A gratifying moment for Mahindra

It’s a defining moment for all of us at Mahindra after the Department of Posts (DoP) has released a commemorative postage stamp to mark 75 years of the Group. Devusinh Jesingbhai Chauhan, the Honourable Minister of State for Communications, unveiled the special stamp along with Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group, in the presence of officials from the DoP and colleagues from the Group.

Speaking on the occasion, Shri Devusinh Chauhan said, “Over the last 75 years, the Mahindra Group through its various businesses in farming, automotive, finance, IT and telecommunications has contributed significantly towards the growth and development of our nation. The government of India under the visionary and dynamic leadership of the Honourable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, has taken several initiatives during last seven years, which have immensely benefited Indian industries and businesses and unleashed their true potential. Among the most notable of them is ‘Atma Nirbhar Bharat’, which supports home-grown products, industries and businesses. I am happy to state that Mahindra Group is a fine example of an ‘Atma Nirbhar Bharat’, which is worth emulating and encouraging for all. I can assure you that the support of the Modi government, through its proactive policies, will continue in the aforesaid areas. I congratulate the Mahindra Group for their extraordinary and sustained success. I also wish them all the best for their future initiatives."

Remarking on the Group’s journey, Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group, said, “We at the Mahindra Group are truly honoured to have this commemorative postal stamp issued on our 75th anniversary and are thankful to the Department of Posts and honourable minister for this acknowledgement. Commencing its journey as a steel-trading venture seven decades ago, Mahindra was founded with a vision of being a firm imbued with a national purpose and a new outlook. Since then, the Mahindra Group has steadily evolved into a global brand, spanning nations and industries. We are very proud of our legacy and are humbled by the opportunities we have had along the way to contribute to the rise of our nation. As we take the next steps in our journey, we are committed to driving growth and prosperity. I take this opportunity to thank all associates, partners and stakeholders for their contributions in our efforts towards helping people Rise.”

The commemorative stamp design features the founders of the Group, JC and KC Mahindra, and is inspired by miniature art. It uses a modern graphical style to illustrate the various facets of the Group. A closer look at the stamp reveals the various business and life-centric activities of the Mahindra Group.
