The Late Shri. Nandlal Madhavlal Dhoot
Founder , The Videocon Group
( 26 February 1932 - 26 April 1993 )

A man of Ideas. A man of Substance. A man of Vision.

Shri Nandlal Madhavlal Dhoot, the founder of the Videocon Group, completed his education in Ahmednagar and Pune. He was a successful sugarcane and cotton cultivator. As a next logical step to vertical integration, he boldly took upon an entrepreneurial venture by importing machinery from Europe to set up the Gangapur Sakhar Karkhana (Sugar Mill) in 1955. Those were the times when the village did not even have electricity. Thus was unleashed an Industrial Revolution.

The die was cast. Over the years, Nandlalji's path-breaking attitude found expression in a myriad ways, earning him the well-deserved reputation of the pioneer of industrial activity in Marathwada India.

In early 80's Nandlalji initiated his three sons - Venugopal, Rajkumar and Pradeep into business. Through a technical tie up with Toshiba Corporation of Japan, he launched India's first world-class color Television: Videocon. Today, Videocon is household name across the nation- India's No. 1 brand of Consumer Electronics & Home Appliances, trusted by over 50 million people to improve their quality of life.
