The Sultanate of Oman - an Overview- Khimji Ramdas

Where We Are

The Sultanate of Oman - an Overview

Strategically and economically, the Sultanate of Oman appears to be one of the world's newer nations, as a result of its planned growth and vigour and character of its people.

In fact, it is one of the oldest civilizations. For centuries, this magnificent land which straddles the trade routes between East and West, served as a link between Arabia and Africa, and India as well. Omani sailors were known the world over, and renowned for their skill, courage and endurance.

The accession of H.M. Sultan Qaboos bin Said in 1970 ushered in an unprecedented era of progress and prosperity.

Under his pragmatic leadership, the Sultanate of Oman has developed into a modern state that provides generous benefits to its people, coupled with steady economic growth. Its mercantile links with the rest of the world have been enhanced, and commerce flourishes.

In this expanding economy, the business house of Khimji Ramdas bears special mention, not only for its historical links with Oman, but also for its inherent strength as a commercial entity.

Khimji Ramdas was established in the Sultanate of Oman in the year 1870. Our corporate office is in Muscat which is the capital of the country. A country-wide network of branch offices located in key areas ensure wide distribution of Khimji Ramdas products and services. From Salalah, the summer capital of Oman to Sohar, the birthplace of the legendary Sindbad, Khimji Ramdas is represented throughout the length and the breadth of the country.

Few companies can claim the in-depth knowledge of the market that Khimji Ramdas has acquired during the course of over a century.

PROMINENT INDIAN BUSINESSMAN -KANAKSINH KHIMJI- MUSCAT OMAN


Prominent Indian Businessman Kanak Khimji who is the only NRI from the entire Middle East to get the first Pravasi Bharathiya Puraskar from the Government of India during the Pravasi day celebrations in New Delhi. The Indian Merchants Community in Oman falicitated the award winner. Seen here is Indian Ambassador in Oman K.M.Meena presenting a memento to the award winner.

According to sources, the Indian Embassy had proposed a list of prominent NRIs to be considered for the much coveted award. It is a typical Indian mentality that when someone gets an award or recognition, others would also like to get the same. According to sources, the award this year was given only to People of Indian origin and not to any Non Resident Indians. That explains why two prominent Malayali businessmen in Gulf did not get the award. " Malayalis are the largest NRI community in the Gulf, why our people are not given award," asked none other than the Kerala chief Minister A.K.Antony. The final selection was done by a special committee under the Vice President.

Now another person frm the same Indian community has come forward with a new reveleation. Read the email below for your comments.

It all began over a century ago when Ramdas Thackersey set sail from the coastal town of Mandvi in Kutch, on India's western coast. He was succeeded by his son Khimji Ramdas, who sowed seeds that eventually grew into a global enterprise that was named after him.

The baton of entrepreneurship was passed on to his sons, Gokaldas Khimji and Mathradas Khimji.

The partners of Khimji Ramdas today are:
