Kashyap Group is celebrating its 30 years in the the automotive market with a focus on its core business with top car brands.

The group was established by Rajinder Kashyap, who had a petrol station and a workshop in Germany, after his return to India in 1986. His objective was to start a workshop especially for imported luxury cars in New Delhi.

Kashyap travelled throughout the country servicing and repairing imported luxury cars and managed to establish a name for himself in the market.

The workshop that was created was completely as per European standards. He received full support of his wife Laura Kashyap-van der Vleuten in the venture.

Within a few years after the company started, BMW AG appointed Kashyap Motors Authorized BMW Service dealer and soon after that appointed the first Official BMW Importer in India.

Both his children have become part of the business and have both grown after going through different positions in the group into professional directors.

Anita Kashyap-Monné has brought completely new concepts like combining fashion and cars, whereas Anand Kashyap is the first "KFZ Meister" and still one of the very few certified technical automotive specialists in India that has brought a wealth of expertise to the workshops.

There are various business units within the group, but the focus has always been on the service part of the business. This made the group customer focussed rather than product sales focussed.

Auto Kashyap India, headed by Anand Kashyap, has been the authorized dealer of Volvo in Delhi NCR since 2009.

As this dealership is also the only Official Diplomat Sales Agent in India, they cater to all diplomatic missions.

The dealership is located at 20 Okhla Industrial Estate Phase 3, the location where Rajinder Kashyap started the business.

Kashyap Fiat is headed by Anita Kashyap Monné and has locations at 46 Okhla Industrial Estate Phase 3 in New Delhi and at C-18 Industrial Area Phase 2 in Noida since 2012. This dealership is the largest Fiat and Abarth dealer in North India.

Kashyap Motors, managed by Aman Kashyap, is a new dealership for Ashok Leyland Light Vehicles located at 105, Okhla Industrial Estate Phase 3 in New Delhi. This is a fairly new segment that will rapidly grow as more and more small commercial vehicles will take over the transport of goods within cities.

Classic and vintage cars have always been a passion within the family. Besides collecting, the group is also specialised in restoring and renovating classic and vintage cars in the best original way possible. The personal collecting counts over 50 cars and are available to visit at our Kashyap Classic Cars Museum in Noida on prior appointment.
