Major Companies Owned by the Ramoji group include Margadarsi Chit Fund, Eenadu newspaper, ETV, Ramadevi Public School, Priya Foods, Ushakiran Movies, Dolphin Hotels Pvt Ltd and so on.
If one can learn 3 things from the life of Chairman Garu as he is fondly addressed by his beloved people, they would be the following:
1. Power of thinking BIG, wherein in all cases thinking it’s possible, makes it so in life.
2. How systematizing and automating multiple business can build a legacy of growth and contribution and
3. How powerful leadership wins employees hearts and minds wherein employees work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company.
In April 2020, Ramoji Rao Garu goes on to donate Rs.10 crores each to Andhra Pradesh and Telangana chief minister’s relief fund to fight against coronavirus.
