Infrasoft Technologies

Infrasoft Technologies was set up by Maninder Singh with his three friends Hanuman Tripathi, Ramesh Govindan and Shekhar Ganpati in 1995 with a funding of Rs.5 crore from the Batlivala & Karani Group. Since then the company has been connecting information highways to the consumers and providing software-led IT solutions for banking and financial services. With only 23 people and revenues of Rs.65 lacs in 1995 to around 1100 employees and Rs.225 crore in 2016, Infrasoft Technologies has indeed come a long way. And given its diverse portfolio, the company still looks to create new milestones and scale new heights.

Natural Remedies

Natural Remedies, a leading herbal research driven company in India, was established by Ramlal Agarwal in the early 50s. It was during his childhood days, while hearing stories from the Mahabharta, that Ramlal got the idea of establishing a herbal veterinary company. Initially Ramlal sold his products for free since the farmers couldn't afford it and as his products became a true winner in the market, he started charging for it. A business that was completely based on trust and a loyal band of customers has today emerged as a leading herbal research driven company. The small investment made then has yielded big dividends today for his son Ravindra Kumar Agarwal and grandson Anurag Agarwal, the Managing director of Natural Remedies.
