Early life and education[edit]

N. Jehangir was born in Alwaye (now Aluva), on 1 December 1955, and is the son of a Pathanamthitta agriculturalist, Assanar Nagoor Rawther. He is also the grandson of prominent industrialist and philanthropist, M.K. Mackar Pillay.

Jehangir completed his schooling at the Union Christian College. He later enrolled at the TKM College of Engineering, from where he eventually dropped out to pursue entrepreneurship.[3]

NeST Group[edit]

In 1998, Jehangir founded the NeST Group with his brother and former IBM executive, Javad Hassan.[7][8][6][3] NeST was initially an electronics manufacturing outsourcing company, but has diversified into software, real estate, beverages, healthcare and precision tools.[7]

The company has grown into a multi-national business conglomerate with operations in the United States, the United Arab Emirates, Australia, Japan, and Thailand.[3][7]

In 2016, the Electronic Industries Association of India announced that the NeST Group was that year's largest exporter of electronic goods from India.[9]
