Gradually it became such a brand that even today it is the largest pencil manufacturing company in the country. Its business is spread not only in India but in many countries of the world.
this is how it started
India, stuck in the slavery of the British, could not give up its dependence on foreign countries even after independence. This was the period when India was completely dependent on imports. The most commonly used pencil was also included in these products. It is not that efforts were not made to make pencils in the country. Many businessmen started the work of making pencils, but their quality was very poor and it was getting expensive, that’s why people started preferring foreign pencils. Meanwhile, the government imposed partial restrictions on imports to promote pencil manufacturing in the country. That’s why three friends together dreamed of making a good pencil and laid the foundation of a company named Hindustan Pencils.
took training in germany
The foundation of Hindustan Pencils was laid in 1958. Three friends Ramnath Mehra, BJ Sanghvi and Sukani started the company together. According to the company’s website, the three friends had also visited Germany before starting the company. Natraj pencil was the first product of this company, whose demand in the market increased so much that in a short time the meaning of pencil became only Natraj.

The Natraj brand, known as black and red colored pencils, has now launched all products related to pens, pencils, along with erasers, sharpeners, pencils, cutters, kits and stationery in the market.
