On the formation of NOIDA as one of the biggest Industrial city of UP(India) in 1980, It was felt necessary by the Industrialists & Prominent Citizens to perform their social and moral responsibility. They need a platform from where they can serve for the upliftment of the poor and needy villagers of Noida and its neighborhood. Lion Rajiv Mittal took the initiative to form a group of such persons and get them associated with the most reputed Charitable International Society.
