Karman Dangar


In the dynamic realm of the mining industry, an efficient leader holds a paramount importance navigating challenges and capitalizing on opportunities. At its core, effective leadership entails striking a delicate balance between leveraging cutting-edge technology and honoring traditional values. Karman Dangar, at the helm of the HRD Group of Companies, epitomizes this philosophy. Influenced by his grandfather's visionary approach and values, Karman embarked on a journey to expand the family business upon completing his post-graduation in the UK. Under his stewardship, the HRD Group has diversified its operations, specializing in the lavigation, beneficiation, and calcination of Kaolin and silica sand.

Moreover, Karman's strategic vision has led to the inclusion of additional minerals such as quartz, ball clay, salt, and laterite, broadening the company's scope and solidifying its position as a leader in the industry. Through a blend of tradition and innovation, Karman continues to steer the HRD Group towards unprece-dented success. Let’s read on.

Share insights into some of the technological and scientific research advancements that have bolstered the HRD Group's market position under your leadership?

Our ascendancy to the top spot in production capacity within our industry hinges on technological and scientific advancements. Upon joining the business in 2016-17, our inability to utilize 45-50 percent of materials due to inadequate technology and infrastructure hindered resource optimization. However, after 18 months of rigorous research and global exploration to benchmark industry practices, we pioneered the implementation of innovative
technology. This adoption substantially reduced material loss from 45-50 percent to a mere 5 percent. Notably, our initiative has inspired approximately 100 small to medium-sized enterprises to emulate our approach, reaping the benefits of advanced technologies.

As a cohesive entity within the HRD Group of Companies, we've ascended to the fore front as the primary manufacturers of kaolin & silica sand within our industry

Under your leadership, how have production capabilities been augmented? Would you be willing to outline some strategies employed to achieve this enhancement?

During my tenure, our production capabilities have undergone a substantial boost. As a cohesive entity within the HRD Group of Companies, we've ascended to the forefront as the primary manufacturers of Kaolin and silica sand within our industry, surpassing our former seventh place standing. Our relentless efforts persist as we strive to not only sustain this achievement but also to secure the leading position across various other mineral sectors, driving our company's growth and prominence in the market.

How do you ensure the workforce remains motivated to contribute to the success of the business?

I believe our growth is attributed to the philosophy instilled by our company's Founder, Rana Rava Dangar. He emphasized viewing individuals not merely as employees or laborers, but as partners. Upholding this ethos, we incentivize dedicated individuals who have served for 8-10 years by offering them partnership in our business. This approach fosters a sense of ownership and loyalty; hence, those who have been with us for this duration never depart as mere employees but as valued partners.

What is your anticipation about the market and your future vision for the group, and how do you plan to execute it?
I am very bullish on our Indian economy and the forthcoming future of our company. We feel our company have just arrived in this and it’s the time to accelerate in terms of expanding as we all know our country will be growing at significant speed under the leadership of our honourable prime minister Narendra Modi. Because of his vision, the industries in which we are working and supplying directly such as solar glass, cement, ceramic, paint and more, will be growing at incredible speed.

As I mentioned earlier that there many key infrastructure industries which will be growing at very big scale, we as HRD Group would try to make sure that Indian industries get all the necessary world class quality minerals locally itself. For example, we believe solar glass manufacturers will require huge amount of silica sand with the best quality but as of now we had to import those quality sand from Egypt and other countries but after four years of research we have finally achieved the same quality with only 40 percent cost. Hence, if we can have all the resources locally then it would much better for our industries to compete at world level.

Given your robust professional background in the industry, what guidance would you offer to emerging leaders in the field?

In the realm of mining, success hinges on your ability to bridge the gap between the resources present on your land and the latest global technological and innovative trends. By adeptly harnessing and optimizing your minerals, you position yourself for success, especially considering the significant growth opportunities our country currently offers. Understanding how to leverage advancements in technology and innovation to enhance your mineral output is paramount in capitalizing on the burgeoning prospects within our industry.
