OP JIndal: Envisioning Indias Modern Growth

Late Shri Om Prakash Jindal, Founder Chairman of the Jindal Group was born on August 7, 1930, to a farmer in Nalwa village of Hisar district in Haryana. Having interest in technology from a young age, he started his industrial career with a humble bucketmanufacturing unit in Hisar in 1952. In 1964, he commissioned a pipe unit, Jindal India Limited followed by a large factory in 1969 under the name of Jindal Strips Limited. Shri Jindal envisioned a self-reliant India in every sector of industry. To fructify this vision, he gathered the latest technical know-how from around the world and strengthened his industrial establishment. Recognizing his outstanding contribution to the Indian steel industry, Shri O. P. Jindal was conferred the prestigious "Life Time Achievement Award" by the Bengal Chamber of Commerce & Industry in November 2004. A visionary who is remembered for his business excellence and social responsibilities alike, Shri Jindal believed that without the upliftment of weak and backward sections of the society, a nation can never prosper. Thus, he spent a lot of time in taking steps to alleviate poverty and boost the backward sections of the society. He was above caste politics and wanted to ensure a rightful place for every individual in politics, regardless of his caste, color and creed. He firmly believed that all differences could be amicably resolved through meaningful dialogues. With this conviction, he forayed into politics and attained great success there as well. He was elected a Member of the Haryana Legislative Assembly three times and a Member of Parliament in the 11th Lok Sabha, from the Kurukshetra constituency of Haryana, with a landslide victory in 1996. He also served as the Minister of Power, Govt. of Haryana. His multifarious career was tragically cut short with his accidental death on March 31, 2005.
