Commenting on his decision to step down from active role in the firm, Singh said: “Having spent almost two decades setting up and running Fortis, our mission of saving and enriching lives is an integral part of my being. Over time this has inspired me to do more direct service and give back to society a little of what I have received in abundance.”

Singh said he had requested for ‘Sewa’ at Radha Soami Beas, headquartered near Amritsar.

“I am fortunate to have been accepted. I will move to Dera, Beas post transitioning my executive responsibilities at Fortis,” he said.

Supporting his younger brother’s decision, Fortis Executive Chairman Malvinder Singh said: “It is not always that one gets to commit oneself in the service of the society and I am delighted that Shivinder is taking this step at this phase of his life.”

Shivinder’s contribution to the creation and evolution of Fortis as the leading healthcare delivery organisation of India has been tremendous, Malvinder added.

Singh founded Fortis Healthcare with his elder brother Malvinder Mohan Singh in late 1990s. The brothers sold their stake in Ranbaxy to Japanese drug major Daiichi Sankyo in 2008.

Singh is also one of the principal promoters of Religare Enterprises Ltd, Super Religare Laboratories Ltd and Religare Technologies Ltd.

He did MBA with specialisation in health sector management from the Duke University Business School, USA. He is an alumnus of Doon School and did Honours in Mathematics from St Stephens College.

Currently, the company operates its healthcare delivery services in India, Dubai, Mauritius and Sri Lanka with 54 healthcare facilities (including projects under development), approximately 10,000 potential beds and 260 diagnostic centres.

  1. Human mind and its quest for truth and peace are the driving factors for humanity and its future. Life could be very challenging and restless when nobody knows the truth or real nature of this universe that we all live in. Nobody has the answers either…all we can do is question, question and question!

      And to “question”, you need to direct those questions at specific people. Right?

      Like for eg. – how YOU “LOOK for Both Mr. Nalin Kumara & Mr. Lobo” whenever there are potholes in Mangalooru. 🙂

      Truly I tell thee – a greater Joke no man hath heard! 🙂

        Yes – the questions need to be directed to intelligent people. Since you stand no chance in this department, you better continue to focus on your ‘anganavaadi’ level jokes and beedi business!! smiles…
