of ef­fort to en­sure safety and qual­ity. We ex­pect the sec­tor to con­tinue grow­ing.

What ac­cord­ing to you en­sures cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion?

A range of prod­ucts with qual­ity and af­ford­abil­ity as its fo­cus and ex­cel­lent af­ter sales ser­vice en­sure cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion.

Your braind­child RR Ka­bel is one of the lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers of wires and ca­bles glob­ally. How does it make you feel?

De­lighted, thank­ful but aspir­ing for much more.

What is your suc­cess mantra?

Keep learn­ing. Lis­ten to oth­ers and learn. Every­one you meet or in­ter­act with have some­thing to teach you.

What are the three things which are most im­por­tant in any busi­ness?

A fantastic re­la­tion­ship with your sup­plier, your abil­ity to man­u­fac­ture prod­ucts of the high­est qual­ity, un­der­stand­ing the de­mands of the mar­kets and of course, com­mu­ni­cate your brand mes­sage ef­fec­tively.

What has been your con­stant in­spi­ra­tion in your life?

My ex­pe­ri­ences when I travel for plea­sure and my ex­pe­ri­ences while in­ter­act­ing with peo­ple dur­ing my

busi­ness trav­els. You come across such in­ter­est­ing peo­ple and cul­tures that they be­come the in­spi­ra­tion with what you need to move for­ward.

What are you look­ing for­ward to?

Con­tin­u­ing to grow mul­ti­fold, in­creas­ing our in­ter­na­tional foot­prints and con­tin­u­ing to pro­vide our cus­tomers with only the best prod­ucts. Con­tin­u­ing to em­power peo­ple, the peo­ple who work for you should do so with plea­sure and not pres­sure. And also, con­tin­u­ing to fo­cus on cre­at­ing an hon­est brand, one that peo­ple be­lieve in and trust.

Please give a mes­sage for the young minds who look up to achiev­ers like you?

Be­lieve in the power of your dreams and con­tinue to as­pire.
