About Dalmia Group

Dalmia Group is one of the oldest and most distinguished business houses in India. The group’s motto, ‘Enterprise without Frontiers’, is intrinsically engraved on all its activities. Founded by Ramkrishna Dalmia in the early 20th Century, the legacy was passed on to Mr Vishnu Hari Dalmia(Dalmia Family), and is now further strengthened and expanded by his sons Mr Sanjay Dalmia (Chairman) and Mr Anurag Dalmia (Vice Chairman).

The Dalmia Group intends to be a significant contributor and integral part of the new wave of entrepreneurship that will place India as the global leader of the 21st century. Thus for the group, it is not necessary to be present everywhere but in select segments, where noteworthy value can be built for the stakeholders and the environment at large. The group’s deep sense of Social Responsibility is reflected in their ongoing works for the environment, people and philanthropic services.

Over the years, the group has evolved into a dynamic and globally progressive corporate entity. The core areas in which the group deals include textiles, soda ash, tobacco and ITES, through the companies GHCL Ltd., SC GHCL UPSOM Romania SA, GTL India, Caretel Infotech Ltd, and Colwell & Salmon. The group has also forayed into the healthcare industry through its subsidiaries Dalmia Healthcare Ltd. and Bharat Pharma Ltd.

Foresight is the mark of any successful business, and it is readily visible in the operations of Dalmia Group. Under the aegis of its Chairman Mr. Sanjay Dalmia, the group is climbing up the success ladder with utmost panache. Expanding with good business ethics just as important as consumer satisfaction is. With fervent endeavors and determination of the Directors, Dalmia Group of Companies has expanded itself, and is still growing by combining long experience with modern technology to deliver quality products and services.
