The Group traces its humble beginning to a small general store and oil dealership started by Mr Ram Ratan Shah (Chairman’s father) at Janakpur, Nepal in the late 1970s. The shop was eventually taken over by Mr Vishwanath Shah and Shah Enterprises was registered in 1982.The enterprise engaged in trading activities for textile threads and
other consumer items.
In the early 1990s, Mr Vishwanath Shah opened a small Hair Oil Plant under the brand ‘Pooja Hair Oil’ for the regional markets. That same decade witnessed ‘Shah Enterprises’ change to Vishwanath & Sons
upon securing of exclusive distributorship of 1 st ready-to-chew tobacco to Nepal, named ‘Balwan Chhap Khaini’. Thereupon, company was able to vastly expand its distribution network and gradually secure exclusive Nepal Distributorship for Ayur Herbals, DS Group, Nippo batteries, Haldiram’s Snacks, Hindustan Pencils, among others. The year 1997 saw Mr Shah diversify to Laundry Detergent Manufacturing. In line with our Group Vision, today, DV Group has expanded its business presence from FMCG goods to Education to Restaurants, Media, trading of industrial goods, Agriculture to International Recruitment, with strategic plans for Hospitality sector.
