Rathi Steel & Power Ltd. Company History and Annual Growth Details

In the 1940s late Shri Gordhan Das Rathi and his two brothers
viz. late Shri Kanhaiya Lal Rathi and late Shri Chhuttan Lal Rathi,
setup a Steel Rolling Mill in Delhi under the name and style
'Rathi Steel Rolling Mill'. The sharing pattern in this mill was -
45% of Shri G.D. Rathi and 27% each of Shri K.L. Rathi and
Shri C.L. Rathi.

Shri G.D. Rathi (Group-A) had six sons, namely:

1. Shri Prem Ratan Rathi (A.1)
2. Shri Ram Chandra Rathi (A.2)
3. Shri Punam Chand Rathi (A.3)
4. Shri Kamlesh Kumar Rathi (A.4)
5. Shri Arun Kumar Rathi (A.5)
6. Shri Anil Rathi (A.6)

Shri Kanhaiya Lal Rathi (Group-B) had only one son, namely
Shri Chand Ratan Rathi.

Shri Chhuttan Lal Rathi (Group-C) also had only one son,
namely Shri Hari Kishan Rathi.

In the late sixties/ early seventies, Shri G.D. Rathi renounced
his 45% share in Rathi Steel Rolling Mill, in favour of his sons
Shri Prem Ratan Rathi (9%), Shri Ram Chanrda Rathi (9%),
Shri Punam Chand Rathi (9%), Shri Kamlesh Kumar Rathi (9%),
Shri Arun Kumar Rathi (3%), Shri Anil Rathi (3%) and his wife
Smt. Chautha Devi Rathi (3%).

During those years (1970s) there was a division between the
three brothers and the business activities of Rathi Steel Rolling
Mill were divided into two parts - one part to Group-A (Shri G.D.
Rathi and his sons) and the other part to Group B&C (Shri
Kanhaiya Lal Rathi with his son Shri Chand Ratan Rathi and
Shri Chhutan Lal Rathi with his son Shri Hari Kishan Rathi).
Group-A formed their part as M/s G.D. Rathi Steels Pvt. Ltd.,
and Group-B&C joined together and formed their part as
M/s K.L. Rathi Steel Ltd.

Later on Group-A also established two more units at Ghaziabad,

1. M/s Rathi Ispat Ltd (Mini Steel Plant) at Ghaziabad.
2. M/s Rathi Udyog Ltd (Rolling Mill) at Ghaziabad.

And Group B&C established M/s Rathi Alloys & Steel Ltd. at
Ghaziabad and Alwar. However, in around 1975 there was a
division amongst them and Group-B took over the control of
M/s Rathi Alloys & Steel Ltd. and Group-C took over
M/s K.L. Rathi Steel Ltd.
