Board of Directors
Born on February 18, 1926, in a small village of Hansot in Bharuch district of South Gujarat, Indravadan Ambalal Modi has left a long lasting impact on the Indian Pharmaceuticals industry. With a vision of making medicines affordable to the last man of society, Cadila has throughout the years fostered many innovations to bring them to the Indian market at a reasonable price.
After higher studies of pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals at Mumbai University, at the age of 25 Modi quit his job as a chemist in a chemical manufacturing unit and founded Cadila Laboratories in 1951 together with business partner Ramanbhai Patel.
The operations evolved over the decades to one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in India. In 1995 the company was restructured into two parts, with the Modi family’s share of the company being renamed to Cadila Pharmaceuticals. The company has since remained a family owned business that today employs over 9,500 people with presence in over 100 countries.
Modi has also played an important role in the development of the Indian pharmaceutical Industry by influencing government policies and national legislation.
In 2012, Modi passed away at the age of 87 years. Since then the company is chaired by his son, Dr. Rajiv Modi. Cadila Pharmaceuticals has continued to grow and today has a strong global presence with operations in Europe, USA, Japan and Africa.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Cadila Pharmaceuticals has a number of CSR activities running for the benefit of the community, focusing on the areas of health, education, women’s empowerment and child care. The center of these activities is the Kaka-Ba Hospital which was set up in 1985 by Cadila Pharmaceuticals’ founder Indravadan Modi to serve the local community with quality medical services and health and hygiene awareness and education.
Kaka-Ba Hospital has played a pivotal role in comprehensive and sustainable development and has emerged as a successful rural healthcare model. Over the three decades of operation more than 500,000 patients have been treated. The hospital has also helped more than 3,000 patients with physical deformities like cleft lip or post burn contracture with plastic surgeries. All of the services of the hospital are provided free or at very nominal charges.
In addition to serving the community with healthcare, the Kaka-Ba Trust is also working with disease prevention projects such as bringing water purification plants to the nearby villages.
