A few years ago a unique opportunity presented itself in the field of mineral export. Shakti was prompt to lap up the offering and created Shakti International Pvt. Ltd. Export consignments began with Iron Ore Fines, a commodity largely treated as waste, but due to certain technological advancements in this field in China, it became a commodity of great utility. The Shakti Group was successful in addressing this unique need gap and generated significant revenue.

     In 1974, SNG Sirigeri sowed the seeds of The Shakti Group with an HPCL Dealership. It is this HPCL Petrol Pump Dealership which Mr. Srinivaas Sirigeri inherited from his father. As a business school in many ways, Mr.Venkoba Shetty imparted key entrepreneurial lessons to his son. As one of the prominent highway outlets in Karnataka with state of the art facilities, it has recorded the highest sales for that region and has also been accredited by Beuro Veritas agency as one of the best in Karnataka region.
