Born and brought up in Kolkata, I am a Chartered Accountant by academic qualification. CA was a default choice for me given that I am a Marwari and that we have been working for accounting books in our family since Class 3. Trade & Commerce in the air 🙂
I started my professional journey with the Audit & Assurance vertical of Deloitte Haskins & Sells in Aug’05. Then moved onto Corporate Finance of ITC Ltd in Nov’07. My tryst with Tata Steel started in Dec’08 where we were put on a project to prepare financial forecasting models for Corus (Tata Steel Europe). Finally, moved to the mining business of Aditya Birla Group in July’11 where I have been working on M&A deals and Revenue Pricing for Private Public Partnership (PPP) opportunities in coal mining. Also thanks to some wonderful bosses, I moved into operations as part of a greenfield project implementation of a 20 MTPA Bhubaneshwari Coal MDO project for Mahanadi Coalfields (MCL) in Orissa.
