Airtel Sunil Mittal
The Start-up India initiative will help the youth in building a strong India, Sunil Bharti Mittal, founder and chairman, Bharti Enterprises, said here on Saturday.

Sunil Mittal is the chairman of Bharti Airtel, India’s number one telecom operator base on mobile subscriber base and telecom revenue. Sunil Mittal is the only keynote speaker from India at the forthcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC 2016) in Barcelona this month as per the latest information from telecom industry body GSMA.

Addressing students at the convocation ceremony at Amity University Gurgaon after being conferred an honorary doctorate degree, Mittal said that when he completed his education in 1976, there were very little options of help and hope in the business arena.

At that time, everything, every policy was decided by the central government, he said.

“What to produce, how to produce, when to produce, in what quantity. They were all decided by the government in Delhi,” Mittal said, adding that now the time has completely changed, and one can imagine and come forward with ideas and start working.

Options and capital are now available for people who really want to do something, he said, hoping that the Start-ups initiative will help youth make a new India.
