The Visionary
Dr.J.Rameswar Rao, Founder-Chairman of My Home Group of Companies is a well-known industrialist, humanitarian, and philanthropist. After completion of a 4-year homeopathy course in 1978, he decided to set up his own private practice at Hyderabad.  Dr. Rao in pursuit of his passion later ventured into real estate by starting My Home Constructions in the year 1981, and by his vision started My Home Industries (Maha Cement) in the year 1998, and further My Home Power (presently Abja Power) in 2000. Today the Group is valued over INR 4,000 crores.
The core of his business philosophy, “A firm’s accounted profit does not reflect its true business performance,” may sound baffling to many but then Dr. Rao, blessed with the midas touch, is no ordinary entrepreneur.
After firmly establishing himself first as a realtor and then as a developer who set up My Home Constructions Private Limited in 1981. My Home constructions to date have built projects of 10.5 million sq.ft. area, 14.5 million sq.ft. under construction and tens of millions sq. ft. under planning stage.
Being a medical doctor himself, Dr.Rao is not oblivious to the health needs of the poor and the marginalized, especially in rural areas inspired and guided by the towering spiritual personality of Sri Tridandi Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji, Dr.Rao helped setup a homeopathic college in Shamshabad, near Hyderabad with a turnout of 100 students per year.
Alongside the college an 80 bed hospital was setup to cater to the needs of the poo in the neighboring village, the hospital is equipped with state–of–the–art facilities and dispenses holistic medicine staffed by eminent surgeons and physicians.
The foregoing is a brief narrative about My Home Industries and the all-round achievement of its presiding genius Dr. J. Rameswar Rao who has approved in addition several other institutions to create the void in the cultural and spiritual space of Hyderabad. His personality is unique and his mission boundless.
An Environmentally Efficient Cement
Waste Management – MHIPL as part of the waste management drive for resource conservation, environmentally efficient and sustainable development has initiated use of alternate fuel in its cement klins. MHIPL has installed and commissioned alternate fuel handling and firing system in April’12 with a capital expenditure of about Rs.12 crores and started utilizing liquid organic hazardous waste generated from pharmaceutical industries as alternate fuel in cement klins.
The consistency in quality is a big question since the receipts are from different pharmaceutical companies with a wide range of solvents and products. Hence continuous monitoring (pre testing of liquid wastes) and data collection is of utmost importance for effective usage of these wastes without compromise on safety, environment operations, and quality of clinker.
MHIPL’s alternate fuel consumption (TSR) has increased from 0.9% to 2.5% over years with a target to reach 3% for FY 18-19.
MHIPL initiatives for waste management ensure environmental benefits include conservation of fossil fuel, waste to energy, reduction of carbon footprints, HW waste disposal in environmental sound manager etc.
