Jain Irrigation founder chairman Bhavarlal Jain passes away

Jain Irrigation founder chairman Shri Bhavarlal Hiralal Jain (79) passed away Feb. 25 after brief illness at a hospital in Mumbai.

Jain Irrigation released a tribute article in honor of its founder. It read, in part:

He was a man of small ideas, which created big revolutions. He practiced what he preached and he built his entire business on a foundation of inclusiveness and sustainability over the last 5 decades.

He believed small farmers are entrepreneurs and they must get dignity as well as higher income. He toiled hard to ensure the same to over 5 million farmers. He was a visionary and “Karmayogi.” We pledge to walk on the path envisioned by him forever.

The small town entrepreneur who established a billion-dollar, rural, multinational corporation. A spirited champion of the small farmer; whom he saw as nobly toiling in the face of all adversity. A committed environmentalist and compassionate social worker – is no more!

Bhavarlal Hiralal Jain, ‘Bhau’ to all his innumerable friends & associates, passed away after a brief illness in Mumbai on 25th February 2016.
