Late Shri Kirtilal Manilal Mehta

Born in the small town of Palanpur on February 07, 1907, Shri Mehta joined his family business in Rangoon, Burma. Having lost his father at a very young age, circumstances led him to be independent and responsible. As a young man with great ambition, Mr. Mehta setup an independent business in Mumbai under his own name. He had a keen eye on business opportunities and was able to spot the potential in exporting diamonds to Europe. He pioneered the entry of the Indian community in Antwerp, Belgium. His exploits in the world of business earned him a lot of recognition and awards which include the prestigious “Office of the Order” honour by His Majesty The King of Belgium in 1991, being the first ever Indian to receive it. Other notable awards include,
• Leading Exporter Award by Government of India
• Outstanding Exporter Award from the President of Israel
• Honour by King of Palanpur
