The Birla family is a family connected with the industrial and social history of India.[1][2][3] Shiv Narain Birla, a member of the Marwari community from Pilani in the westerly state of Rajasthan, traded in cotton and laid the foundation of the family's future business success by establishing a trading house in Bombay around 1857. His son, Baldeo Das Birla moved to Calcutta in 1861 to set up his own business. Baldeo Das was succeeded by four sons - Jugal Kishore, Rameshwar Das, Ghanshyam Das and Braj Mohan.[4][5][6]
