Writing success stories is never easy. While most see the success on the outside, what is usually skipped over are the grit and the passion that goes into making the story what it is – a success.

When we talk of blood and sweat, MBD group is easily the story of unending grit and passion. For, after all, beginning from a small book depot and becoming a name to reckon with in the field of education can’t have been a cakewalk.

Today the MBD Group is one of the leading education companies in India with over six decades of experience. What fuelled its success was a dream that had no boundaries. Under the futuristic vision of the founder of the Group, Shri Ashok Kumar Malhotra, MBD has diversified into various industries, including e-Learning, m-Learning, hospitality, real estate, mall development and management, CT infrastructure, skill development, stationery, and magazine and paper manufacturing.

Currently, the group caters to learners across the country with its five publishing divisions and 37 branch offices in India. We have also ventured into the Saarc, South African and Sri Lankan markets with its basket of education services.

With the fire of faith, the Group also got into other businesses. In fact, at a time when most people laughed off at the idea of a five-star hotel in Ludhiana, Shri Malhotra went ahead with conviction. Today the MBD Group has successfully established itself in the hospitality industry through its maiden venture, The Radisson Blu MBD Hotel, Noida, and the Radisson Blu Hotel MBD Ludhiana (the first 5- star deluxe hotel in the city). The Group has also ventured into premium and luxury mixed-use developments, primarily entailing hotel, retail and entertainment, under the brand name The MBD Neopolis, which are operating successfully at Ludhiana and Jalandhar. The next category of luxury mixed-use developments of the Group, The MBD Zephyr, will be at Whitefield, Bangalore. The MBD Group has similar plans in Greater Noida, Hyderabad, Jalandhar and Goa.

Another feather in our cap is a joint venture between the MBD Group and the Steigenberger Hotel Group, the largest German chain of hotels and resorts.

Go on, feed your passion and see the change. We did!
