Mr. Kotadia succeeds in establishing STPL as the backbone of the Indian Diamond Manufacturing industry and with this as a platform, looks to take on and solve a variety of societal & economical challenges around him.
One fateful night in Surat, Mr. Kotadia stopped at a pharmacist to buy some medicines. While waiting, he witnessed a poor elderly man show up at the counter with his prescription. When the elder gentleman started crying due to inability to pay the Rs. 473 bill for the medicines, Mr. Kotadia paid it without a hesitation. And while paying the bill, he thought to himself that, "A man's inability to pay for the most basic & critical medications is the more dire of societal issues".
This incident ignited a spark in Mr. Kotadia's mind to manufacture critical life saving devices, which are affordable to the common man. And, thus began the journey of Sahajanand Medical Technologies (SMT) with, "Pledge to Save Millions".
