An honors graduate with a degree in Commerce from Delhi University, and a masters in Business Management, Duggal spent the first nine years of his professional life with Tata Group of Companies. A deep entrepreneurial urge and vision found fulfillment when Minar Travels, Berlin invited him to set up the India enterprise to handle German tourists. He established Minar Travels (India) Pvt. Ltd. in New Delhi in 1992 with a modest beginning, with ‘one employee and a princely sum of Rs. Two Lakhs’. Within just a year, the company was earning awards and Duggal quickly expanded the scope of its business to include aviation services, tourist charters and destination management from around the globe.
A man that is deterred by nothing, Duggal is a creative thinker and visionary who approached markets before others ventured there. When he saw potential in the Russian market, but language was a barrier, he simply learnt Russian! This is a testimony of his dedication & spirit. Minar works with Russia, Kazakhstan and Mongolia among other places, all because of him. Today, Minar has an international presence in 32 countries, with inroads in the markets of Latin America, Europe and Asia; is one of the biggest Aviation Services and Destination Management Companies in the country; has 16 offices in India and 9 overseas and is the GSA for 8 airlines.
Duggal has been the cornerstone for Minar. He believes in leading from the front and this has brought him numerous accolades, including the National Tourism Award, 10 times! Duggal assured that he inculcates ethical values in his team and deeply cares about their growth & well-being. On this day, Minar is a sought after employer in the tourism trade in India, and employs more than 200 people. Duggal believes that when one has more than he needs, one should build a longer table, not a taller fence. He’s closely associated with the Holy Family Ashaniwas & funds initiatives that provide shelter, education & rehabilitation for underprivileged girls, and has personally adopted orphans to provide them with a happier & healthier life.
Every day for the past 26 years, Duggal has been leading his team with the same passion & zeal that he had since Day 1 and that is what separates him from the rest.
For him, Minar is not something he does; it’s who he is.
