Birth and family

Indian industrialist Sunil Mittal was born on 23 October 1957 in Ludhiana district of Punjab. His mother’s name is Lalita Mittal and his father is Satpal Mittal, who was a politician and had been a Member of Parliament twice from Lok Sabha and once from Rajya Sabha.

He did his early education at Winberg Allen School in Mussoorie and later at The Scindia School in Gwalior. In the year 1976, he obtained his bachelor’s degree from Punjab University.


Talking about the beginning, Sunil Mittal wanted to become a businessman, but due to not having much interest in studies, he wanted to open a business of his own, perhaps this is the reason why today Sunil Mittal has been successful in his work.

At the age of about 18, Mittal entered the business industry and started a small cycle business with his friends, in which he started making parts like the crankshaft, etc. of Hero Cycles.

This business was good but Mittal felt that nothing much could be done in this business, so he established ‘Bharti Overseas Trading Company‘ along with his brothers.

Airtel Success Story Of Sunil Mittal

Mittal did not stop there because, in the year 1981, he started selling portable generators from Japan by purchasing an “import license”. Sunil got a huge profit in this work and slowly started getting solid in this work.

But in the meantime, this business of Sunil Mittal was soon closed as two Indian companies already had licenses to manufacture generators in the country.

He knew that many problems have to be faced before starting any business, so Mittal also did not give up and in the year 1984, Taiwan company Kingtel started the work of push-button i.e. wired phone.

And after this, in the year 1992, he submitted a claim for a mobile network license, and Sunil Mittal’s company BHARTI CELLULAR LIMITED i.e. BCL also got the license from some of the companies.

From here Mittal was seen going on the path of success as Mittal crossed the figure of 20 lakh people with the Airtel brand and joined many other industrialists.
