A man for all seasons

The Late Shri Nandlal Madhavlal Dhoot, Founder, The Videocon GroupA 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, Pune, and in Maharashtra, India. A successful sugarcane and cotton grower, he boldly ventured forth and imported machinery from Europe, setting up the Gangapur Sakhar Karkhana (Sugar Mill) in 1955, at a time when the village had no electricity, thereby unleashing an industrial revolution.

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

In early 80s, Nandlalji initiated his three sons - Venugopal, Rajkumar and Pradeep into the business. Through a technical tie-up with Toshiba Corporation of Japan, he launched India's first world -class Colour Television : Videocon.

Today, Videocon is a household name across the nation - India's No.1 brand of Consumer Electronics and Home Appliances, trusted by over 50 million people to improve their quality of life.
