Xerxes Sapur Desai, the man who founded India’s largest watchmaker company ‘Titan Co Ltd’, has passed away following a prolonged illness in Bengaluru. He was 79 years old. He did BA in History and also did masters in philosophy, economics, and politics from Oxford University. After getting graduated, he joined Tata Administrative Service (TAS) in 1961.
He also worked with Tata Press, Tata Chemicals, and Taj Hotels before setting up Titan in 1986. The idea of Titan came about in 1979, but it took him seven long years to finally set up a factory in Hosur, Bengaluru, in 1986 with support from the Tamil Nadu government. With the success in watches, he got Tata’s approval to start Tanishq, the jewelry business that is now a trusted brand and India’s largest jewelry firm.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the founder of Titan who has passed away recently?
2. Where is the headquarter of Titan and in which year it has been setup?
