Techno India Group has evolved as the forerunner in the most advanced courses for students and established its identity as a leader in the field of unique creation. TIG’s pursuit of excellence is driven by the dreams of its founder, Chairman Prof. Goutam Roychowdhury, and Co-Chairman, Prof. Manoshi Roychowdhury. As unique entrepreneurs, both not only think about the growth of their own enterprise but also about the society around them and the nation they belong to.
BNCCI, the oldest indigenous Chamber in India was established on 2nd February 1887. Its history is closely interwoven with India’s struggle for independence.
