Two years later, Gaikwad was inducted as a graduate trainee engineer in Telco (now Tata Motors), where he earned management appreciation for saving huge costs through his innovative use of cables otherwise meant to be scrapped. He used this opportunity to request the management for some jobs for rural youth from his village. The management agreed and BVG began informally as 8-member in-house outsourced housekeeping outfit within Telco (now Tata Motors) in 1997, with Gaikwad still employed in the company.
