Career of Radhakishan Damani

After dropping out of college and leaving the ball-bearing job that he used to run earlier, Radhakishan entered the streets of stock marketing and started short selling stocks which bagged him a lot of money. 

On a sarcastic note, it was Harshad Mehta who made the job easier for Damani as he earned the profits by short-selling stocks that were once inflated by Harshad Mehta by illegitimate means.

However, Radhakishan is not a man of limitations, as soon as he found out that he has earned enough money to invest further, he started putting his own money in the stock market and the decision was not wrong. It gained Radhakishan a lot of money as well as provided him with a drive to work even harder.

However, the end of the 20th century had a different plan for Damani as 1999 came as a turning point in his life for he left the stock market suddenly and decided to venture into something different. 

In the same year, Radhakishan launched his first department store in Nerul, named Apna Bazaar, but this didn’t seem to match Radhakishan’s aspirations to the fullest.

To learn more about the business models, Radhakishan went to the US and observed the business model of Walmart closely which helped him gain a better knowledge of the retail industry.

Following his instinct, Radhakishan stepped into the retail industry with his own retail chain, D-Mart in 2000. The first store of D-Mart was established in Powai which saw rapid growth and within a time span of 10 years, the chain had 25 stores across India.

However, this was just the beginning of Radhakishan’s journey to the Billionaire-club. In today’s time, Radhakishan Damani is the proud owner of 234 retail stores across India.

Radhakishan’s success story is enough to keep an entrepreneur hustling, but the intentions of Mr. Damani are here to fill a human’s heart with respect and admiration. His intention behind coming up with D-Mart was in fact to serve the customers with high-quality products at low costs. This is the reason why Mr. Damani keeps his profit margin to the minimum. 

No wonder, “God helps those who help others.”
