Neetish Sarda Father - Ghanshyam
Sarda - A Successful Businessman
Mr. Ghanshyam Sarda is the proud father of Neetish Sarda, the youngest entrepreneur
of India. Mr. Sarda is a Calcutta-based businessman, who was born in August 1959.
Ghanshyam entered the family business after graduating from St. Xavier's College in
Kolkata, ignorant of his potential as a future billionaire. He concentrated all of his efforts
on the jute sector, which had formerly been India's largest export earner.
Employees, investors, and everyone else who was involved in the jute business at that
time lost their investments. Ghanshyam gathered all his strength and resurrected nine
dying jute mills from the rubble of the failing industry and Since then, there has been no
turning back. The Sarda Group now controls a 20% portion of India's revived jute sector.
After that Mr. Sarda was unstoppable and purchased a shuttered seafood processing
facility in Raichak, West Bengal, in 1994. This had previously been leased by the United
States' Union Carbide Corporation and promoted by the West Bengal government with
World Bank funding in 1982. This unit has turned a new leaf under the leadership of
Ghanshyam Sarda, and is now the largest seafood processor in West Bengal, as well
as one of India's top quality-certified factories, with EU registration and HACCP
certification from the US Food and Drug Administration.
The Sarda Group of Industries is based in Kolkata and has offices throughout West
Bengal. Currently, the company has eight jute mills that generate about 500 tonnes of
jute goods each day. The Jute Mill, which was recently established in Alwar, Rajasthan,
is expected to cost Rs 100 crore. The Sarda Group was also the first in India to set up
professional training facilities for staff of jute mills. Sarda Group presently employs over
50,000 people and is one of West Bengal's largest employers. In addition to business,
Mr. Sarda has contributed to the state in a multitude of ways, including events, sports,
