Aditya Vikram Birla (on a 2013 stamp of India)


Indian industrialist, scion of one of the largest business families of India, who oversaw the diversification of his group into textiles, petrochemicals and telecommunications. He was one of the first Indian industrialists to expand abroad, setting up plants in South east Asia, the Philippines and Egypt. His death on 1 October 1995 in Baltimore, Maryland, at the age of 52, left his young son Kumar Mangalam Birla (born 14 June 1967 in Calcutta) in charge of his group of companies. A special commemorative stamp was released by the government of India in the name of Aditya Vikram Birla on 14 January 2013, honouring him as "India's first global industrialist".
