The Legacy of Seth ShriVallabh Pittie

A lonely journey begins…

The journey began in 1895, when a young 13 year old boy from Nagaur in Rajasthan decided to follow the path destiny had laid out for him. Unknown to himself, the young lad had literally embarked on the journey to make his fortune.  

The journey of a thousand miles began with a single footstep . 

He first walked all the way to Ajmer, from where he caught a train to Hyderabad. He found work there, but soon felt the urge to make his way to Bombay and make the city his home.Once in Bombay his true struggle began.He persevered for years before fortune favored him.  

“I was walking alone on the path and wanderers kept joining and a caravan was formed…”

In the year 1898 he ventured into trading and broking in metals and he entered the bullion trade. He formed his first company - - ShriVallabh Pittie, Significantly he also became one of the founder members of the Bombay Bullion Exchange, now called the Bombay Bullion Association, of which the company is still a member.  

The beneficiaries of his success – his society

But business was just one aspect of the life and times of ShriVallabh Pittie.He was a keen contributor to society and always led the way by personal example.In a sterling incident that explains his priority of things - he donated the FIRST One Lac he earned for making a dharamshala for travelers in Nagaur. He did not stop there, but went on to institute many charitable organizations to contribute to the welfare of his fellow citizens from Nagaur.

His devotion and dedication is marked by the fact that during a major famine in Rajasthan, he left all his business activities and personally traveled to Nagaur and went door to door with camel tanks and served water to residents, a memory that all Nagaur residents lovingly cherish to date.

He then built many temples and donated huge parcels of land as Gochar Bhumi for grazing of  cows.The journey that he began has culminated into several individual businesses and a thriving enterprise that is in true meaning a legacy to his endeavors.

His legacy is alive and is sustained in the principles that guide the ShriVallabh Pittie Group.
