Shri. PDji started with just one truck plying between Calcutta and Bombay and even after it burnt in a fire, he compensated the customers. I believe that these ideals are followed even today and Shri PD ji managed to create a company that gives precedence to the nation and the society while serving with utmost sincerity, building confidence and trust in their customers. He appreciated TCI fraternity & Shri. DP. Agarwal especially for strengthening the legacy left behind by Shri. PDJi.
Shri. DP Agarwal, Chairman and Managing Director - TCI Group, felt humbled to remember how Shri PD Agarwal's efforts have been instrumental and a continuous source of inspiration for them. He quoted the words of Shri PD ji, "I am ready to make any sacrifice to please the customer, if not why am I in this business. The customer is king." and threw light on how Shri PD ji's contribution to our society extends beyond transport to education, health, village development, women empowerment.
Mr. Chander Agarwal welcoming everyone quoted PD ji "To me life means one long opportunity to be good and to do well; if that is religion, I practice it most ardently every moment" that instilled in the audience, a sense of complete commitment towards society at large.
Mr. Vineet Agarwal, thanked The Honorable Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), Dr. Mahendra Nath Pandey, for gracing the occasion and the Department of Posts, for its vital support and guidance, that the release of PDJi's "Customized My Stamp and Special Cover" has been possible.
