The Batra Group started in 1947 when Ram Batra established numerous businesses, after he moved to Bombay during the Indian Independence.
Over the years Ram Batra gained a reputation for absolute integrity. His business acumen and interests encompassed 19 industries, ranging from textiles to plastic.
A compassionate philanthropist, he supported many medical, cultural, religious and sporting charities and was appointed Sheriff of Bombay.
Today the business empire built by Ram Batra is a highly diversified, profitable organisation.
The business thrives under the control of Ram Batra’s sons, Rajesh and Rajiv. They have created an international group with interests in retail, brand licensing,
distribution and sourcing companies with a presence across the Indian subcontinent, United Kingdom, Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East.
